The Whoas of Homework

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
Homework....it is a part of life. There is no getting out of it. Not all the whinning, crying, complaining, blaming others, yelling, ignoring, screaming, or anything else will make it go away!
Can anyone tell me why kids just don't get this?
I had countless hours of homework as a kid, and really it wasn't that long ago, but now I am TARTUED by my son's constant complaining......
Ummmmm...........I know I it is life.....grrrrrrrr

    Yes I am also doing homework again myself. I do have a time with mine, to do there's. But I just keep on them or go talk to the teacher and they hate that. So that kinda makes them work alittle harder on it. If it show's on the grade card that they haven't been trying harder. Well they get alot of things taken away, they hate that too. Guess they'll learn someday.....huh?

    Homework-should be called punishment for the parents
    I have one who will say he has no homework just to keep from having to do it. The others no problem even have one who wants me to create homework for him-goofball . The worse part is the one who doesn't do the homework there is no problem for the school, he can do it later. His thought why bother if it doesn't matter. Like pulling teeth! I feel for you. Let me know if you figure out a way to get them to do it without a hassle.

    Hahaha, I am commiserating right there with you darlin'. Kids today... they seem to want to shirk their responsibilities, expect pats on the back when they aren't deserved... Do you suppose it has to do with all the *make it fair for everybody* mentality? When we were kids, if you tried out for sports and didn't get it, you worked harder the next year and tried again. Nowadays, all kids get on the team. When I was a kid.. when their was a birthday party for another kid in the class, you held your breath hoping you'd get invited, sometimes you did, sometimes you didn't, if you didn't - you got over it. Nowadays, in the schools my kids have been in, if you don't send invites for the whole class, then you can't send them at all. WTH? What's up with that? Are kids not allowed to feel disappointed? Isn't that part of growing up? Aren't we teaching them that the whole world should bow at their feet rather than teaching them that life isn't always fair and if you don't work hard, you won't get anywhere??

    On Homework... thankfully my kids school has a system where the teachers post all of their homework assignments on a network. My kids can say, "I don't have homework" hahaha, and I've already looked at their assignments & I'll say, "Oh yeah, you already finished pg 162-162 in math problems 3-30 even?? Hmm?? Good, get it, let me check it out".

    LOL, they hate it, but I love it. They still balk at homework, but I pound home that it's Their Job, my job... is to make them miserable (or so I've been told).

    Hugs,
    Liss

    I'm have a kid doing the same as wilbe95's kid. Always says that he has none to do. I know better, so I also ask to see the work. If he doesn't have it, then I make a trip to the school to talk with the teacher. He really hates that one....lol.......he'll learned one day, I hope. Kids forget that we were kids at one time too.

    Your right Liss, they do think that the world owes them something. I think not, they are learning a very hard lesson. Hard lessons are the best ones to learn. If we didn't have them to learn, we wouldn't learn anything.

    This has been a good week for the homework making it home. However I am a rotten mom,, I threatened that if there was one late paper I would go up to the school to pick him up and meet him at his last class and walk him to his locker and then to all of his classrooms to make sure we have everything needed so he would not have any late papers. If that was not bad enough for him, I also told him that by the way I will dress how I desire-which means the fuzzy slippers, the old wore out pj's, the housecoat with the stains and holes, and the shower cap with bright red lipstick and talk very loud "ALEX, BABY, MOMMY IS HERE TO HELP YOU GET YOUR HOMEWORK TODAY!!!". Total devistation for that boy. But guess he thinks I would really do it because the homework made it home and not one late paper . A mom's got to do what a mom's got to do.
