My ten year old daughter keeps on not turning in her homework. She doesn't write the assignment down in her book and she just tells me she has already done it. Got an e-mail from her teacher saying she missed 3 homework assignments from last week. This has been going on for about a month or so. She starts doing good enough for me to unground her and then does this again. What else do I do. I have grounded her, took everything away. what is lef?

Instead of going over board punishing bad behavior, try rewarding good behavior - this tends to be more effective.
Also make her show you the homework she says is done. If she can't then you know she hasn't done it yet.

"We coordinated with the teacher. The teacher had to sign the assignment book after DD wrote down the assignment" <-- I know a lot of parents that had to do this... seemed to work well. If the teacher won't work with you on this I'd go to the principal too!!

Sigh. The ten year old and the homework saga.I feel your pain! Just want to give you a big hug. My best advice...is to talk to the teacher and get her advice on it.
