I made a homework organizer worksheet for all those kids who are having trouble keeping track of their homework, turning in assignments, etc. Having things organized is a huge stress reducer for kids with anxiety and depression, and very helpful for kids with ADHD who are struggling with organization. Now just make sure they bring this paper back and forth to school!

If your kid is giving you a hard time about doing homework there are a few options:
-let the teacher handle it/school consequences
-set up a reward system
-don’t allow child to play/watch TV until homework is completed
-offer help if they ask nicely
Parents vary on their stances on homework such as:
-“as long as it’s done”
-“it has to be done perfect”
-“I have no idea if he/she did it or not”
There are pros and cons of each approach. The first one is pretty typical and avoids most battles but still makes sure the work is done, the second one makes sure child is learning the work but can involve a lot of power struggles because parent makes child do it over and over to get it perfect. The third one inspires independence for your child but if they aren’t doing it the parents don’t even know until perhaps they start getting graded on homework (middle school, sometimes earlier depending on your child’s school).
