It seems my bf and I have hit yet another snag, something we don't agree on as parents. Our daughter is only in pre-K, but she usually gets one or two homework assignments a week. I want her to learn to take them seriusly. But her dad puts off helping her, or forgets, and then says it's no big deal to get the assignments done on the morning before our daughter goes to school and hands them in. He says they're short and only take a few minutes, which is true right now. If I remind him sooner, I'm nagging. But isn't he teaching our daughter to procrastinate? If she can wait on homework now, why not later? If she can dash something off in a few minutes before school now, why not later?
I'm blind and can't see the coloring pages and letter tracing activities to help her with them. The assignments I can help with, I'm right there on board for. I wrote a letter with her to a relative in another city, helped her make a turkey collage, that kind of thing. But how can I get Daddy to see that his lax attitude about homework could cause trouble later on?
