  • Talk to him and ask him why hes getting so discouraged, maybe he needs to burn off some energy when he first gets home, maybe he needs to do homework then get to play after that. Every child is diff, some need motivation. Try a quiet place in the house away from tv to do homework. Start a journalwith teacher, they write down assignments, you view and sign off each night until he can prove he'll do it on his own. Good luck!
