My daughter attends all day kindergarten at a private catholic school. She loves school and loves her teacher. She is doing well and the teacher has confirmed that she is an "ideal" student. At the beginning of October the teacher began assigning homework two times a week. Simple assignments....like coloring and printing.
My daughter cries on every time we sit down to do homework. I have tried to set up a good environment. Quiet room. Well lit. No distractions. etc. She cries and completely falls apart every time. She says that she just hates homework.
I am afraid that this is setting a precedent for the future. If she falls apart with simple coloring assignments now, what will the future hold?
How do others handle homework. Some suggestions would be appreciated. I don't want to blow this from the start!!!
