My SD (8yr) has come home in the past month or so with 3 F's. I know that isn't a lot, but her Daddy and I feel that there need to be consequences. She is smart. She should be able to do better. The F she brought home today was over her old spelling words. I thought that it might be a good time to start reviewing old spelling words with her daily. She should be able to spell them since she has already taken tests on them. I told her BM that I would probably do this and she doesn't like the idea. She feels that she already has enough homework. She does have quite a bit of homework. It takes us between 30 minutes and an hour to finish it normally (I do all the homework with her). I told her that I would never take more than an hour. So, say homework took 45 minutes, then we wouldnt review any longer than 15 minutes.
What do you think? Shouldn't we do whatever we can to help her improve in areas that she struggles?

My daughter brough home 3 F's in a month before as well, there were consequences. She had got several before then too. She is VERY smart but she gets lazy and she rushes to get her tests done at school. I grounded her and she has gotten maybe 2 F's since then total.
She turns in her papers late all the time, work she does at school. Her teacher still counts what grade she gets and my daughter doesn't see a big deal turning her work in on time. She needs to get a zero once and she will knock it off. She is only 8 as well.
