My DD is 12, and in 6th grade. All school year, she has had problems with remembering to turn in work. I sit with her every night to make sure all her homework is completed, but then she doesn't turn it in, and it just sits in her binder....She has the same problem with classwork. I have spoken with her teachers, and they said that it is not their responsibility to remind students to turn stuff in. They said sixth graders are being prepared for high school therefore they are expected to be independent in turning everything in. Well now DD is failing the year, and we recieved a letter letting us know she will probably be held back. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do to help her do better with this? DH and I already remind her every morning as she's getting on the bus, and I check through her binder when she gets home. We even set up an allowance program where she gets money for remembering to turn in and complete all her work, and she still comes home every day with at least 1 assignment not turned in..I'm frustrated all around and don't know what else to do.
