My two daughters (ages 6 and 7) do their homework mostly with no problems - unless they are tired, then there is a little bit of whining, but nothing unmanageable.
My 12yr old 7th grader stepson is another story. While we are able to get him to do his homework when he is with us (we use TV and vid games as currency), his single mother claims "I can't make him do his homework", and then lets him play violent video games until midnight or later on school nights.
So, I was curious - how old are your kids, what is the homework routine in your house, how do you handle "I don't want to" or "I can't do it" situations?

My son is seven. He comes home, has a snack and we jump on the homework. It's not up for debate.
