How to Help Your Child Focus on Homework Assignments

Children seem to dread homework more than anything else. They get home after school knowing they have homework to do, but they would rather put it off until they absolutely must get it done. Even if your child gets to work right away, they will likely get distracted and lose interest. The Tutoring Center in Long Grove has some tips to help your child focus on their homework assignments.

Break Down the Assignment

If your child feels intimidated by a homework assignment because it's a large project or something they don't really understand, help them out by breaking it down. Figure out how to you can turn one large assignment into smaller, more manageable tasks. Have your child take on the assignment step by step instead of trying to do it all at once. Doing this can reduce your child's level of stress and will make them feel more comfortable taking on their homework.

Remove Distractions

It's easy for children to get distracted, especially with all the technology that surrounds them. Set up a homework area in your home and make sure your child's favorite distractions are a distance away. Avoid having televisions or tempting video games nearby. If your child is using their cell phone or computer for homework, check in every once in a while so they don't get distracted by messages from friends.

Create a Routine

Following a routine is a great way to create useful homework habits. Have designated homework and study hours every day that your child can get used to. Remember to balance out the homework and study hours with daily physical activity and playtime. Your child will be able to concentrate better on homework if they have had enough physical activity. Making time for fun will help reduce distractions as your child works.
