Do the following statements sound familiar to you?
“My kid takes forever to do his homework. It is causing so much tension!”
“He gets so frustrated when he has to write an essay or do anything on the computer.”
“I am so tired staying up until 1:00am typing her homework!”
“When I look over their notes, I see half sentences, unfinished thoughts and no clear understanding of what they are learning.” Well, you are not alone. As parents, we go into overdrive to solve these problems. We don’t like to see our kids struggling. We see that look of defeat on their faces and it drains us – we hate to hear them say, “I’m just not smart”!
Personally, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me when I was dealing with my struggling child. I knew it was time to stop the homework battles! Time to end these power struggles! Now was the time to work on getting my child happy and confident again! The good news is that there are some simple solutions that can help your student with their academics, thereby reducing some of their frustration and anxiety!
