I really don't know if any other parents are feeling like they are getting nowhere with their kids when it comes to homework time. Joshua my 6yr old son either starts crying or just giving us any answer. I have tried to explain to him that if you don't know something just let me know. Now I have to go through this at least 3-4 times a week with him. I look forwarded to seeing my son when he gets home from school but dread the homework time. When his father helps him he has the same problem as well. If anybody has any advice i'm all ears. I so very frustrated with this.

Sometime my almost 6 year old gets like this. Fortunately he's only in half day kindergarten so if he is in a funk or starts popping an attitude we tell him to go take a break and we'll revisit it later. I also do this if he's trying to rush through it. I usually give him 30 minutes to unwind and then we do it again, if we get the same thing the second time around we start taking away things and usually that's enough to get him to settle down and get the work done.

Homework time has always been brutal in our home... M daughter now knows she won't be leaving the table until it is done. I sit with her and help her when she needs me too...

Thanks ladies for your comments and advice. I will be going and speaking with his teacher about some advice.

We have a total of 4 kids together. One in college, two still in high school and then Joshua. The older ones do help their little brother but at times he does the same thing with them.All of our kids get straight A's or A's and B's. Maybe i'm expecting to much from Joshua. We are going to continue to work on this and I know we are going to get through this. Again thanks you guys.

It sucks doesn't it? Wait until high school....... **sigh**



But honestly, if it has become something that is upsetting him, and that you are all dreading, I think perhaps have a talk to his teacher. It may be something in your approach that is upsetting him (I am not saying that to be critical) that the teacher may be able to offer tips on that will make it easier on everyone.
