4 Tips for the nightly homework struggle



So, it’s time for homework and your kids are fighting you. Are you prepared for the nightly homework battle? Here are a few tips that might help with the struggle.


  1. Establish a routine. Write the routine on a poster board or paper and hang it where everyone can see it.
  2. Designate a homework area. This might be the kitchen table for younger students so you are available to help. Or, it might be a desk in your child’s bedroom for older students. Be sure everyone knows where homework is worked on each night.
  3. Set a homework time. This might be right after school, after a small snack, or after dinner. Be sure everyone knows when homework is to be worked on and that it is at a consistent time.
  4. Be available to help and be positive about homework. For younger students, you might need to sit with them and offer some help. For older students, they need to know you’re available should they need help. Be sure you are positive about how hard your children are working on their homework.
