"Why I always got a lot of homeworks wan?"

That's the question that Jona always pop out from his mouth when I asked him to finish his homework before he is allowed to play or watch tv.


Previously, he love to do his homework and either myself or my mom or his teacher never has problem of couching him to do his homework. But, I guess as he grow older, he start to get lazy in doing his homework. Early this year, he will finished his homework after some talking but, esp when Iz start schooling from 1st June 2008 together with him, obviously can see Jona just got 'demotivate' in finishing his homework.

"Why I always got a lot of homeworks wan?" "Why Iz don't have homework wan?" "Why everday I need to do my homework wan?" And, more and more questions pop out while he so unwillingness to finish his homework. It seem he just feel so unhappy that he has to finish his homework while Iz happily playing around even though both attend same school.

At least, 4 - 6 homeworks daily!!!

Initially, I told him that Iz still young and just started schooling, so, no homework...and later, I informed him that soon, Iz also need to finish his homework when he is 4 yrs old.....and now, I have finish all my reasoning with Jona, as I don't know what answer to tell him anymore .

What came worst is: He will do his homework but with him holding his pencil high up in the sky to write...imagine the outcome (??!!)...

Suddenly, maybe, GOD listen to my prayer, I find the solution indirectly......I bought Jona new bicycle on his recent birthday, and since then, every evening I will bring him and Iz riding their bicycle to playground, and I told him, if he finished his homework before I came back home, then, immediately we can go playground riding his bicycle....and it works except the handwritting part!!

It is really not easy to couch kids to do their homework, and I bet I will face even more challenger when Jona enter primary 1, as I'm a 'bananawoman' and when Iz start to have homework from next year onward as he hate doing colouring except create 'disturbance'.......

I wonder does the child achieved anything by doing more homework? Sometimes I find them, just do for the sake of doing.
