Need Advice

If I find one more piece of homework or class work in my daughters binder, after she's told me she's turned everything in, I don't know WHAT I'm going to do?!!!

She says she's not trying to get failing grades - so she won't get into the high school we want her to go to - but actions speak louder than words.  Is it really so hard for an Eighth grader to remember to turn in work??

I need some advice!

  1. Tara isn't always great about turning in homework.I think the teenagers have selective memory. I decided last year that her homework was her problem. I ask if she has homework, remind her once that she has homework, and after that it is on her. I realize we are not trying to gain admittance to a special school, but it has saved me so much aggravation!
    Good luck!

  2. My son is in 8th grade and he was having trouble too. We made a rule that the minute he comes home, he needs to empty his bag and show me what he has to do then spend an hour doing homework (or reading text books if he says he has no homework). I would stay with him to help if needed. It totally worked...for like a month until we all sorta lost interest in that plan! I have great ideas but my follow-through sucks!
