It’s back to school time, which has me reflecting on how homework was done around the house back when my kids were young.
Designing a perfect environment for doing homework never seemed to work out the way I envisioned it, with the kids quietly working at the kitchen table while I stirred around getting dinner ready. And, at the same time supper almost fully prepared, everyone would be finishing up their assignments.
...At least that’s how I had it planned out in my mind ;-/
Unfortunately, homework time never quite worked out like that.
Most of the time we’d wind up driving all over town, carting them from activity to activity, and none of us would get home until late evening.
Chaos and disorganization: these were the results of my “perfect plan”.
Maybe things are different in your house?
Maybe you are able to score straight A's?
Well done homework assignments can best be achieved this way:
By creating a comfortable, functional environment where your kids can study and do their assignments. It makes getting it done much easier for everyone involved.
