Anyone use any tools to manage your child?

Hi dear mamas/papas!

I'm trying to understand what are some ways to manage DS homework but yet balance the study hours with other activities. How do you manage your child's education? Are there any tools that you currently use like making a personal timetable?

When you said tools I was thinking of hammers and screwdrivers :lol: .
How old are your kids? If they are old enough to have their own email accounts, you can get them to put in their key exam dates and study periods in Gmail's calendar which they can share with you. So this helps you to keep track of their schoolwork.

I didn't know what to make of it at all. :skeptical:

Was actually kinda petrified to click on this thread. :nailbite:

But yes, cane, belt, whip.. :evil: did come to mind. :oops:
In my time, those rubber hoses were also in trend. :scared:

And yes, visions of screwdrivers and hammers did float around too. :lol:

Later on after reading through perhaps thread starter is referring to Time Management skills? That parents or/and children can use? :idea:

Oh yes I do!

An electric drill to drill the multiplication table into them
A screw driver to drive mathematical concepts into kiddos
Sandpaper to smoothen the rough edges of their compo writing
A hammer to hammer home the importance of neat handwriting

When I saw this second line, I thought the verb is gonna be 'screw'.

I am using a cane, a rewards card and a study timetable (enforced from Monday to Friday) by me.

Excel spreadsheet for generic weekly time table that the kid never follows.
And pen and notepad for daily (holiday/exam time) revision schedule.
And table top calendar for exam time revision table.

unless secondary sch...9 subjects...maybe need a big table top calendar if doing weekly planning....that is if you are still planning for your kid at sec level.
