My daughter has a four year old daughter that is in pre-school. She is learning to write her letters. She has one sheet of one letter to write for the whole week (3 days of school - 2.5 hrs per day). Anyhow I don't know what started first but Layna (the little one) hates homework and cries. Patti (Mom) gets frustrated and yells, threatens, hits, flicks her with her finger, did I mention yell...only making the situation worse. Tonight it is 9:45 in the evening, Layna way past her bed time and Mom is yelling and carrying on, she is a perfectionist. I can hear Layna cry from 2 rooms away in the house and I can tell when she hit her or flicked her cause Layna cries differently and louder. I worry for Layna when they eventually move into a place of their own. We all live together now. This is not once in a while it is everytime homework is done. Other things too, like putting a puzzle together, coloring a picture, playing a game...anything.
Please help. What do you other Moms think?
