Let's talk about homework, now if you have school age children you properly have had to deal with homework, I remember when my girls where little and they got homework I was ok with helping them up until it became a fight. This usually happened around year 5 or 6, they wouldn't want to do their homework and it was a fight and in the end starting with Kathy-Lee I decided that if she wouldn't do it I was not going to fight with her over it as it was stressful for me and her and honestly I just couldn't be bothered.
The first time I told a teacher that I would not fight over homework she was not happy with me and told me that homework is important, I told her yes it might be but I am not going to have a scene of it and if she didn't want to do then so be it.
I remember in high school Kathy would want the homework done but she didn't want to do it, she expected me to do and sadly I did many morning I would use the computer and internet to find the answers to many questions and print up the pages and she would had them in.
Now I am doing the homework thing all over again as it is me who helps Leo with his homework, being in year 1 it is easy for me to help him and he is willing to do the homework. You would think at this stage of my life being the nanna I would have left the homework thing behind me but alas not the case.
When I was at school I was ok at doing homework if it was easy and I could get my head around the work, but I remember there were times when I couldn't understand the work and when that happened I didn't do the work.
So what do you think about homework, if the child doesn't want to do it and it is becoming a fight and exercise in stress do you continue with it or are you like me and think it is too much of a headache and you are not going to have a fight with the child over it.
