Back to school: Homework help made easy!


Back to school is fast approaching, for the kids, but also for the parents! Our little ones feel the excitement rising with all these preparations. It is not easy for them to find the concentration necessary for their school work. If at least we could manage the dreaded homework period more easily!

Vie de Parents understands your concerns and recommends educational games and accessories from Brault & Bouthillier, designed to simplify homework help. "At the end of the afternoon, the kiddies are excited. After a snack, they’ll calm down and you can get to work with tools that give them confidence and promote a good atmosphere", says Élise, co-founder of Vie de Parents.


Facilitate lessons and homework

Brault & Bouthillier has effective products for the learning of mathematics and French in its backpack, as well as tools to help with concentration and promote calm, in addition to offering high-performance school supplies.


For mathematics, Vie de Parents likes:

Other favourites from Vie de Parents

To learn in the best conditions, our kiddies need a quiet environment, without auditory distractions. Fun educational tools exist, like the famous échelle du bruit, a true favourite. It is a pretty, laminated poster with Velcro on which one moves a red arrow according to the noise level. Very convenient for intense moments!

Vie de Parents has also tested a nice accessory for homework help: the Time Timer, a small timer that promotes autonomy from the age of 3, by facilitating the understanding of the time that passes. He is the best friend at homework time: depending on the interval chosen, a disc decreases over the minutes and disappears when the time has elapsed.

Our favorite learning accessory: the slant board, which facilitates concentration for reading and writing. The big advantage: no more neck tension or poor posture, because the slant board helps children develop good work habits!

Concentration and Special Needs

At the end of the day, children really need calm. Parents all know how difficult the “4 to7” can be. At Brault & Bouthillier, you will find many products to soothe children and help them concentrate: Hush Buddies, the noise-cancelling ear muffs which mask the surrounding noises, or well-made games like the famous Pop it, which promotes relaxation: Two players start pushing bubbles and the one who pushed the last one loses. Hours of fun and relaxation with such simple tools, it’s great! And to relieve tensions, our little darlings will be able to twist around the Tangle, whose manipulation also promotes dexterity and concentration.
