RESEARCHERS SAY…

SLEEP:  Too many students are coming to school tired and sleepiness leads to slipping grades.  The best predictors of school failure was children’s fatigue.

 

SPACE:  A quiet, uninterrupted area where the child can focus.  Providing a designated space for homework sends a clear message, to the children in the home, that the expectation in our home is that school is important.  

SUPPLIES:  Should stay in the homework space so when your children go to study, everything they need is easily within their reach. 

STRUCTURE:  Sets the expectation in your home that you are about education and providing opportunities for success.  Family dinners are a form of structure that’s a powerful predictor of high achievement and lowering a host of risky teenage behaviors that parents fear such as smoking, drinking, drug use, and sexual activity.

SUPERVISION: Parents are present and involved in school related activities.  Children with structure and supervision thrive. 

SUPPORT:  Support and love is essential to a child’s development.
