Homework can be the bane of both kids’ and their parent’s existence. Just follow parental tweets around 5pm everyday and you’ll see what I mean. One way to lighten the mood and tension level when 3rd grade math has got everyone in a tizzy is to STOP, HOP and ROLL! In other words…take a play break! Even 10-15 minutes of PLAY like a round of freeze dance or dribbling a ball can reduce stress, calm everyone down, boost moods and get your child (and you), ready to get back to it again.
