Homework Remains A Mystery

A child studies things with a bag that makes a great load on the back. Homework is something that constitutes a major portion of a child’s education. The kid is taught to do it all with proper attention and use of mind. However, the purpose of homework remains a mystery to that kid until he/she grows up. Children go through them but not with the understanding and idea that they ought to carry while doing the homework.

A Herculean Task Ahead

The purpose of homework is so straight and simple but a kid who is writing and reading for the very first time, it’s nothing but an activity that he/she is forced to do. Soon, children develop a good habit of finishing their work on time although they never make the most out of this activity. At least, not as much as aware children.  To make them aware, parents and teachers have got a herculean task ahead.

Shoo Away The Doubts, A Homework

Grab their hand and tell them what they are doing. More than anything, try to make the picture clear to them as to why they are doing what they are doing. Make some effort to get the questions and concerns out of them. Shoo away all of their doubts, the way they like. It works. It has worked for many parents and teachers. Parenting guide would suggest the same, in all the probability. In case, this way doesn’t bring so significant, a change, well there are many other ways. Therefore, one’s supposed to keep trying.

Give A Different Standpoint

Make your kid practice and see homework from a different standpoint. Make it look different. Each one of us knows very well how we were taught addition and subtraction. “Suppose you got 10 candies and you give 3 to me, how many are you left with..” Feeling nostalgic? Well, don’t. This way Mathematics seemed fun and so practical. Why not make that little, new student’s studies and work easier using something similar. It doesn’t need much. Teach that little, new student the application of what he’s doing in classes and homework. As a result, the kid would develop an interest.

Let’s Laugh And Work For Future

Keep playing games that involve the application of the lessons the kid is learning. When the child wins, he gets motivated and that motivation pushes him/her to learn and explore more. Simply put, an interest is sparked. At the risk of sounding over-optimistic, it might even lead him/her on a path to some great invention. Let’s laugh and work for the future.
