Homeschooling Advice

What if My Child Refuses to Do School Work?

"“What can I do if my son refuses to do his school work?” or, “I don’t know how to get my daughter to do her assignments. She just sits there for hours and doesn’t get it done!” I hear questions like these from tired and frustrated moms who simply don’t know how to get their children to do their school work! (And lest you think this is just a homeschool problem, I hear the same questions from many public and private school teachers too! Unfortunately, though, those teachers have much less control over their students’ environments than homeschooling parents, so it may be harder to remedy the situation.)

I understand how difficult it can be to get children to do their school work (I have two homeschool graduates and an 11th grader.), and there may be a variety of causes for this problem. It’s extremely important for parents to carefully search out the reasons for the child’s refusal to work, though, in order to apply the best solution."

Cabrillo Point Academy Family Liaisons

Ladan Rashidi - OC Family Liaison

I have three children who are 3, 7 and 9 years old, and I was previously a high school math teacher. Five years ago, our family chose the path of homeschooling and we have enjoyed it ever since! I am passionate about helping families navigate their way on their exciting homeschooling journey, and connecting individuals to build a community!

Shaemanique King - OC Family Liaison

I am a mom of four children, ranging in ages from 2 to 9 years old, and have homeschooled for the past five years. I consider my homeschooling style to be “eclectic” as I draw from many sources and philosophies. I enjoy planning and hosting activities and events and look forward to interacting with and supporting homeschooling families!
