No one likes doing homework specially the kids and as adults we too have homework that needs to be done, yet we are able to push ourselves to somehow or the other complete them. Yet when it comes to kids, such motivation is rather lacking in every way and as an adult it is your duty to make sure they complete them on time. So the best way to do so would be by making homework fun. Here are some tips you could use.
Design a good space
For any person to work well, there needs to be a good space. Similarly, even when it comes to kids they need a space for them to concentrate and work well, however if this space is dull and boring then no child would ever want to sit in front of a desk and work in here. So design a fun study space with all the little creative things and make the place interesting. This way in no time, you wouldn’t have to push them to work on their homework and they would do so on their own accord.
Track and reward
If you only know that you would be getting something in return, would you work really hard to achieve it. So apply this logic on your child as well. Track your child’s record on his or her work, what they have done so far and where they need to improve. This way you can direct your guiding to those areas that they need to specifically work on. And once they do achieve a progress in them, make sure that you reward them to keep motivating them to keep going…
Play a game
Anything is fun when it is a game, so make even learning fun by turning it in to a fun brain teaser game. Make up quizzes, millionaire questions and whatnot, to challenge your child on the knowledge he has gained so far and reward him for it. This motivates your child to work hard and feel the accomplishment of a winner by working his way through these challenges!
Work with them
Learning and doing homework shouldn’t be limited to your child sitting at a desk working his way through each problem or coping answers from the back. No, it should be something that you do with him or her. When your child knows that there is someone to guide him through complications he would feel more confident at even making an attempt to answer tough questions. So do make time in your busy schedule for this!
Use the above tips and make homework fun for your child!
