I'm new here and love the site.
I have a 5.5yo who refuses to do her HW. Some days are great, she does em fast and furious. But those days are few. Most of the time it's a long process, she begins to cry, is now giving us some mouth off attitute and it eventually escalates to us shouting, removing the toys, and sending her to her room to do it herself because we just can't deal with it.
In the end, we are all frazzled out, hubby and I, and my 5yo is just all upset.
We follow through with threats, take away toys she likes and if awful bad, take away gymnastics etc.
We are attachement parenting couple, family bed, nursing etc. I thought this would be easier, but kindergarden is proving to be beyond my parenting abilities.
Why is this so hard? Are we the only ones?
