is there any suggestions as to how to get a 7 yr old to do there homework? my son everyday has to put up a fight for his homework. we have tried pretty much all avenues and nothing seems to work. we take away privilages; tried talking to him; tried bribing him / reasoning with him and NOTHING works. it basically dont phase him. its pretty much a fight for 2 + hrs for a math page that is dbl sided n english work every day. ive resorted to if he dont want to take the help he is being offered and if he wants to fail to let him fail and learn the hard way of classroom consequences. im at witts end and dont know what to do anymore.

Make a game out of it. Set a timer for 10 or 20 minutes and see if he could beat the clock by finishing in that time. Check it and make him correct whatever is wrong. I only do that with my son if he doesn't feel like doing his homework. Nine times out of ten he's done within the first 10 minutes.

i would just tell him to sit and do it and if he was their all night let it be, he will learn eventually xx
