3 Tips to Ease Homework Stress


When the school bell rings, pandemonium ensues. Hundreds of little bodies swarm out of school, eager to get home. Once home they’re probably more interested in playing a game or watching TV than sitting down for a homework session. Here are some tips to help ease homework stress.


our presidents


The T.V. Transition
If you have a hard time tearing your kid away from the television once it’s time to do homework, it may be time to switch up the routine. Replace after school TV time with story time. An entertaining and engaging story can be the perfect way to transition into study time.


Stick with it on the Weekend
It’s easy for kids to zone out and throw school out the window once Friday afternoon hits (heck, adults do it, too!). But letting weekends go unstructured makes going back to school on Monday that much more painful. Allow your kids to relax and have fun on the weekends, but make time for studies as well.


Year-Round Routines
Spring Break is on the horizon and summer will be here before we know it. These kinds of interruptions means it is important to establish and maintain good study habits at home year-round. During the breaks, be sure to incorporate plenty of educational activities, field trips, and, of course, reading!


Tell us about your after school routines. Post on our blog or Facebook page to share your parenting tips with FarFaria.


Happy Reading!
