Getting kids to do their homework is a task and half already. One way to improving your chances to get them to sit down and work is to make a productive space that they love and enjoy being in. These days’ kids have dozens of excuses not to do things. It’s not like it was any different in the past when technological distractions weren’t available. Nowadays, a screen is not too far away, and distracting content can be straightforward to indulge in. An adequate space can remedy procrastination to find constructive thoughts and use those thoughts to work.
A study area in the bedroom is a good idea, but an even better idea is getting them a whole room worth workspace if possible. It’s easier to work in a place that is designated for work specifically. The ideas we discuss today can also be tweaked a little here and there to make a workspace for adults. So take these ideas with a grain of salt!
1. Find the Perfect Spot
The perfect spot could mean anything like a nice view from a window, next to a plant, or even a convenient spot where you can reach everything you need. As mentioned above, a separate room designated for work is an excellent idea if possible. You can furnish that room with a study table, bookshelves, chairs, and whatnot. A few must-haves in a study room are minimum distractions, toms of natural light, and air circulation. These things set an excellent precedent for the headspace required for work.
2. Customize the Space in their Liking
The best way to make a space feel personal is to customize it according to your personality, fill it up with accessories, décor, and tokens of your own life. You can try making the room into the theme of their favorite comic book or cartoon characters for kids. Or you could make it a room filled with items that remind them to study and focus on education, things like a globe, wall clock, decorations of compasses, etc.
3. Use the Space Wisely
If you manage to get a whole room for this, it is important to use every bit of space there wisely. Use wallpaper or paint for the walls and turn them into a part of the decoration. You could hang certificates or significant news clippings, anything that has some reverence with the kid’s life. You should invest in a lovely study table because that would increase productivity manifold.
