Hello, I'm Dr. Deborah Wheeler. I am a clinical psychologist and the vice president of academic affairs at Argosy University in Salt Lake City. Today's topic is how to encourage good study habits for your children. One of the first things you're going to want to do is model those behaviors. If you have a work project, a church project, a community project, something that you need to study for, make sure you model those good behaviors for your kids as well. Secondly, make sure they have a quiet study area in the house separate and away from the activities of the rest of the household. Make sure that they've got plenty of supplies that they've got all the resources they need and that they're prepared to be able to set aside time. We get very busy in our households nowadays, lives are very complicated and families are running in all directions. Make sure your child is home in time to do their homework that they have plenty of time set aside and can focus on the work they need to do. Many schools provide homework for children and it takes quite a bit of time. Make sure your child has enough time, resources and the space to do the job well.
