Tips and Tricks on How to Overcome the Challenges of Online Schooling

5 Tips on How to Overcome the Challenges of Online Schooling

Tip #1 

Routines and Schedules:

For some families, having a routine that has an expected schedule is very helpful. Children need routines in order to feel balanced and safe.

According to, “One of the most important things that you can do to make your child feel safe is to establish as much routine in his life as possible. Children (and adults) feel the most secure when their lives are predictable.”

When kids don’t have a routine, they experience more stress over their unpredictable future. Add that on top of the stress that we are all feeling these days over our unpredictable future and you can see why kids might act out when it comes to just about anything!

If you decide to implement a routine, it doesn’t have to be super structured and strict. It is fine to leave blocks of free time. The important thing is to make it as consistent as possible and communicate the new routine clearly to your children.


I have created a custom pdf schedule for grades to print out. This schedule will help your child stay on task. For each period/class, fill in the corresponding homework assignment for that day. Once complete, you can check it off. A great incentive is to provide a reward if they can stay on task and complete all assignments each week.

Tip #2

Setting up a Good Learning Environment 

A workspace in your home or office should be a place for you to think, organize, and accomplish the tasks before you. If you don’t have a dedicated office room, your workspace might be in your kitchen, bedroom, or a corner of the basement.

It's going to be difficult for you if your computer is set up in the living room and you're attempting to study or take tests while your family's watching TV. You need a dedicated study space where you won't be distracted. 

Whatever fills your day is part of your workspace. Here are 8 tips for a more organized workspace for whatever your job may be.

Steps to creating an Organized work space:

1.Location, location, location.

You want to have somewhere that you can organize yourself and your day without competing for space with meal prep, kids homework, or stacks of laundry.

You also don’t need a ton of space. A small corner in the kitchen, a small computer desk in the hallway or a simple table in the basement is enough. The point is not to have a huge office, but to have the right office in the right location.

2. Start with what is important.

Most workspaces need a few basic things to get started: a clean surface, a calendar, some pens, maybe a blank notebook and a trash can. A clock is also always helpful to keep near the workspace. Organize your supplies thoughtfully so your space doesn’t become a dumping ground for everything and everyone.

3. Store it elsewhere.

There will always be things you need to keep, but you don’t need on hand. Old assignments, toys,trash, clothes, last month’s stuff. You need these things, but they don’t need to take up valuable work space. If you have room for a file cabinet or bankers' boxes near your desk – great! If not, store these items elsewhere and you can grab them when you need them. If you don’t use it at least once a week, don’t store it within arm’s reach.

4.Surround yourself with what you love.

I always have chocolate in or near my workspace. I love it, I need it, and it helps me concentrate (try it, I promise it helps). I also have some of my favorite books, a cute picture of my kids, and a few of my favorite quotes. Surrounding your workspace with things you love brings peace, clarity, and makes it more comfortable to, well, work. Keep limits to what you store in your workspace. You don’t need to keep every moment you’ve ever received at your desk. Be choosy and be specific about what you love and what earns a spot at your table.

5. Think Vertical.

Most of us don’t have space for a 10-foot table that holds everything we may or may not need, but we do have at least 8-ft ceilings. Using shelves above small desk are a great way to add storage for those things we need within arms reach. If you don’t have drawers in your desk, you can use shelves for books, files, reference materials, office supplies, and more. Beautiful boxes or bins on shelves work great for storing small items, extra parts, cords, etc.

6. Go Digital.

Reduce your paper overall and use digital resources anywhere you can. Scan in your old documents instead of keeping endless file cabinets. Use paperless billing where possible, and be very rigid about which documents must be physical. Take advantage of the automated organization of the digital world to clear out and organize your office space.

7.ASAP Folder

Keep a folder, basket, or tray of ASAP items on the top of your workspace. These are things that need to be taken care of immediately, projects to finish, or things that are at the top of your to-do list. This is a great way to prioritize your daily tasks and keep piles of papers from stacking up on your desk. Empty out the ASAP folder once a week to make sure you stay on top of deadlines and requirements.

8. Sit Down.

This is particularly important for home offices. Too often, we use the kitchen counter for our home office because we don’t have anywhere else to work. That is false. You can find a corner, a hallway, a closet in nearly any home. You don’t need a lot of space, but it’s important to have an established area where you can sit down, think, and accomplish what is important.
