Aargh, Homework!

Somehow whenever I ask them if they have homework and it’s still light out, the answer is ‘no mommy’ and yet somehow 2 minutes before bed, someone panics about homework that is due tomorrow.

I don’t get it!

I have to balance between ensuring that I firmly show my disapproval with ensuring my patience in actually working with them to get it done.

Then I have to balance between letting then try and fail versus eagerly telling them how to do it.

Finally I have to balance the encouragement of them actually doing good work with the fact I’m as annoyed as heck that we are doing all this at the last minute.
