10 year old doing poorly in school...

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

I am having a heck of a time with my 10-year old turning in her homework! She'll complete the work at home; and she either doesn't take it to school the next day at all, OR she "loses" it in her desk at school (or elsewhere). I just don't know how to help her... Got a note the other day from her teacher saying her grades have dropped drastically because she's not turning anything in! ARGH... Thanks!

I have been having the same problem with my 9yr old. I have started taking her homework when she is finished and putting it in a red folder. I have found that if I take it and put it in her bookbag it makes it to school. I had to write an email to her teacher to tell her where to tell my daughter to look when she would think that she has lost her homework. Sometimes it's just too much going on for them in class and they forget. Try the folder system and see how it works. Good Luck to you!
