Set a Routine

Is it easier for your child to do his homework right when he gets home or after he's had some time to rest? Does he need a brain break every half hour, or does he work better with bigger chunks of uninterrupted time? You may have to experiment to see what schedule will help your child be most productive, but once you find the sweet spot, stick to it. Setting a routine will help him get into study mode quickly and easily.
