Tips for Domestic Helpers: How to Get Children To Do Their Homework?

Parents around the world would love the magic formula to encourage kids to do their homework. At the same time, it's not as simple as waving a wand. In order to make your employer happy, here are some methods for encouraging your kids to develop and stick to a regular homework routine.

As the kid’s guardian, you need to make them feel that it is important by taking an active interest in their homework. Effective encouragement will also be about changing your own approach to homework enforcement. Don't worry, it's easy, it's just about taking a moment to work it through. There are 3 simple tips to make the process less painful for you and for the kids.

  • Set-up a friendly area.
    You have to make sure that the workspace is well-lit, comfortable, and free from distractions such as TV, mobile phones, or family members. If you will be needing an internet for his schoolwork, try to consider parental controls which is available through your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • Schedule a daily study time. Make the kid decides.
    Make a schedule for completing homework. Creating a routine will help children know what to expect. You may want to allow them to have a break between the time that school ends and the time they need to start their homework. For example, allow them to spend one hour doing activities of their choice after school before doing homework.
    Allow the kids to have a say in creating the schedule. If they feel like their opinions have been heard and considered, they’re more likely to stick to the plan. Agree on homework-free times, such as Friday nights or one weekend day, and allow them to plan how they use this free time.
  • Be the kid’s motivator. Monitor him, not control him.
    Children are motivated, they just may not be motivated the way some parents like them to be. Be there for the kid. Give him encouragement, check completed homework, and as a helper, make yourself available for the questions and concerns. The child will develop confidence and a love of learning from doing it themselves.
  • Be a good model
    Be a good example by showing your own love of learning. You can help the kid understand that building knowledge is something to enjoy throughout life. Talk to your kids about the importance of homework, and how a good education can benefit them throughout their lives. Explain to them that as an adult, you make more money if you have more education. Ask them what careers they’d be interested in, and explain the type of education necessary for each. Encourage effort and determination, not just the grades they get.
How to Help Your Helper Fight Depression?

While we all feel sad, moody, or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely for long periods of time and sometimes without any apparent reason. Depression is more than just a low mood. It is a serious mood disorder that negatively affects how you feel, think and act. If your helper struggles with depression, you know how hard it can be and you might even wonder what you can do in order to help her. Your support and encouragement can play an important role in her recovery.

You are already a great person if you want to be there for your depressed helper. But even when you have a really good intention, it can be really hard to know exactly what help you can give to her. Every individual is different on how they handle depression, but here are a few guidelines that can help you support your helper in their recovery while maintaining your own emotional equilibrium.

  1. Be informed about what depression really is. There are countless articles on the internet today where you can learn about depression and its symptoms. You may not be able to cure your helper but you can understand her condition by educating yourself and what kind of mood disorder she has.
  2. Be there for your helper. Always remember that being compassionate listener is much more important than giving an advice. If she feels like talking, ask her how she was going. Encourage your helper to talk about her feelings and be willing to listen without judgment. Being supportive as her employer involves encouragement and hope.
  3. Put yourself in your helper’s shoes. It is impossible for a depressed person to just “forget about it” or “cheer up”. Stress is a significant contributor to depression. You need to identify the sources of stress in her life and help her brainstorm about ways to reduce it.
  4. You need to remind your helper that they’re incredibly strong and worthy to love. Let them know that it’s their illness you’re frustrated with, not them. If you feel like you can’t control your helper’s recovery, you can encourage them to seek help by suggesting a doctor or therapist that can help them through the process.
  5. Depression is contagious. It can be incredibly frustrating and upsetting to deal with someone who is experiencing it. You can only support your helper if you know how to look after yourself first. To avoid resentment, learn how to set limits on what you are willing and able to do. You are not your helper’s therapist, so don’t take that as your responsibility.

If you think that your helper might be considering suicide, talk to them about your concerns as soon as possible. Often people feel uncomfortable bringing up the topic but it is one of the best things you can do for someone who is thinking about killing themselves. Talking openly about it can save your helper’s life. Attention is the most important thing we ever give to each other, especially if it’s given from the bottom of our heart. Caring is more important than understanding.
