Try going in your room or a quiet place to do you homework

Establish a work area for yourself that's away from these sources of distraction. Work in your room with the door closed if possible. Playing the radio softly to drown out outside noise can be helpful as long as the radio itself does not become a distraction.

Ask your mother to help you. Tell her just how important it is to you to do your schoolwork in a timely and accurate way. Explain to her that the distractions your sister creates are interfering with your goals. And also tell her, politely, quietly, and respectfully, but firmly, that her demands also get in the way. Ask her if you may have a set time, every day, which can be set aside for you to have the peace and quiet you need to complete your homework. Ask that, during that time, NO-ONE is allowed to interrupt you, unless it's a "matter of life and death", so-to-speak.

keep anything that can distract you out of the room or go to a different room
