I am trying to take a break from my son's homework. We are writing a book report--3rd grade. I'm tired of homework
The biggest & most important lesson they learned from that is that schoolwork is so important that mom & dad or both will turn off the TV & put away the newspaper & shut off TUG-BBS, etc., in order to help the kids with homework assignments.As I recall I was involved with my son's HW - as a nag and proofreader - till about 7th grade, and with my daughter's till about 9th - in her case explaining assignments that seemed too hard. Somehow they do eventually reach the point where they don't want help anymore - even if you want to help!
