Homework - How to Get Your Kids to Take Responsibility for It

  1. 1. GetYour Kids to Take Responsibility for It Homework
  2. 2. #1: Establish a Routine Involve your child in creating a homework routine. First of all, decide when it should be done. Right after school? After some outside play and a snack? After supper? Trial and error may be needed to find the best time. Then try to make that time consistent. That helps to keep your child motivated and responsible.
  3. 3. #2: The Place Establishing a homework location is as important as establishing a time. Again, this need not follow rigid guidelines; watch your child and talk to him about how he functions best - alone? With an adult present? With music? In silence? There will be some trial and error here too, no doubt - your child may think he concentrates great working along with music, but if his homework isn't getting done, you'll have to re-think this.
  4. 4. #3: Homework Schedule Help your child work out a homework schedule. Go through the assignments and work out a timetable - how long does he estimate each assignment will take? How many assignments are there? Show him how to break up his assignments - which may seem overwhelming - into a doable list. Allow him to do more and more of the scheduling each time until he's doing it on his own.
  5. 5. #4: Rewards and Incentives Sometimes, rewards and incentives can really help. Getting a good grade can seem like a vague goal, especially to younger children. Your child may need small rewards throughout the homework session, or he may be fine with a weekly or once daily reward.
  6. 6. #5: Older Kids Older kids can shoot for a monthly goal and reward. Regardless of how long your child goes in earning his reward, experts say that a system of points tends to work best. Establish a point system where each task is worth a certain amount of points. The child can periodically "cash in" the points for privileges. You can use play money, too, for younger kids.
  7. 7. #6: Avoid Frustration Parents may get as frustrated with homework as their kids are, and it's sometimes hard to know how much help is appropriate and how much you should back off. Hopefully, these tips will help your kids take responsibility for their homework.
