GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Homework can be a challenge for students and their parents, so Maranda sat down with a psychologist from Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services to share some tips on how you can help your child.

Helping children with homework

  • Let them get their energy out
  • Write assignments down, cross off when done
  • Check to ensure all work is done
  • Allow breaks, offer help but don’t do it for them 

Help children focus on homework

  • Eliminate distractions
  • Designate a homework time and place
  • Praise them when they are focusing
  • Practice what you preach
