Ask Dr. Blank: What are the top 5 ways to get kids to do their homework?

1. Establish a set time each day for homework.

2. Have a quiet area set aside where there is no access to computer, phone, iPad, etc.

3. Stay nearby and be available in case your child needs some guidance & freely offer it if needed.

4. If your child achieves reasonable accuracy (i.e., 80% or higher), further corrections are not required.

5. But if the work is has too many errors (i.e., 20% or higher), have your child repeat it.
