5 Kid-Friendly Study Areas

Cut Down the Commotion

Organize the study area to be in a corner, facing a wall with no outside view to minimize distractions. To minimize interruptions, position the study area away from high traffic parts of the house, like the kitchen. Make sure the study area doesn't have a television, stereo or other distractions that could interfere with concentration. Also, prohibit snacking in the study area to set the proper tone for homework.
