How do I get my 6th grader to remember to bring his homework home? I've tried everything and nothing is working, I ask about it and he says he finished it at school, when he didn't even hand it in.

My 2nd option- I give my daughter homework time during the week. If she doesn't have it from the school she has to do mine. She has found it is better to bring home the schools assignments.
