Do you dread the nightly homework battles with your child? Are your evenings spent hovering, hand-holding, and helping your child through assignments? Do you wish he could get his work done independently — and on time — no matter what the subject? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you’re in the right place for solutions.

Homework doesn’t actually start at home. It begins at school — with copying down the assignments correctly and bringing home books and materials to complete them. Still, you can implement many strategies at home to ease the burden on you and your child. Here, we’ll explore out-of-the box and creative tools your student can use to stay on task and on track.

Bottom line? The best homework strategy is one that taps into your child’s inner strengths and needs, and provides the tools and resources needed to build executive-function muscles over time.

In this episode, learn:

  • How to set up your child’s home environment so it engages them to get homework done
  • Homework “games” your student can “play”
  • How to develop a “Personal Homework Profile” to help your child learn what helps (and hinders) getting homework done
  • Creative ideas for planning and working on long-term projects and assignments
  • How to help your student “see” time in order to learn how to manage it
