Three year olds are still in exploratory stages of development. Therefore, there concentration for a task is often short and intense.

Here is a link from our website to give you more developmental information:

Five year olds tend to be tired after a long day. So a break and some recreation may help to recharge the academic batteries, so to speak.


Here are some resources, many from Dr. Lynne Kenney, the Family Coach, which may assist with homework completion.
