Homework

 I hope I am not the only parent whose teenager has an issue turning in her school work.  She gets the work done, and then can't seem to turn it in on time.  When I check her progress report it shows a big fat 0.  I am a lot annoyed!

Zero's are not tolerated here.  One is allowed per semester.  After that she doesn't go anywhere or have the cellphone or computer for 2 weeks.  Its just not tolerated and yep, I would be very annoyed.  Zero's hurt grades SO much.  TOO much.

Right?!?!

I work in a high school and it seems to be a trend that I can not for the life of my comprehend, neither can most of the teachers. Even if the work isn't totally completed and a teacher is willing to give points for what they turn in, the students choose to take a zero.

My dd went through periods of this. I would tell her all the time 2/5 points is better than a zero.

I have the same issue with my son. It doesn't help that he has ADHD and needs constant reminders.

My son was terrible at turning in completed homework - I fixed a binder with a 2-pocket folder in it for each class - the pocket on the left was for any permission slips, papers and assignments that had to come home, and the right pocket was for anthing that had to be returned to school - signed permission slips, notes, and completed homework. It worked great once he got use to carrying it to each class with him.

No, but this year Austin is in football so he has to have it done, and Paige is keeping up with it so far.

This is the first year so far that they are honestly making the time to do it.
