Developing Good Homework and Study Habits 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 is quiet, without distractions, and promotes study. Schedule ample time for homework. Establish a household rule that the TV set stays off during homework time. Supervise computer and Internet use. Be available to answer questions and offer assistance, but never do a child's homework for her. Take steps to help alleviate eye fatigue, neck fatigue and brain fatigue while studying. It may be helpful to close the books for a few minutes, stretch, and take a break periodically when it will not be too disruptive. If your child is struggling with a particular subject, and you aren't able to help her yourself, a tutor can be a good solution. Talk it over with your child's teacher first. Some children need help organizing their homework.  Checklists, timers, and parental supervision can help  overcome homework problems.
