Every freaking day homnework involves fighting, crying, punishments. DD will not do it. When i tell her to do homwork, she'll just sit there. She'll say she's tired, or hungry. She asks me for help, but when i help her she says rudely "i know, i know, i know" well...why did you ask me for help then? When i explain to her how to do something, she doesn't listen...then tells me 5 minutes later she doesn't know how to do it. Her last problem was "how many minutes is between 2:10 & 4:50. We've been working on this problem for 1 hour. She is now in her room crying, she is being punished...again. She gets upset with me because i refuse to help her, but when i help her she will not listen to me. She refuses to use her brain, she just goes blank & won't think about it. I'm over it! I'm about to start breaking things! every day is wonderful until it's time for homework. I'm about to say screw homework alltohether!Answer Question

I've felt that way. I feel your pain. Homework shouldn't be like that. If your daughter is having a hard time focusing she may have ADHD or some sort of learning problem that might need a different approach. If that's not the case then a different approach still might help you deal with it. If you are really at the end of your rope and you are open to trying something different check out the Love & Logic CD called "Winning the Homework Battle". I listen to that when I don't know what else to do. I hope it gets better for you. GL!
