Homework. Amazing how one word can enduce so much stress for parents and kids alike, isn't it?
We get many questions from parents on the topic of homework. How do I get my child to do their homework without tears? My son won't let me quiz him on his spelling and vocabulary words, what do I do? What's the best way to encourage good study habits? How much should I be involved in my child's homework?
The list of questions is endless. That's why we have lots of articles about homework on our site. It's also why we decided to do a School Family Twitter give-away this week that is tied to, you guessed it: dealing with homework hassles. Here's how the contest works:
For starters, follow School Family on Twitter.
Then, tweet about the biggest homework challenge in your house. In your tweet, use the hashtag #HomeworkHelp. Every time you tweet about your homework challenge using the #HomeworkHelp hashtag you'll be entered to win spelling software from SpellQuizzer.
@schoolfamily My daughter is so forgetful, she forgets her homework at least 1x/week! #HomeworkHelp
@schoolfamily My son thinks that done is good enough when it comes to homework. Would like him to exert more effort. #HomeworkHelp
You get the idea! So you can't lose: you get a chance to vent to other parents about the homework hassles in your house, and in the process you just might win a cool software package that helps your kids learn their spelling and vocabulary words. We'll be drawing 2 winners at the end of day (4pm EST) on Friday.
Let the homework hassles catharsis begin!
