Everyday my son "forgets" to brings is homework home. I have written notes to the teacher, remind him each and everyday before dropping him off at school to bring it, but nothing is working!! Any ideas?

My son used to do that everyday! Or came up with the excuses, either he forgot it, or did it and turned it in already. I literally had to become friends with his teacher so we could discuss everyday tasks. Either i would call her or she would call me. i have come to realize that homework is a big part of their grade. How old is your son?

What does his teacher say?

I don't see what you can do from your end. The point that you are bringing it up to the teach shows you're concern as a parent. The teacher needs to ask him at the end of the day "Do you have your homework" until it becomes routine. If he says "Yes" but says "No" to you, then you will know that "forgetting the homework" is not the real issue.
