Every fall we start our school year off with excitement and anticipation. New school books, a new routine, and the whole “back-to-school” atmosphere is enough motivation to keep my kids more than happy to do their school work. Sadly, it’s not long before the work slows to a grinding halt. The shine has worn off, and the school work ends up untouched.

what-if-my-child-refuses-to-do-school-1Actually it’s feast or famine at my house. With my kids, it’s usually not that they are openly rebelling and refusing to do their school work. No, it exhibits itself as goofing off. The looks they give each other and the sounds they’ve made up (are my kids the only weird ones that do this?) crack each other up and they refuse to buckle down to complete their work. OR they nit-pick and purposely irritate each other so badly that they prevent each other from getting school work done. Oy vey.

No matter what the details of your exact situation are, click here to motivate your child to complete her school work!
