The first day of school I was informed that Allan will bring home a homework folder every night. Every night he has to spend 20 minutes reading. Then I have to sign the reading log saying he did it. Some nights he will have other homework also.
I told him that we already have the rule that video games go off at 6:00pm. I do not want him waiting until he has "nothing to do" to get his homework done. So I told him from now on, the games to not come on until his homework is done. That includes his 20 minutes of reading.
He loves reading, and loves being read to. I usually do spend about 20 minutes at bedtime reading to both my boys. So I was really surprised tonight when he got upset about having to do it! I don't know if it was because he *had* to or that there was a set time he had to read or if it was just an off day.
I do not want to fight over homework every night. Any advice? Also, what are your homework rules?
