okay moms I need help please! I'm having a bad time getting two of my boys to do their homework they are in 6th and 4th grades. My 4th grader simply cries and refuses to do his work on his own says its too hard, and I can't figure out how to get them to sit down and read. I just want them to
1-bring their work home
2-do it without whining
3-and stop saying the teacher forgot to give me my work
My oldest claims the teacher forgets to give it too him,so I told him its his responsibilty to go and get his homework if his teacher forgot.
My 4th grader is slow in math and reading but he still needs to practice his x's tables and he needs to read so he can get better I alwasy tell my kids they can do it,and try to encourage them. They are already grounded till the end of december because of some things they did so I honestly am drawing a blank. I alwasy try to let them unwind when they get home from school snack time and a little play time,I've also made them do it when they got home from school. I'm really just wanting them to be more responsible and the teachers keep telling them that its not the parents job to keep reminding them to do their work and that we shouldnt have to sit their and beg them to do their work. What works for your kids especially the ones who struggle in school?
