It is very important set aside a place for you or your kids to do work. Keep needed supplies stocked in this workstation so they are easily accessible and you don‘t waste twenty minutes searching for a blue pen because this teacher insists all work is done in blue pen. If a specified desk or “office” is not available, try creating a toolbox. Stock it with the supplies you will need to work in the common areas of your home. Then just pull it out when you need to work and put it away in its designated home when finished.
