My dd is 5 and just started kindergarten monday!! She had homework last night writing her numbers 1-10 and she rufusedto even try to do it!! She said its too hard I can't and I told her lexia you can do this you are smart girl!! Well anyways my husband and I tried every way possible to try to get her to do it and she just would not do it. We wound up sitting there for 5 hours trying to get her to do it and she still refused. So we sent a note with her to school telling her teacher what happened and if there was anything that she knows we might could try to please let us know and that she could call us and we could set up a meeting if we neede to!! But I Thought I would ask and see if any of you moms have any advice for me or maybe something we could try to get her to do it!!? If so it would be very appriecated !! Thanks!!

Since she has to do it make her go potty, then leave her at the table and tell her she is not getting down until it is done. DO NOT try to coax her. Homework is something that gets done like brushing your teeth and taking baths. It is not open for debate.
For every hour she takes to do this five minute assignment she looses an hour of TV time on Saturday. This "instant tradition" of not doing her homework will stop very quickly if you insist that she be responsible for her homework and she will do it or she will loose privileges. When she grad near the top of her class she will thank you and it would have been worth the effort now on your part.
