Organization of homework in children, the key to school success

The chores in the smallest they are a tool that has been discussed a lot. Are they necessary or not? Should there be any changes to the current model? Although this dialogue corresponds to the experts in education, what can not be denied is that the duties, like any other responsibility granted to the children, must be assumed by themselves and not carried out by the parents.

However the workload can be done uphill for the little ones and make the parents want to get involved in the realization of the chores. However, this is not the solution, the remedy is to teach children how to organize their time to get a moment for everything and complete all the responsibilities attached to school life.


Organization: the key to doing homework

From the platform Educrea It is indicated that it is not bad to get involved in the tasks of the youngest ones, but it is necessary to learn to do it without assuming these responsibilities. What is the best way to do it? Organization and supervision is the key to being able to provide the best help to children.

The first step is to explain to children from a young age how important it is to have a good organization. The planning of homework should be present from the first days of class, an assignment that must accompany a study method related to this this programming to obtain a good academic performance.


Parents can help by marking a Study Schedule daily, always taking into account the age of the child and the school year in which it is. This schedule must maintain the same time, and the importance of complying with this organization will be emphasized. If your obligations are completed before the agreed time, it will be reviewed for exams or read, until the end of this section of the day.

It is also recommended to establish a calendar where to mark exams or work to be delivered in order not to forget these important dates and another daily schedule where the daily task will be reflected, more in the short term and with more clarity. Priority will be given to other recreational activities, which must also be given a time as well as a break within the agreed study time.

Supervision: the task of parents

As has already been said, the second point to help the children in the fulfillment of their academic responsibilities is the supervision. You have to accompany and spend more time when the children are younger and then leave them alone, explaining that they are responsible for their school work.


Be available, if possible, to help them with more complex tasks or difficulties that can be presented. First of all, supervise that the established planning is being followed and a correct study technique is followed. Keep track of what has been learned and observe the persistent difficulties to discuss them with the teacher and perform an appropriate intervention.

It is important that parents focus and value more the constant effort, the small achievements and goals that are being overcome, to avoid the frustration and discouragement that ultimately lead to school failure. The attitude It must always be attitude must be positive and respectful, without overwhelming, scolding or harassing.
