Are you sick of your dining room table being cluttered with papers? A designated schoolwork space benefits the parents as well as the children. It can turn a place of homework struggles into a happy homework haven. If possible, create your space in a place where your kids already gravitate to. Go with the flow and think long term. You'll want a space you can update as your children grow older and study needs change. A monotone environment is less likely to encourage creativity and stimulate the thinking process. Be creative & use color!
