In many homes, peace and harmony are not part of the nightly homework routine. Instead, we have battles, frustrations, and tears. As parents, many of us are left wondering what we are doing wrong and why this time together has to be so intolerable. The main difficulty is that kids have different and fluctuating reasons for not wanting to do homework. Just when we think we have it all figured out, the reason changes and the frustrations come back. This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try to figure it out. It simply means that we should be aware that many factors play into homework struggles, and we need to pay attention to which is the culpable issue. Take a look at some of the possible causes, and experiment to find some viable solutions for your student.
