THE PROBLEM WITH HOMEWORK

HOMEWORK – A DREADED TASK
 
A very common attitude that children have towards homework is that homework is something bad and terrible. Most kids hate and detest homework. They think that they have been cursed when given homework and they therefore try to avoid it or put it off till as late as they can afford to do so.
When your child comes home from school and a discussion on homework begins, it usually ends up in a fight. Homework and bad grades are the 2 most common reasons for a fight amongst parents and children at this age. What your child really needs is for you to motivate and encourage him. You must support his thoughts and opinions, yet be firm about getting the homework done. If the homework given, is well attended to and a nice schedule to do it is maintained, it leads to a happy, normal and healthy relationship between the child and the parent.
 
RESPONSIBILITY
 
As a parent, it is your responsibility to see to it that your child does his homework. In order to ensure this, there are a few things, which can be done.
  • Discipline your child and introduce a fixed time in the day which is reserved just for homework.
  • Make sure that the time selected is convenient both for you as well as your child.
  • If various tasks and assignments have to be done, you can help your child space out the assignment by allotting a fixed amount of time for each assignment.
  • After the homework is completed, let your child relax by either going down to play or going for a walk, or you could even simply let him watch some television.
 
ACTUAL TIME OF HOMEWORK
 
At this point of time, care must be taken that your child is in the right frame of mind. He must be in a relaxed environment and there should be no loud sounds disturbing him. If your child is impatient and refuses to sit quite, you could sit with him in the room and do some of your quiet work be it reading a book or checking bills. This will help teach your child the importance of doing his work attentively and quietly.
 
YOUR ROLE AS A PARENT
 
As a parent, you must encourage your child to do his homework and always motivate and support him. You must remind him that homework is necessary and important and that the time allotted for homework is a fixed time and must be used only for homework Show interest by asking him what he has for homework and what was taught at school that day Once in a while, check up on his work by asking him to recite a poem learnt at school, or check his spelling and vocabulary. It is important to ensure that as a parent, you do not over involve yourself in your child’s work or else this will make your child feel incapable and less competent. Once in a while you must give small encouraging words and praise your child for doing his homework well and on time.
