Get into a routine of doing homework at a set time, ideally a little each day.
Have a set place where the kids can do their homework, with the equipment they’ll need:
pens and pencils
computer and internet access
Turn mobiles to aeroplane mode or off so there are no disruptions.
If there’s no set homework, encourage your child to do some reading. For younger children, it’s great for them to read aloud to you. For older kids, ask them to tell you about what they have been reading.
Don’t jump in and give answers. Homework is about helping kids become independent learners.
Encourage your child to start assignments as soon as they receive them – this will reduce any night-before stress.
Your child needs to do their own projects and assignments. There’s no point submitting work done by anyone other than the student. Teachers need to know what students can do independently.
If your child is having difficulty with their homework, contact their class teacher for help.
