Yep, it's another to do. I know there will be some of you who this doesn't relate to, but I also know there are many who have kids or go to school themselves (or both).
Homework Honestly Hasn't Happened Happily Here
Whether it's homework for you, your kids, or both-homework can be a challenge to knock off of the to do. Even my five year old hates doing homework. Some things that help get it done.
Homework is best tackled right after school (maybe right after school, after snack-I know my kids are starving when they get home), when there hasn't been time to get out of school-mode and into I'm-at-home-and-want-to-do-anything-that-doesn't-involve-school-mode. Plus, if you do homework right when you get home, it's done and out of the way and you get the remainder of the evening to do whatever.
Another thing that works is finding ways to make it fun. Find something around the house to incorporate into the homework process.
Finally, if you have kids (or even nieces or nephews that your helping do homework), make sure you at least appear to be enjoying the homework. If kids see adults looking like they despise doing the work, they will despise it too. I have always been that kid who thinks homework is fun all the time, but I know there are a lot of people who don't think so.
BTW-finding ways to make it fun AND tackling homework immediately is directed at the adults who are in school as well. It's easy to get caught up in the relief that you're at home and done with your school day, but your 'home time' is much more relaxing if your 'homework time' is out of the way.
Happy, um-Homeworking? :)
