My kids love school, they enjoy learning and they enjoy being around their peers. One thing they do not like is homework. Extra lessons to take home to improve and/or practice skills learned in class. To my kids its exactly that, work and it takes away from their limited fun leisure time after school before supper and bed.

During grades two and three we had many an argument with our eldest daughter, she did not want to do her homework. She did not like the teaching method the teacher used, she did not understand what was going on after assigned homework was given. We did practice, we took our time and we communicated with the teacher to help her thrive and succeed, be the best she knows she can be.

As a parent, homework is important for my kids to continue doing great and thriving when it comes to education. Even if they don't have physical homework written in their agendas or communication books, I do encourage reading or playing educational games to help keep their young minds stimulated.

When my oldest who is in grade four has homework, I set her up in a clean work area to start. Usually the kitchen table where I can monitor her and she can ask for help if she needs any. The less distractions the quicker and better she works. The best time for my kids to do any homework is after a quick snack when they get off the bus. If we do it right after school they are irritable and cranky from a full day of learning. If we wait until after supper, it's too late - the energy is gone and they are close to being ready for bed. Better to boost the brain after school with a healthy snack and then hit the books before that happens.

There are at times I wonder if we will one day need another resource to help us with our kids homework woe's.
