  • Talk to her about how she is feeling. Get her help if she needs it. This could be signs of a very stressful situation.

  • Maybe she's not understanding it.

  • It could be stress from the homework or a nervous reaction. See if she needs help or is feeling like she can't keep up.

  • My daughter did that. I told her to stop or her hair would break and she didn't believe me. The hairdresser told her that she would have a bald spot and she finally quit. I do it too. It is a nervous habit.

  • Sounds like stress to me. Why not do homework together and make it fun. I help my 10 yr old everyday and if he doesn't need help I still sit with him in case he has questions. So make a homework date with her if possible or tutoring.
