Another free Study Tip Homework comes before TV or play for my kids. I do let them watch tv or play outside for an hour when they get home from school, but then it's schoolwork time. They are used to this and it works - they get good grades. Oh - they're in fourth and sixth grade.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Focus on something. Set a goal and achieve it. Set a goal that is higher than where you are now. The goal should be clear and flexible. As always, "There's no royal way to success."
