Sometimes a little encouragement is all that’s needed. Josh does not enjoy doing homework. Not because he doesn’t know how to do it, but he views homework as an unnecessary interruption to things that he’d rather be doing. I had always had to
nag remind him again and again to to finish his homework. He would groan and complain.
Last week, he handed in his homework (which was actually done up very well). His homework earned him “Homework Star of the Week” in his class. He came home quite proud of that. He said that he’s going to try to be the awardee each week. This week, as soon as homework had been assigned, he got down to it immediately, on his own. I love that he is more conscientious about doing his homework now. I love it that he doesn’t wait until the very last minute and cram. Maybe it’s his getting the award, perhaps he’s more mature now, too. Regardless, I hope this continues on.
