Having kids and being very organized may not usually go together, but sometimes a good system is all you need to keep things running smoothly. Handling the homework situation can be a chore in itself, especially when you need to accommodate more than one child and perhaps mom and dad too. A dining or kitchen table is usually where most kids end up when trying to do their homework. Pens, pencils and paper strewn everywhere. Arguments and sometimes tears ensue. Parents trying to help while doing the dishes. Panic at looming deadlines and the distraction of the TV in the next room. Sound familiar?
Every child should have a quiet, calm and undisturbed location for studying. Don’t worry. This doesn’t mean you have to clean out the spare room or buy a shed. Kids don’t require much space as long as it is away from the hullabaloo and disturbance of everyday life, have good light, comfortable seating, and enough room to spread out.
Don’t know where to start? We’ve got it covered. In this infographic we’ll show you some important points to consider as you plan, design and create the perfect space for your child to do their homework.
We’ll offer alternative solutions for those all important decisions and we’ll show you just why having this space is important for both you and your child. Soon you’ll know exactly how to give your child the perfect homework station.
