Take Schoolwork Seriously

Updated on October 19, 2014

Where is the best place to do homework?

This is exactly the way I did my homework. At the kitchen table while mum was busy at the stove. I felt secure and to be honest - it was good for me because I had to be diligent. I liked to play and read novels. This way, I became educated.

My own chldren had their own room when they went to school. They still made much of the schoolwork at the kitchen table because then I could help and guide. The school lessons were more and more covering everything and homework was less and less. In Sweden we do not have "home schooling". At least not yet.

My grandchild has a corner of her own. She can be there and nothing can be smarter. She has her own territory. I think she even has a TV in there under the bed =)

A corner of your own - Do not distrub me when I am working

This is creating the corner that is private for the student. The bed is not in the way for the schoolwork, but provide a sense of shelter. Look how they put the window to ther right so the daylight can help the young writer.

To build a study space for the child can be done a little at the time. But there are many ready made workstations like this also.

Do it yourself!

Loft bed with ladder

If you buy just the basic bed with lader, you can put what ever furniture you want under it.

Buy ready made or make them yourself. Many of us have already a desk, chair and small dresser to use. Paint in the color you want and here is the ready little study corner.

See to it that the light is coming from the right side. A left handed child needs it from the right and a right handed writer wants the light from the left.

Poll about study habits

Not all have the place or interest to make a corner for the child to study in.

Do you think it is important to have a place for studies?

You can also buy a matching higher dresser and put at the feet of the lower bed. Used for clothes and the personal stuff we all want to keep close to us!

Bunk bed with desk under

Black or white

On both Amazon and IKEA there are many writing bed/desks in so many colors. White is probably not the one I would choose, but you may be?

They can be made of steel or wood. Some even has the posibility to put an extra bed there instead of the desk. You can then have one desk on each side for school work.

A computer is the tool of our times - But can be very dangerous used in the wrong way

In the schools in Sweden all children use computers. Many also have one at home. They are trained from small ages to search for facts and answers on the internet or education programs.

To superwise the use is a must. There is so much garbage out there. Code the webbrowser with parental lock! What our children cannot watch, we should not either! Right?

This laptop is strong enough for both studies and games

Are you internet aware?

The risk for your children to watch sites and pages on the internet with XXX content is really high.

Do you think it is important to safe guard your child from this?

Internet and children - how do you do?

Can you study if you are listening to music? - Yes - the right kind can even help the concentration!

It is scientifically proven that you study better when there is soft Baroque music playing. The beat is the same as the relaxed heartbeat. I know this sounds unbelievable but it is true. So when the children want to have music on, they say I can study better - they might be right.

Just use discernment. Baroque is not always the first choice but there is lots of good music with almost the same beat - right?

Have your say here:

      My granddaughter has her own little table for her workbooks and does work so diligently and is just starting 1st grade. I've heard that Motzart is god for the brain, that must have to do with the heart rate as you mention.

      Thank you so much. I feel honored by your tribute. :)I believe that having a bunk bed can be a delightful place for a child to study, read, write, play and imagine. As a child, my sister and I often turned our bunk bed into a castle, a magic carpet or just a secret place where magic took place. All of these activities are learning experiences which can be encouraged by giving your child a bunk bed.

      I like for a child to have their own desk where they can work on school assignments. This gives them a place to focus and as you say, "get serious" about their work.

      I agree with your conclusions, children need certain constraints when growing up to get all of the knowledge they may gather. Very well done, great lens. See you around the galaxy...

      A good place to do your homework is essential, and a set time. Love those beds with a desk under.
