What do you do when your child refuses to do his work? It’s frustrating! Learn how to cope when your homeschooler balks at schoolwork.
What do you do when your homeschooled child won’t do his schoolwork? The situation is frustrating, but how to handle it depends on why it’s happening. In most cases, blatant defiance isn’t why your homeschooler is balking at schoolwork.
First, determine the cause of the resistance. The coping method you choose will vary if it’s a discipline problem instead of, say, a readiness issue.
Consider factors such as:
- The age of the child
- Possible physical or medical issues (ADHD, vision or hearing problems, Asperger’s)
- Potential learning challenges (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia)
- Significant changes in the child’s life (divorce, a death in the family, the birth of a sibling, a move)
- How your current curriculum meshes with his learning style or your teaching style
