Create a routine to take the hassle out of homework
Homework isn't on most kids' lists of favorite things. But it doesn't have to be a hassle. To make study time go more easily at your house, set a regular weekday homework time. If your child is irritable or tired, give her a healthy snack before she starts work. Hunger can be a big distraction. It may also help to give her 30 minutes to run around outside and blow off steam before settling down.
