Whether you develop a permanent spot or use a dining room table, make sure you help your child maintain a consistent study schedule. Routines provide structure and are stress relieving. Some children work best diving into homework immediately after school, while others do better with a brief snack and some “down time” before they begin. Determine with your child what their best study time is and help them stick to it for one month until it becomes part of their daily schedule. This technique will not only help them handle their homework while in school but will also help them organize their lives effectively as they get greater responsibilities.
