Homework can be an effective way to help children review and practice the skills they have taught at school and can improve their learning. Homework can also improve your child’s personal enrichment by teaching him responsibility, such as working independently, organizing topics, and especially organizing time.
It has already rained since you last faced divisions without a calculator, or second-degree equations (x equals minus b + – …?). And now your son is at home with a backpack full of homework and needs guidance.
How to motivate child to do homework?
This time-solving multiplication problem seems more difficult than it used to be. If you do not feel safe, if you are pissed off with your memory or if you want to well, here are some ideas so you and your partner can continue batting on your little one’s computer without having your homework sound like nails on aboard.
Do not pretend that you know of those subjects in which you are really a little lost. Pretending to be the guru of, for example, the natural sciences, will lead you both to impractical confusion. If you see that you reach a point of no exit, you can always email to the teacher to clarify it or to send you additional resources on the subject.
Nor is it advisable to “try to learn something quickly,” children are not stupid and often realize. Trying to improvise the response or develop a superficial and poorly prepared response can confuse your child and distract him from his teacher’s explanation.
Ask Google professor
Gone is that of consulting an encyclopedia or having to go to the library? The Internet has changed the way we access information. Why not take advantage of it?
The network is full of amazing online teaching tools, from videos on YouTube to practical exercises with solutions. A quick internet search can often give you the clarity you need and add some concrete to those slightly shaky foundations. He thinks that the doubt that you have someone has already had it before, and probably there is also the answer. Knowing how to search Google is to have a key to master wisdom.
Hotline for homework: O friends, what do I love you for?
Call a friend, friend, or mommy or the daddy of the school (with the latter, check it out, it is for your son).
Distribute the matters between you and your partner according to your strengths and ask your son also to suggest contacts. In this way, he will also feel comfortable looking for help when you are stuck.
If your school has a class blog, this can be a good source of information on the topics they are working on. Finally, consider using social networks to surround yourself with pages related to homework and subjects. In a while, you can have your wall or your news supply full of information related to the subjects that cost you the most.
Don’t mix dinner with geometry.
And is that if you try to boil the vegetable while learning the order of the planets, we see it that along the way the disaster will happen. Doing everything and also the duties at the same time ends up creating a tense and distracting environment. Parents end up frustrating, our attitude changes and we often end up arguing with our children, something that does not help the situation.
The best thing is that, if we are with the planets, we are with the planets. It is better to devote less time but all our attention than an entire afternoon with vague explanations that will only confuse and frustrate us all.
Invest in a tutor?
If you see that your child has problems to keep up with the class, he does not finish clearing up his homework. Besides, you do not have time to help him, perhaps you should a private teacher. Personally, and I only say it to support the text above with my experience. I was an ESO children’s tutor when I was in college and that their results improved markedly.
He thinks as the course progresses. The difficulty is higher and there are subjects such as mathematics. If he does not learn them well at first, he will drag them until he finishes.
