If you don’t know it yet, you will soon. Children thrive on routine. They should know that at a certain time every day is reserved for studying and doing homework. The best time is usually not directly after school. When they get home, first let them unwind from the day. Relax, have a snack, play outside or do some form of exercise. Parents should let the child in involved in making a decision as to exactly what time works for them.
Even if the child does not have homework, the reserved time should be used to review the work they did that day, or for reading or working on an upcoming project, or researching a subject that the child enjoys.
Remember routine helps improve a child’s organisational and study skills, leading to higher marks and ultimately a happier successful child. What’s your top study tip for parents, teachers and tutors?
