Re: Motivating a 6-year old boy to do homework - how?

Hello everyone Thanks for the feedback. I haven't thought about challenging the teachers to make home work more fun - thanks for that. The LAST thing I want to do is to turn him off, but I'm also caught in a system that requires kids to start school at 4 and to be able to read books (for the appropr...
