Ok so my daughter is having a hard time with her school work. she is only in the first grade and last year she done great I don't understand what the problem is?? She is a smart girl it is so frustrating that when she gets Homework she sits there and acts like she is as dum as a ran over rat. I love her but this crap with her Homework is ripping us apart. Please if there is anyone with some advice please I am open at this point. I don't want My daughter to have to stress over Homework and I don't want our relationship on the the rocks. I love my little girl I just don't know what else to do?

Try to figure out what the problem is. Maybe she really doesn't understand what she has to do my daughter is in pre k and when they get homework she gets sad or down on herself because of her penmanship.

Keep trying with her. Also, she may not like her class. Look into that. Could be a student issue.

Be calm and patient and try to just stay posotive about it. Don't freak out on her. You might need to sit down and talk with her teacher about it if you havent already that way yall can figure something out and whats goin on with her. Thats a good way to start. Don't beat yourself up over it. Hugs ;)

Have you talked to her teacher? Is it that she just doesn't understand the homework or do you think shes just acting like she doesn't?

Can she do the work in school?  Is she just tired when she gets home?  My youngest is also in first grade and will know his math homework.  I will sit with him and he will whine that he doesn't know what to do.  It's because he is tired.

Yes that is how she has been doing me! Mom I don't know how to do it? When I know she can it makes me so mad. I have to help her and her sister with Homework and its just so stressful with both of them coming at me. Her sister is just in kindergarten.but I did talk to her dad lastnight and he promised to help me with her.I am going to focus on one and he can help with my other daughter. Yay!!! I think I just had to take a step back and breathe. I got her report card well progress report and she was falling everything ! :'( she has never went to a pre k I was always a sahm. I can't work cause I have seizures and no driving till I make it a whole year without one. But anyways please wish us luck. Maybe this will help

why is your relationship with your daughter on the rocks because she's struggling with homework? That comment seems very odd to me

A) have you checked her eyes?

B) 1st grade is more work than kindergarten, she's doing more problems now

C) Have you talked to the teacher to see if she's struggling with reading or anything else thats hindering her homework completion?

D) My niece is smarter than most adults I know. She struggled bad with reading when she was learning how to read. It was too the point that homework took hours to finish even in 1st grade. The teacher told us skip some of the homework; having her sit that long is making it worse. WOrk on some, takea  break, go back, if she's not done after an hour or so... let the teacher know how far she got and that you worked on it. She wasn't really allowed to not DO her homework; they just tailered it for her a little bit until she caught up with confidence in reading. She was reading at a junior in college level in 7th grade. Sometimes they just hit a bump. 

E) you are sound extremely stressed (mentiong that your relationship with your daughter is on the rocks because of homework)... you could be a huge part of the problem. This was the case with my niece. My sister was not a good helper for her. She would get iritated that my niece was struggling and my niece would pick up on it and feel dumb. She started coming to my parents to do homework. Perhaps you need to take a breath, stay calmer and help her through more efficiently, if that is hard for you to do (because we can't do it all) maybe her dad? or an older sibling, or a grandparent, whoever.

My son was the same way very smart boy but it was like u discribed he just sat their confused even though we would pretty much give him the answer we were worried and we went and seen a specialist and he ended up having a concentration(tension devicite desorder .he went on medication and his grades went up a lot he is now 14 and we took him off the meds two years ago and is doing very well .oh another thing was that we were only able to give him one instruction at a time or he would pretty much forget what he was s opposed to do next .i am not say that is what your daughter is going threw but I would try the specialist can't hurt and u know she's smart so maybe theirs some issues that she needs sortied out .remember it's harder on her then you and encouragement goes along ways
