Having Fun When Doing Homework

Homework can be hard work for everyone in the family. It can help make things easier to find a way to laugh with your child while doing it. Some parents I know play a quick game in between assignments, others have found ways to “play” with assignments by making them silly i.e. using a stuffed animal to offer help, responding to questions in reverse order, or talking in jibberish as an initial goofy answer to a challenging assignment. Anything to lighten up a tedious work load can help.
