• Frustrated with homework?  Help your child stay focused!

    1.  set the timer on the stove for 20 minutes
    2.  tell them to work diligently until the timer goes off
    3.  timer goes off, your child takes a 10 minute break!
     
       This 10 minute break needs to be a moving break.  Tell your child to run around the house, jump on the couch, take out the garbage, walk the dog....use your imagination!
    RESEARCH SAYS  Your Brain
     
    Sitting (which is what you have to do to do homework)  slows the body down to a relaxation feeling.  Every 20 minutes you need to get the blood pumping so that oxygen gets to the brain so that thinking is easier!
