There could be times when you need to get your work done but your kids are done with their own assignments, making it difficult for you to concentrate. If you need something to help distract them so you can study, you might want to consider pulling up SesameStreet.org, where they can access a variety of educational games. Some of the options are the matching game Check Out Cookie, Alphabet Soup to work on spelling, Family Food to learn about nutrition and Egg Counting Elmo. Your kids will have fun while learning and you'll get the work time you need.

When you're trying to use the few hours in the evening to get homework done, make sure your kids completed their homework and get in some quality family time, the last thing you want to worry about is cooking a complicated meal. By visiting the Simply Recipes website, you can access their 'Quick Recipes' section, among other categories. You can also take advantage of their tips and tricks section and read their food blog for other useful information.

It can also help link you to other reliable sites.

Keep and Share

You're going to have a lot to keep track of between your school-related commitments and all of the activities your kids have going on. Keep and Share can help you stay organized. On their site you can access a calendar, type in information and have it available online to access from any computer or smartphone. You can set e-mail reminders, have the daily calendar sent to you and even share the calendar with others. If your kids are old enough, you can show them how to access the calendar so they can see what's going on and even add events as they come up.

Mind Tools

By visiting the Mind Tools website, you can find useful tips for time management, stress management and study skills, among other topics.

Parents can also turn some of their own coursework into home activities to do with their children.
