Jill from Atlanta had a wonderful idea: while I get back on my feet posting-wise, how about a little open discussion about homework tips? Most of us are likely in the grace period before the big-time assignments, so let's talk about ideas for getting off to a good start.
Where and when does your child do homework? Right after school at the kitchen table? After a snack at a desk? Before bed? Early morning? What combo seems to work for you?
Any tips for keeping the homework area stocked and organized?
Do you do homework with your child, or are you only available as an as-needed resource? I never recall asking my parents for homework help, but it seems that it's a family affair these days, and I'm not sure why. (We're still homework newbies around here.)
All other ideas welcome!
