Snippet of the day

How does one find time, with a full time job and all, to coach children in their school subjects? Could you indicate a do-able schedule?

Between husband and wife, it helps if both would share the load of coaching children. When my children were younger and needed our guidance for school work, my husband and I coordinated our work schedule such that at least one of us would be home early from work each day. On weekdays, we had after-dinner sit down time daily for about an hour to go through homework, prepare for spelling, tests etc. It was manageable when we set the right mood for studying by avoiding tension.  Some evenings when the children were not up to it, we would be flexible, by reducing study time or giving the children a break. It helps to have a bit of structure yet not be too rigid to adjust study time and subject focus. It is also important to make study time fun by being creative with teaching techniques.
