Has it been a struggle?
Is the homework packet they get on Monday too thin?
Do you find yourself doing a lot of the thinking for your child?
Remember homework should be reinforcing what your child has already learned at school and should not take your child more than 5-10 minutes to complete- if they are doing a page each night. Getting the 20 minutes of reading in each day can be a struggle. Having your child read 20 minutes in bed before lights out is great way for them to mentally unwind and calm down from their day.
