It's offically back to school for some, and for some parents homework time can really be alot. Trust me, I know however, once you create structce, a routine, and communication with you childs teacher. Homework simply will become alot easier in your home. Below, I'm sharing my homework tips for parents. 

Homework Tips for Parents

Create A Routine
It's really as simple as creating a routine for your children, children want and need some type of structure. Yes, it's okay for your children to have a snack when they come home. However, if they don't have any sports or extracurricular activities after school, homework should be the first priority.

Homework Station
No matter the size of your home. Create a homework area for your children. Make sure the area is fully stocked with items they'll need, it's so easy to get distracted.

Cut Down On Distractions 
It's so easy to be a distraction, try to cut down on them by not being a distraction to your children, especially at the start of the school year, as they're still getting in the swing of being back to school.
Communicate with Other Parents
I know, the last thing you want to do is feel like you're a burden to other parents, however, it really does take a village. Whether your child is struggling, or you simply are struggling to maintain a homework routine for your children, connect with other parents to see what works for them. 
Know When To Take a Break
I know, you really just want to get the homework over and done with. I get it. Been there, done that! However, it's so important to know when to take a break for you and your child. Studies have shown that it's very important to take a break during homework time. Especially as your child is getting older and the homework expectations are increasing.

Know What You're Good At

During college, I've learned that one of my favorite subjects is history and I love helping my son when he has history homework. However, that's not the only subject he has. When he was smaller, it was super easy to brush up on my math skills. YouTube and Google search has truly been my best friend. Now that he is older and in high school. I seek assistance in the areas that I'm not too confident in.

Know When to Get Help
Our local library offers free tutoring and a lot of the tutors will assist with a range of subjects. Learn what resources are out there. Communicate with other parents. Maybe you guys have children the same age, and they're good at math and you're amazing in English. Some people really don't mind helping if you just ask. They may even have a child in the same grade or a litter older who excels in the subject. If they're unable to assist you, many people know of amazing tutors that they could refer you to.

Communicate with Your Child's Teacher
It's so important to communicate with your child's teacher. Ask for resources that will assist your child in their class. A lot of teachers love to help in any way needed. A lot of teachers will also give an outline of the year/semester so you're able to see what the expectations and assignments will be moving forward. If you have a question about an assignment, ask.
