Figure out what makes a productive workspace for your child. Does he work best in a quiet spot or an area with a little background noise? A well-lit desk, especially one near natural light, is a safe bet. Help him focus by limiting distractions during his study time and making sure that all the materials he needs, such as erasers, rulers, and a pencil sharpener, are within reach.
