Homework Tantrums

My 8yr old LOVES doing her homework, in fact she loves learning which shows in all her school results.

My 10yr old however doesn't, especially if it involves writing!

He is too impatient and just wants to get it over and done with as quick as possible so he can get back to more fun things.

So this weekend's homework was a complete nightmare for him... copying a paragraph of writing neatly, which meant taking his time and concentrating!

He threw the biggest tantrum I've ever seen him throw over homework, throwing his pencil, moaning, complaining, arguing etc but after being told he wasn't to leave the table and was grounded from his tablet until it was done, he finally did it!

Goodness knows how he'll cope next year when he starts secondary school and has a lot more, harder homework!!!
