Practical Principle: Homework

Young person reports doing at least one hour of homework every school day.

Guiding Growths

  • In the era of COVID-19 all schoolwork is “homework.” Take this opportunity to promote learning in a different way. Give your child(ren) non-school assignments like riding their bike for an hour, 30 minutes of video games, or working together on a family project to ensure they’re not feeling overwhelmed by academic expectations.
  • Set strong guidelines for the completion of homework. Outline times of the day dedicated specifically to school-based assignments, but give your child(ren) equal amounts of time for non-school activities to help them achieve balance in their day.
