Do you wonder if homework arguments are just bad behaviour? Here’s what we tell our parents:
“Can you add fractions, subtract fractions or convert decimals if you don’t know what a basic fraction means?”
Of course not. This is what your child is feeling.
Not Enough Effort?
Imagine going to an 8 hr movie in a language you don’t understand.
Can you just try harder to understand in that moment or would you need to spend time learning that language?
Will it matter if you try harder and concentrate more? Of course not.
Imagine trying to put a jigsaw puzzle together which is missing half of the pieces.
Will it matter if you try a different strategy?
Were you ‘just a bit lazy today?’
Of course not, without all of the pieces, you can’t put the puzzle together.
This is what a child feels when they are missing the basics in maths, phonics and writing.
No matter how hard they try, if you don’t fill in the gaps you finish with the same result every time.
What can I do?

constantly ask for reassurance with work?
