Have you created a dedicated work space for your children, a place where they can study, finish homework, and learn? If not, you may want to consider setting aside an area for them in order to promote a positive learning environment for them as they embark on a new school year!

With their own dedicated work space — away from distractions, such as the TV set or video games — your children can develop effective study habits to assist in their education for years to come.

 

Here are some tips to help you set up a space for your children to study, get good grades, and to overall promote the value of education.

For starters, develop a goal for the space with your child’s help. Get down on their level and see what they need from their vantage point. This space isn’t meant for you anyways! And let your child take some ownership in the way drawers on their desks are organized or what is placed on the desk top itself. Even let your child pick out their own piece of furniture when possible or put their work space in an area where they already gravitate in your home.

 

Make sure the area has enough lighting (natural or otherwise) for them to adequately learn. And also create the space in an area that they feel comfortable in; don’t give your child a work space in the attic or give your left-handed learner a space customized for right-handed children.
