Focusing on Schoolwork

Tired of your kid's schoolwork taking over the weekend because she has trouble focusing for more than 20 minutes at a time?

Here's an easy solution: Make an appointment. Tell her exactly when you're available to help -- from 11:00 to noon, say, or 4:00 to 5:00. Knowing you're available only during those hours will give her day some structure -- and may help her concentrate on the work long enough to finish it.

Another bonus: You won't have to nag the rest of the weekend away.
