It's that time of year! You'll soon be packing your family's bags and headed off on your spring break vacation. But what if your kiddos have schoolwork they have to complete during your vacay? Never fear. Thanks to Brainly, we're here to tell you what to do if your kids have to study on spring break.

We all know that fun is the main focus for our kids, and us parents, frankly, when we're on vacation. That being said, some children will inevitably have some studying that they need to do during break and it's our job to help them get through it as seamlessly as possible so we can all get back to the business of having FUN!

How to Help Your Kids with Schoolwork on Spring Break

1. If possible, plan your trip to start one day later than when Spring Break starts, so that they can finish their work early and not have it looming overhead throughout the whole trip.

2. While on your trip, plan an activity that your child wouldn’t enjoy doing for you and your spouse/other children to do while they study. This gives them the peace, quiet and time they need to get their schoolwork done without making them feel like they’re missing out.

3. Don’t make a big deal about it. They may be griping about having to do schoolwork, but you joining in on the complaining might make them feel even worse.

4. Reward them when they’re done – tell them that once they finish their work, they’ll be able to choose the restaurant or activity. Gives them something to look forward to and an incentive to finish with plenty of time.
