Reblog of a meaningful recent posting by Darien’s Youth Asset Team

Asset ~ Commitment to Learning  – Homework
“What’s the point of homework?”  While homework reinforces the subjects your children study in school, homework also teaches children important life lessons like how to follow directions, to manage their time, to set priorities and to work on their own. Establish a homework routine including when and where to do their homework. Is the space free of clutter? Is all technology turned off? Allow them to work on their own but stay close by for questions. Help them with study strategies like making flashcards or creating helpful acronyms for difficult memorization. Do your own paperwork or reading while your child is studying. Set up the expectation that work must be completed before engaging in other activities. Research shows that children who spend at least one hour on homework a night are more likely to grow up healthy, stay committed to learning and achieve their goals.
