What Houzz contributors are saying:
Have a relaxed chat with your child: Ask them why they think it’s important to carve out time to do homework rather than telling them they have to do it. Your child needs to find their own reasons for doing their homework. Research suggests that intrinsically motivated children (and adults) are more likely to be self-regulated, complete their tasks and achieve their goals. Offer choices: Let your child help set their homework routine. Giving your children choices helps empower them and ensures that homework is a positive activity. Set a routine: Children thrive on routine, and understanding what is expected of them allows them to take responsibility for their work. Routines could include choosing a specific time or location in the house to complete homework, and strategies for how to tackle challenges.
3. Add wall artEven for those on a budget, wall art is a quick way to give your space a new look. Stores, such as Target and Kmart, always have a selection of canvas prints to choose from, as well as a wide selection of budget-friendly frames if you want to frame your own pictures.
STEP 3: Create a homework stationWhat type and where this goes will depend on your kids’ ages. If your kids are older you may want to place a desk in their room, but when they’re still young and needing help, the perfect area could be a section of the kitchen island. Just be sure to give them their own cupboard or drawer close by so they can store all the supplies needed to complete their homework. It’s easier to start a task when everything is easy to find.
Pin it. Not everything has to go on a shelf or in a drawer. A pinboard like this one is suitable for every age, and allows kids to personalise their space. Imagine how it’s going to change over time.
