There are children who come home from school, grab a snack, and immediately take out their agendas and start diligently working on homework without being prompted by their parents.
If this is your child, congratulations.
Let's say we know an architect named Blake- he studied at a great university, has excellent communication skills, talented management, and plenty of bricks and wood at his disposal. But every time it comes time for him to start building the houses, he forgets the blueprints, or loses his protractor. Soon enough, our architect friend falls behind. His company becomes frustrated- they know Blake has potential and credentals.
Do you and your child spend the hour before dinner arguing about getting homework done? Or for your family, is it the evening hours after dinner? Is your child staying up later and later at night working on homework? Is this your scenario, and after all these struggles, do you get a school report stating your child’s homework completion is affecting their grades? Many families can answer yes to these questions. Homework completion is a common struggle causing tension in the home and stress with students.
