Managing Your Time
Managing time effectively helps the child with homework and exams. It gives parents respite from nagging!! Learning to manage time can result in upset at first but with the right strategies and suggestions leads to a stress free life for both the child and the parents.
Homework is part of a child’s daily life. After the school day having to sit down and do homework can cause stress for all the family. Some children enjoy homework but others can find it frustrating, because homework tasks are beyond their skills and ability or simply take too long. Setting smaller amounts of work and/or allowing extra time will often help. Talk to your child about what they are finding difficult or why it is taking too long. Is the work too difficult? You should discuss this with the teacher in the first instance to see what can be done to help.
