I find myself having to chase the kids (P2&P3 boys in 2012) to do their homework. If I do not make them do it, they will totally not care about it. And when they do it, they take a long time to do a piece of work. If I walk out of the room, nothing gets done (for my P2 boy) I would like to know if parents out there are having the same experience. How do you get out of the rut?
I am wondering, perhaps they have too much homework -- Learning Lab English homework is quite a lot, chinese enrichment tingxie on top of the school homework, plus attending Eng and Chinese enrichment classes plus 1 sports.
Is it too much for a kid to handle? Or am I not handling it well? I end up getting stressed up, shouting at them for wasting time, etc.
Should I have the "bochap" attitude and let them handle the consequence of not doing the work? (Usually the learning lab teacher will "feedback" to the parent that we have to monitor that they do their homework. Learning lab work is harder than sch hw so it's quite hard for them to finish without help from me)
What is the best approach towards homework ?
