Hi, actually it's alot of foundation work you put in in your child's early years, that is at 1 year old. By starting to read alot earlier, they will develop longer attention span. When they are ready to scribble/write, I'll buy books that are fun and attractive to help them develop this motivation to complete the exercise.
So when DS1 is at 2, he can sit down to write liao (with lots of guiding).
I left him alone when he is around 4 to do his own mazes, puzzles (all the fun stuff).
At 5, he will then be tasked to do less-fun homework like doing math + simple languages work and more completed 3D mazes (mazes are very good as they help to develop brain and eye coordination and visualization skills). He likes to also do lots of craft work, so basically he's left alone to complete such 'homework'.
Now at 6, he needs to complete all the sentence writing, chinese reading, multiplication and compo lor... It's less fun now, but he wouldn't realise it bec it has become his habit now.
The problem with TV is that he will get too engrossed in it that he will tell me his eyes are too tired to do homework. Or that tv time took so much of his free time away that he has no more time to complete the homework at leisure. So homework will be done hastily and it will become a stressful event for him.
