Creating a Happy Homework Space

Homework is one of our biggest struggles growing up and it doesn’t end when you become a parent.  Even in Kindergarten our children are given endless amounts of homework to help sharpen their young minds.  The work may or may not be tough for them, but getting them to be self-motivated is one of our biggest struggles as a parent.  Creating a happy homework space might just give them a little boost, though.

This article is part of a sponsored collaboration.  As always, all opinions are my own.

Personally, when my home office is a mess, my mind is a mess.  If my desk isn’t tidy, I feel overwhelmed and can’t fully focus on my work.  If I don’t have the proper materials needed to do my work, if my workspace is uncomfortable or the lighting isn’t right, things just aren’t going to get done.  I notice the same little things with my kindergartener, as well.

My daughter is given a packet of homework each week and is encouraged to work on it daily.  Most of the time she sits at the dining table while I’m cleaning up dinner and struggles to get anything done with all of the distractions — television, her sister asking to color on her homework, the racket from the dishes, etc.  Needless to say, creating a “happy” homework space was at the top of my to-do list.

Believe it or not, the motivation for creating a child-friendly office space came from a chair.  This chair is special, though.  It’s a desk chair made for kids and is more ergonomically designed for their little bodies.  Along with a comfy chair, I added some cute kid-friendly decor and books to her desk.

 

 

 

This children’s desk chair is anything but your average rolling chair.  It features a fully cushioned back support and many adjustable options for kids.  Not only can you move the chair up and down, you can also slide the seat cushion forward and backwards for a better fit.

Features

  • Ergonomic cushioned back support
  • Thick padded slidable seat depth adjustable to 1.7 inches front and back with locking mechanism
  • Height adjustable from 16.7 to 19.6 inches with silent gas lift cylinder and full 360° swivel
  • Detachable footrest and rounded armrest for added support and comfort
  • Urethane wheels with attachable wheel covers for protection and movement lock
My daughter is on the smaller side for her age, so finding a desk chair that is able to adjust to her size is so nice.  The detachable footrest has been a big help to keep her from moving the chair as she’s working on her homework.
We decided to go with a grey chair since we have a lot of colors in my daughter’s room, but this chair does come in many other colors.  You can view the entire collection of SitRite chairs on Amazon here.
