Ideas to Help Improve the Study Environment

Setting aside time for studying and homework is not only essential for school, but it helps a child develop a routine and responsibility. Here are some tips to helping improve the study environment for your student:

  • Create an environment that is conducive to doing homework. Youngsters need a permanent work space in their bedroom or another part of the home that offers privacy.
  • Soft lamps with incandescent light bulbs are easier on the eyes.
  • Set aside ample time for homework, but be sure to encourage breaks to help information absorb. See below.
  • Establish a household rule that the TV set stays off during homework time.
  • Be available to answer questions and offer assistance, but never do a child's homework for them.
  • To help alleviate eye fatigue, neck fatigue and overall exhaustion while studying, it's recommended that youngsters close the books for 10 minutes every hour and go do something else.
  • If your child is struggling with a particular subject, and you aren't able to help, a tutor can be a good solution. Talk it over with your child's teacher first.
