My DD is 9 years old and in grade 3, She is in a new school this year and we are getting used to the way things work. She is also dyslexic so homework is harder on her than an average child. I ask for her to do it as much as possible on her own but I don't trust her "time management skills" with good reason. So every night from 6h30pm to 7h00pm I sit with her and "supervise" her work, guide her through her task sheet. Yesterday we had to work for 1 hour because she was very much behind on her stuff - and I garantee you she uber fails her vocabulary test tomorrow because we spend too much time on everything else. She told me yesterday she'll get in trouble if her teacher finds out I'm helping her.
So here are my three questions :
- At what age did you stop doing this with your children ?
- Should I just let her do it on her own and let her get in trouble for un-completed work ?
- Or should I keep doing what I'm doing
