After School Care

Who has the children after school and before you get home? Can they not start on their homework before you get home with this care giver and then have you follow-up when you get home? This works great for my granddaughters, they have all their homework done before their mom gets home from work. They are excellent readers now...they have had to read books twice their entire lives. Once to me then again to their mom while she prepared dinner. Then while they bathe you can go through their planners/homework and discuss it with them after they finish.
Children need a structured learning time, they need to be taught that the time for homework is a set time and have a set place for it. Right after school and at a certain place is best. That way they will be more inclined to get it done in a timely manner and get it done correctly so they can go play.
