My Year 8 Daughter is not performing well at school

Flora - posted on 09/15/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My year 8 daughter is smart. Most of her subject teachers said she is capable. But she is not interested to study nor do her homework. Every time I mentioned homework or to study her lessons, she gets upset. She is interested more in music and chatting with her friends. What shall I do? Need help..

She is 8. Who is the parent in this relationship? Let her know it is her JOB to be a student. Let her know she can't have her free time chatting to friends until she completes her homework. Let her get upset. As long as you don't give in, she will eventually just realise it is better to just do the homework so she can then have her free time.
