  • Back to School Tips: Help your kids do their homework

    The American Academy of Pediatrics offers the following tips to develop good homework and study habits:

    • Create an environment that is conducive to doing homework. Youngsters need a permanent work space in their bedroom or another part of the home that offers privacy.
    • Set aside ample time for homework.
    • Establish a household rule that the TV set stays off during homework time.
    • Be available to answer questions and offer assistance, but never do a child’s homework for her.
    • To help alleviate eye fatigue, neck fatigue and brain fatigue while studying, it’s recommended that youngsters close the books for 10 minutes every hour and go do something else.
    • If your child is struggling with a particular subject, and you aren’t able to help her yourself, a tutor can be a good solution. Talk it over with your child’s teacher first.
