Homework is viewed as a very negative and annoying thing to do by most of the kids. Most of them prefer to give the teacher an excuse the next day without completing the homework, rather than spending time doing class work at home. Some may even opt for copying from the friends books.
Use these tips that I use for my little three musketeers to get them to complete their class work with very little or no fuss at all.
The first thing you should do is to be supportive and encouraging. Don’t ever try scolding or shouting or even advising them. As it is only a temporary solution to getting their work done. And in most cases they will be very aggressive and respond to such actions in a negative way. In order for you to see results you should always encourage them. Make them feel that they can do it and that it is not a big deal. Also make sure to not make getting top grades the only thing that they should achieve. It is not only about grades! It is about how well your child can fit in, how they fair in sports, how they get along with teachers and most importantly how much knowledge they get not grades!
Make it fun
Make a learning a fun process. Integrate learning with fun activities. You can for instance use an IB math tutorial alongside some fun to learn with colours and shapes to illustrate their lessons in the books. It will make them feel happier and make them inquisitive of the lesson. Make sure to always make learning a fun process and then you will no longer have to beg them to come do their work. In fact it will be them who is begging you to come do the work!
A very important aspect of making children to accept doing lessons and homework at home with no resistance is to make it a daily routine. Once it has been incorporated into their lives as a daily routine they will adjust to it. And it will become a normal routine thing that they have to do. Make sure that even during the holidays if the kids are at home to make them do some educational activity related to classwork although they are not required to do any such work. You can know more in secondary school math tutorial to complete for the kids if they are in middle school.
Finally, make sure to have a rewarding system in place. Reward your kid who completes all the work first and is the neatest. Or you could even get rewards for those who did well in their exams. That way they feel motivated to do better.
