1. The first step is to set a goal you are working towards for homework. It is best to include both the quality and quantity of homework you want your child to achieve and alternative learning tasks for the days he does not have homework. This way you will achieve both good quality homework, a consistant routine of learning for a specified amount of time or amount of productivity each day. For example, a good example of a goal might be to complete the assigned homework each day and to check over a few of the items with you at the end to make sure it is high in quality. If there is no homework the child might be required to complete on page of a workbook or oe level on a computer program for learning reading such as the Mimio or headsprout program levels.
2. The next step is to identify why we are doing the homework clearly for the child. Parents can even go on you tube and find different colleges of professions that require a degree in high school or more to achieve. Discus life goals wth your child and different options. Make sure to point out to your child that by getting a job he will have the ability to earn money and by preferred items such as toys, cars, house or anything they want in life!
3. Parents must have available some immediate rewards to give their child after homework is completed. Each child is different. Some children like edible items such as gummy bears or cookies. Some children like games such as computer games, television, ipod games or interactive board games. These should be delivered immediately as possible on days that the homework is completed.
