Hi, I have a seven year old. She just startied back to school last wednesday. She is in second grade. Last year, homework became increasingly harder to get her to complete. This summer she said she didn't want to go back to school because she didn't want to work that hard. Now she refuses to do her homework, even tho' there are rewards at school and loss of things like dessert at home. I don't know if I'm going about it right, or if I need to change my tactic. Tonight she chose to go to bed and cry herself to sleep rather than touch her homework. I know she's tired when she gets home, so I try to give her an hour or two of wind down time to work on it. Help! I need to get a handle on it early this year so we don't end up with the same struggles at the end of this school year. I'd love some advice!
