Homework is something most students detest and for that they either turn out edgy in their approach or gradually lag behind. Right after spending substantial time at school, maximum students refrain from doing homework. However, without preparing at home it is impossible to complete the school curriculum effectively.
Parents make thousands of attempts to help their students stay focused, so that they could complete their homework without undergoing any complication. Parents send their children to well-known coaching classes, encourage them to join advance circles so that they could reach full potential of their ability, but regrettably, nothing turns out worthwhile.
However following few simple steps can help students achieve their goal:
It is helpful if study routine is established at home, so students would be having their mental preparations and calculations. Gradually this routine turns into a habit for them.
Timing should not be burned upon the child, rather he/she should be given authority to choose his/her own timing, which could be before or after dinner. They can do it right after coming back from school or waking early in the morning before going to school. Its better to leave the selection of timing upon them, unless they seek ways not to study at all.
Students of primary and secondary like their parents to be with them while doing their homework. So they can be accommodated near to kitchen or within the living room, except much distraction is not there. Little affection and little patting help them overcome the fear and annoyance that homework is known to bring upon them.
When students ask help, parents should intervene then, over functioning spoils everything rather than helping. So when they ask for help, suggestion or idea parents should come forward without sporting overt enthusiasm.
Few parents are in the habit of bribing their children for completing their homework. However bribing is meant for short-term gain. It should be replaced with verbal appreciation. When they study for late hours or complete task within time, positive remarks should be made.
If parents involve in partying or other fun activities, students are likely to sidetrack and fail coping up with the workload they have above them. It is a general proclivity found in students that they divert quite easily when their parent watches television or involve in party.
If possible movies and excursion can be organized with respect to what they go through in the books.
