Those children who don't have homework

My son is sitting at the kitchen counter doing his homework. He is not crying about it, he is not upset and he doesn't need my help. He is quietly doing his homework. And, because I can't believe this scenario, I am also staying very quiet. But my head is buzzing:…

Helping you with your assignment for Women

Modern students have a lot of activities in their college. They have to do a lot of assignments, projects and participate in various extracurricular activities. All these activities squeeze time and leave very little time for the assignments and home work. To make the things worse all the teachers want their assignments to be completed almost on the same day. Thus, leaving you in the bewildered state of mind, as what to do to get all the assignments completed in time.  You can relax as you…

The books on the list we haven't read yet

When my son was little, I had a great time picking out books for him. I read him books that I loved when I was little, books that other Moms recommended, and we discovered several new fun series. Some of the books from my childhood had lost their charm, but most of them were like visiting with a very dear friend.…

The pressures of being perfect

My son likes to talk through his reading homework with me. Each week he has to choose a book, choose four questions from a list and answer questions about the book. (It used to be way more involved than that, but I think there were parental complaints, so the teacher scaled it back a little.) As an adult, I fully understand what the homework is…

What was that book about again?

Every week, my son has trouble coming up with a book to use for his reading homework. And this baffled me. I mean, he is always reading. Sometimes, he is re-reading a book that I saw him read the week before. And, I ask him questions about the things that he reads, so I know he is really reading them.…

A space for homework

I have a vivid memory of my parents installing a built-in desk in my room. It was a counter that was affixed to the wall, but I loved it. I thought of all the work that I would do at that desk. I made designer outfits with fashion plates and colored pictures and set up villages for my dolls there.…

Tips every parent should use to help his child improve grades

For most parents, school and their kid’s desire to get educated (or, should I better say, the lack of thereof?), are among the biggest child-raising challenges they face. When your smart, beautiful child refuses to make the full use of his potential and comes home from school with…

Thinking about ways to improve

At least once a week I have an argument with my son over homework. I fully understand his position: He doesn't want to do it. I am not sure that he understands my position, however: Homework is a part of school; it is a way to show comprehension of materials learned during the week. I am just trying to read him his spelling words.…

Alert: Your child missed an assignment today

I know what my son's homework is: I know about the spelling assignments and the online math homework and the reading comprehension sheets and all the additional projects. I know all of this, of course, because my son's teacher sends notes - both physical and over email - on a very regular basis.…

No time like the present

My son is doing his math homework on the computer. Today's lesson centers on the clock. He dutifully types in the time that each clock face represents. Since he is pretty good at this, he whizzes through all the questions.…

Unpacking at the end of the day

My son has a few responsibilities when he gets home from school, which includes unpacking his book bag.



This is a relatively simple gig, and yet, it can go so very, very wrong. I have often come home from work to find his bag still packed on the couch or his things scattered in a few locations. Don't get me…

I am not interested in doing homework

The other day I reminded my son that camp would be over soon, and it would be time for him to return to school.



He frowned at me.…

Why I ignore most of my son's homework

My son has been in school since he was six weeks old. Not daycare. School. Before he reached preschool age, he had endured extensive homework requests to put together collages of various themes, build beanstalks, retell stories and (once) to build a robot. And we did it all because education is important to me.…

Just say No to homework

Imagine this: School is over. Your children go to their after-school sports activity or music lesson and finally comes home. They have time to play outside and get some fresh air and sunshine. At the dinner table, everyone has time to talk about their day before retiring for their separate activities for the evening. Your children go to bed on time.…

This will be on the test

My son is in real school now: He has defined classes, grades and real homework. So far, he has loved all of it.



As we continue on his academic journey, I am trying to keep a close eye on how he handles the structure and rules of school. Especially tests. He had a math test last week that he was excited to…

Why are we all scared of math?

Full disclosure: Math was not my favorite subject in school. But even though I didn't care for math, I still made really great grades in it.



To me, math was too finite. If I was writing an essay, I could write my way out of a corner. With math, you were either right or wrong with your answers. And my…

Back to school means it's time to stress out over homework

In my little corner of the world, school starts next week. And all around me I hear the moms talking about various after school programs and which ones they are avoiding because they don't encourage children to complete their homework first.



And I can hear that they are already stressed out over their…

Expecting your children to make the grade

As mentioned before in this blog, my Mom told me that my job was to be a good student. She expected me to make excellent grades, and she was clear on her expectations. (Not Tiger Mother level of expectations, but her point was clear.) She told me I was smart; I believed her; I did well in school.…
