Homework tips for parents and students

Provided By:

(NC)-Good homework skills are essential to a student's success, and that includes you too, mom and dad. Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation, Canada's oldest and largest provider of Registered Education Savings Plans, offers the following tips to help parents and students with homework and studying.

Parents

1. Make sure your child knows the importance of homework and that they can always come to you for help.

2. Try not to take over your child's projects - make sure they are still engaged when you are helping with their work.

3. Look for alternative ways to encourage your child to study and complete homework by creating fun activities around learning.

4. Lead by example - avoid distractions while helping your child with their homework (no phone calls or television).

5. Use positive reinforcement to encourage your child when they get frustrated, and be quick to acknowledge a job well done to help keep them on the right track.

Students

1. Prioritize your work to avoid feeling overwhelmed when tackling your tasks.

2. Make notes as you read to help retain what you are studying.

3. Take short, frequent breaks during long study sessions to help relax and maintain your focus. If needed, switch to another subject to keep your mind alert.

4. When taking a study break, avoid watching television or listening to music - go for a short walk or get some fresh air

5. Avoid distractions such as phone calls while you are studying.

6. Don't be afraid to ask questions or look for help from your parents or teacher.

7. Create a study group to generate new ideas and learn from your peers.

8. Eat a well-balanced meal or snack. Try avoiding foods that are high in sugar as they make your blood-sugar levels peak and then quickly crash.

9. Use your time wisely and give yourself enough time to submit the quality of work of which you're capable!

Developing good study habits will go a long way in preparing for post-secondary education, but financial preparation is also important. You can go online at www.educateyourchildren.ca to learn more about how to best prepare for sending your child to university or college.
