Helping Children Develop Good Study Habits: A Parents' Guide.
Duckett, Jean C.
Even the most intelligent children can have low rates of achievement if their natural abilities are not supported by effective study practices at home. The development of good study habits requires the guidance and firm supervision of a caring adult. The following suggestions should help parents guide their children in the development of good study habits: (1) set a definite time for study each day--the study time should not be interrupted by after-school activities, should have both a starting and ending time, and should be planned with the child's attention span in mind; (2) provide a proper place for study away from household distractions, one with adequate light and a proper writing surface; (3) provide materials needed for completing assignments; (4) require the child to organize school materials including study notes, assignment sheets, and homework papers; (5) require the child to make a daily list of homework assignments; and (6) provide support and guidance when the child becomes discouraged or frustrated with a difficult homework assignment. In general, the earlier a regular pattern of dealing with homework assignments can be established, the easier it will be on both the parent and the child. (DC)
