Summer may be in full swing with barbeques, swimming, and vacation travel. School is definitely *not* on the minds of most school-aged children. They have spent time learning and studying and taking tests, so they want to leave it behind them and just have fun. Homework doesn’t have to be scary because #PGeveryday is making homework easier for parents and students.
Making Homework Easier With P&Geveryday
But summer will be over before you know it, and it will be time to think about a new school year. It never hurts to get a head start on things, especially with homework(and believe me, your kids will not agree with that!). Depending on what grade your student is in, homework can be a real challenge for both students and parents, too.
So where does a parent turn to in order to get some ideas for making homework easier? It can seem pretty overwhelming sometimes but P&Geveryday has some terrific ideas to help you get the school year and homework off to a great start. But they have more than just articles on helping your kids with homework. Check out their website for other family topics, recipes, and so much more!
A lot of the things I learned were through trial and error. Mostly error on my part, thankfully my kids are pretty forgiving of Mom’s lack of homework skills. My biggest problem was/is letting them go and letting them do their thing. So here are a few tips I have learned to help homework be a little less stressful for the parents.
- For the first week or two, check your child’s agenda, class syllabus, and textbook for a general overview. Then back off.
- Let them fail. Yeah, sounds like a scary thing. But you would be amazed how motivating a single failing grade is to your student.
- Open the lines of communication with your child’s teachers, but don’t go overboard every time your child has a bad grade. I learned that the hard way.
- Learn with them! You will gain respect from your child when you allow them to teach you how to do a math problem or learn a new vocabulary word. It motivates them to work even harder to learn new concepts.
So those are just a few tips that I learned from experience. You can find so much more on the P&Geveryday website to help you develop a good plan for homework help. There are also great ideas for setting up a study area, creating dinnertime conversations, and balancing school with sports! And the information doesn’t stop there. If you love Facebook, then P&Geveryday has a Facebook page that is perfect for you.
