Most Common Homework Challenges Children and Parents Deal With

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When it comes to homework it seems that so many problems appear for both children and parents. We are faced with various excuses for not doing homework and parents often make mistakes in handling the problems. Knowing what to do starts by understanding the common homework challenges so this is what we are going to talk about in the following paragraphs.

Forgetting On Purpose

Many children say they forgot to do the homework and they do so knowingly since they do not really want to do the homework in the first place. In many cases you solve this problem by simply talking to the child and showing why homework is important. It is also possible that homework is too difficult. In this case you would need to talk with the teacher about it to be sure that the child can actually do the work. It is possible that the child is looking for attention or the child can simply be lazy.

Reading Books To Prepare For Tests

Casual readings are not going to help as this is not usually enough preparation for a test. We do not expect to know how to solve math problems without practice so we should not expect reading to offer the knowledge needed to pass tests. In most situations all that needs to be done is to discuss with the teacher to learn how appropriate preparation for the test should be handled.

Not Finishing All The Homework

This can happen because of so many different reasons. In many cases, unfortunately, the big problem is that there is simply too much homework that has to be done. Teachers do expect the homework to be done and adequate amounts are issued. The problem with that is that the child can easily end up being overwhelmed. Different children do have different speeds at which homework is done. You can always run into something that is more difficult and that takes longer than expected.

When the child does not finish the homework although he/she keeps trying it is important to assess whether or not there is too much homework assigned in the first place. Talk with children, other parents and teachers to get solutions for the problem. If not too much homework is assigned, develop a study schedule. That will help but be sure enough relaxation time is included.

Not Writing Neatly Enough

This is a problem for both children and teachers. While it is always a good idea to let the child slow down and write at a pace that would allow writing in a neat way, sometimes this is simply not possible. You have to understand that this is not at all a really important thing as long as the writing is understandable. What you should do is make it clear that handwriting is related to having good manners. Readable, tidy writing will make very good first impressions that will last for a long time.

Remember that the foundation of helping your child deal with all homework problems is communication. You want to keep talking to the child and honestly looking for solutions.

        Homework being too difficult is one thing, but many children also suffer from work being too easy. This causes them to get bored and ultimately, they have no challenge and no desire to move forward with it. Imagine yourself having to do very basic addition of single digit numbers on a daily basis for numerous hours. You would get so bored that you would probably end up hating it. Well, work being too easy for children is a leading cause for children hating school. Give our kids a personalized workload with more custom-built tasks. Age should not determine our intelligence!! Kids should individually have their own tailor-made course and children at similar levels should be place in classrooms together rather than combining groups according to age. This would resemble more of what our universities are like and would give our children much more motivation!

        Teachers could use sites like Edmodo to make the personalization task possible: https://freesiteslike.com/sites-like-edmodo/

      I would also add reviews of college essay writing service to the list. Though personally I believe one should address the root of the problem. All those named in the article are real but they are only the tips of an iceberg. The major problem is that parents tend to distance themselves from the parenting role and delegate it to school, trying to be just friends to their children. And school does it best to cope with the task. But can it be more effective to mentor a group of 30+ children than one or two? I don’t think so. Children need a living, breathing, personalized model around to look up to. They can’t look up to an institution.
