Set a time of the day aside for homework and don’t stray (often). Collaborating with the teacher ahead of time may insure an appropriate response to “the dog ate my homework”.
Time slams to a crawl for many kids when faced with a stack of papers and a #2 pencil. It’s even worse when your child is hunched over the books alone thinking that the rest of the family is having a party in the other room. There comes a time when kids have to accept that homework is their responsibility.
Homework, or a homework assignment, is a set of tasks assigned to students by their teachers to be completed outside the class.
to prepare them for upcoming (or complex or difficult) lessons, to extend what they know by having them apply it to new situations, or to integrate their abilities by applying different skills to a single task.
Homework also provides an opportunity for parents to participate in their children's education.
Students that reported stress from homework were more likely to be deprived of sleep.
