Don’t force your child to do homework as soon as he or she gets home.
Let him or her have some time after school to give his or her mind a break before starting homework.
However, homework is part of being a student—and one that has an impact on future academic performance.
This makes it important to figure out how to encourage kids to do their homework without a nightly quarrel.
Homework is a basic pillar of the education system.
As unpopular as it might be with some kids, most parents and teachers defend homework, saying it reinforces classroom learning, helps create good work habits and discipline, and benefits concentration and memory.
Rather than yelling, have a calm discussion with your child about why homework is important.
Fighting with your child will increase stress and frustration, leaving him or her unable and unwilling to focus on homework.
This break can help improve motivation and focus when it is time for your child to do his or her homework.
Show encouragement and appreciation of your child’s hard work when he or she has completed his or her homework.
