Giving your children answers to homework

Teresa - posted on 03/14/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 9 year old is always expecting me to sit with her and tell her what to write for an essay or just simply give her the answer and I'm tired of it. I told her like I always do she needs to apply herself and pay attention in class and at least make an attempt to do the work on her own. Font get mr wrong if it seems like something to difficult got her age , I'll explain it to her and give her the answer . I think she's just lazy and is not applying herself. What do I do? She's working on a assignment now and is begging for me to help some more. I've already given her some ideas for the first two paragraphs she did , she needs to do the third one . Don't you agree ?

You just need to tell her she has to do the work herself. She is never going to learn to do it if you do it for her. Just lay down the rules. If she fails, maybe she learns something and failing is not a bad thing. Failing teaches us what we did not understand before.
