New Thoughts from Your Child

You know, Mom, I sit in a chair all day at school.  Do I have to sit down to do my homework?

Suggestions to Mom

If writing legibility does not fall apart, allow your child to stand at the table to do homework.

Have you tried allowing your child to lie on his stomach, propped on his arms on the floor to do his work?

Sitting in a bean bag chair for reading work can be very calming

If good handwriting is required, make sure the desk or table top is two inches above his bent elbow while sitting down in the chair.  Make sure your child sits in a chair which allows his feet to be flat on the floor.  This is important for good writing posture and good hand movement. It can be hard to do your best writing perched on a bar stool!
