We have had posts relating to how much homework Kindergarten students get and I think I have also seen some regarding a few other grades (my dd is in 1st). I was wondering what amount moms think their kids "should" have for homework each night.
I personally loved school and loved homework. My dd is pretty much my complete opposite. I think the amount of homework sent home is actually pretty small for her age although I'm grateful it isn't more b/c we struggle so much with the amount she has. I have seen studies on the value of practicing and I know that the more you do the more you learn but what if the child isn't doing it? I feel that if the child is strongly resisting the amount it isn't benefitting them. Imo her homework isn't hard but she may have some learning disabilities which are making it very hard for her in particular.
2nd part of my question what do you do to motivate your child to do homework? Does anyone have any ideas to make homework fun and not such a nightmare?
