we just had our meeting with the girls' teachers today. our oldest and middle children are having trouble in their classes. the problem is their homework. they do them but then they forget to take their backpacks, for some reason they take the papers out of their folders or they just forget to give the papers to the teachers. the homework is effecting their grades, they both got f's on their report cards because of missing papers. i make sure they put their papers in their folder and then in their backpacks. but somehow between bedtime and morning the papers had gotten out of their bags. anyone have any ideas how to help?
we can't think of anything. which is why i'm asking you.

Are they on an IEP by any chance? My son had this problem. I would make sure he had it in the morning, I would remind him to hand it in, but no, it never got there. Luckily, he was sped, so I called the sped teacher and said, please stand at the door to his English class, have him take out his homework, and watch him hand it in. This embarrassed him so much, he started handing it in on his own after a short time.
