Help, my 10 year old daughter repeatedly doesn't do her homework, or if she does it, she turns it in late. She is in 5th grade this year and I feel like I need to nip the problem in the bud now, or she will really have issues next year. The have student planners at her school that they are supposed to write their homework down in each day so parents can verify that everything is done. But she doesn't write anything down, or if it is, she tells me that she did it at school and it's in her desk. I've already told her that tonight she will have to complete everything that hasn't been done and turn it in tomorrow, and I have taken TV away (which she doesn't really watch during the week anyways). How do I get the point across how important it is to get her homework done everyday?
