ParentMagic Inc releases September email and web article for parents with kids returning to school this fall. The article, "Homework Do's and Don'ts," give tips to parents on how to facilitate healthy homework habits at home each evening.
Featuring practical tips, the article sheds light on how to encourage good habits with homework each evening, while avoiding common mistakes parents make which actually cause more stress in the student. Consistency with the student is key.
"If you can avoid it, don't let the homework time change each day. One of the best ways of setting things up is to have the child come home, get a snack, goof off for about 30-45 minutes, and then sit down and try to finish his work before dinner. Then the whole evening is free."
Parents often do not realize that allowing natural consequences is an act of loving, active parenting. "If you are having trouble with homework for the first time—say with a fourth grader—consider using Natural Consequences first. That means do nothing. Keep your mouth shut and see if the child and the teacher can work things out."
Part two of the article is coming out in October. The current article is available in its entirety at http://www.123magic.com/Newsletter-September-2013. For more information, or to sign up to receive the newsletter directly in your emails, visit 123magic.com.
