Without getting upset at them I had my dd write down a paragraph for me just any paragraph and some how down the line she lost her place and continue to write it made me mad bc I felt like she is copying and not really absorbing what she is writting so I had her do it again she threw a fit and starts to cry and cry I had to slightly raise my voice to her she just kept crying I tell her to go her room she does not want to I don't know what else to do where am I going wrong? :(
sometimes I feel like she might be crazy in her own way :/ the dumb stuff she does...aarrgg!!!

This is why I send my child to a school that does not give homework in the traditional sense. But I always suggest to other parents to break it up. Let a child come home, snack, set the timer to play for about 40 minutes, and then work on part of the homework. Then if there is more... have dinner, do more or the rest, play, and bedtime routine. Sometimes homework is too overwhelming. Setting a timer for 10 minute increments and having them work for 10 play for 20 and keep that up. Also examining how much homework your child is getting. Children with learning difficulties may need only five math problems representing the lesson instead of 20. Children living with ADHD also may need less problems because it is more like torture. Homework should only be to reinforce a lesson learned. Anything more than that is torture for any child.
