As your kids head back to school, the battle of doing homework begins all over again. Are you prepared this time around? There are some helpful tips you can use to ensure homework success. A lot depends on how old your students are but the number one rule is to eliminate distractions. This means no TV in the background, no music playlists and by all means no Smartphones. You might even want to collect the phones until the homework is done.
You’ll also want to have supplies ready. This means extra paper, pens and pencils. If your student is doing their work on the computer then make sure you’ve got ink and paper for the printer and a thumb drive for backing up. Yes, every piece of computer-generated homework should have a backup so they can’t use the excuse, “The computer ate my homework.”
It’s helpful to pick a standard homework time. This might be right after the kids get home from school or right after dinner. Having a consistent schedule can help kids stay on track. You’ll also want to create a homework zone where the actual work will be done. This is more important for younger students. Your teens can probably be on their own but the young ones might need a helping hand. The dining room table is a good place but if they constantly have to be moved to make way to setting the table then it could be a distraction. You might be better off with a decent desk in the family room where you can watch over the study.
To make way for that desk it might be time to say good-bye to some clutter. Nothing wrong with that and the more junk you can throw out the more space you’ll get back. Here is where a company like Junk King Stockton can be a huge help. These are the junk removal experts who could have your home decluttered in no time.
When you’ve got Junk King working for you there is no end to what you can throw out. That’s because you’ll be getting a pair of very capable movers and their large truck. Another way to look at this process is if it took two movers to bring something in it’s going to take two movers to take it out. That means all your old furniture, appliances and mattresses can finally be removed from the home. You can also count on Junk King Stockton to take away your unwanted e-waste like outdated computers and TVs. Making your home free of junk will go a long way towards having your students score big on their next report card!
