3 Secrets Parents Must Know: How To Make Homework Easier?

It’s no secret that homework can be a source of stress for both children and parents. According to a recent study, 70% of children reported finding homework difficult, while 40% of parents found it stressful to help their children with homework. At Success Tutoring, we understand the challenges of homework, which is why we have developed strategies to make it easier and more effective for children and their parents.

In this blog post, we will share three parent secrets to making homework easier. By implementing these strategies, you can create a positive and productive homework environment that will help your child succeed.

Secret #1: Create a designated homework area

One of the most important things you can do to make homework easier for your child is to create a designated homework area. This should be a quiet, well-lit area free from distractions such as TV or mobile phones. The area should also be equipped with all the necessary supplies, including pencils, erasers, rulers, and calculators.

Having a dedicated space for homework will help your child focus and avoid distractions. It will also signal to your child that homework is an important task that deserves their attention and respect.

Secret #2: Encourage Independence 

While it can be tempting to help your child with homework, it’s important to encourage independence. By allowing your child to complete their homework on their own, you are helping them develop important skills such as time management, self-discipline, and problem-solving.

However, this doesn’t mean that you should completely disengage from the homework process. Instead, be available to answer questions and provide guidance when your child needs it. By striking a balance between independence and support, you can help your child develop the skills they need to succeed.

Secret #3: Break it up with StudySprints™ 

At Success Tutoring, we have popularised the StudySprint Technique™, which involves getting students to work for 15 minutes, setting them a target and then taking a 3-minute break in-between each ‘sprint’. This technique helps students stay focused and motivated, which can lead to better results.

Parents can also use a similar technique at home. Set a timer for 15 minutes and encourage your child to work as hard as they can during that time. Then, take a 3-minute break to stretch, get a drink of water, or do something else to clear their mind. This technique will help your child stay focused and avoid burnout.
