In Elementary school, they should only get homework if they need extrz work on something. For goodness sakes, they spend 7 hours a day at school, aren't they supposed to learn there? How about some time to get exercise and have fun?

Make it a condition for enjoying privileges. Ask child when he wants to do the work (as long as it's not too late). Tell them to do the hard parts first (ending on a good note is best). Monitor child's abilities and communicate with teachers.

Play to their personalities. The Bible says, "Train up a child in the way THEY should go..." My daughter likes to act like an adult, so I have her treat school/homework like it's her job. She's self-driven to accomplish; we just act like cheerleaders

Make the homework something they can understand. No kid (I would know) wants to go home and attept to do something they don't understand.

For those of you bashing the school I feel like your school experience is what you make it! "just saying"

Each child is different and each care giver is too. I am going to try harder this year to be more patient and readily available. My grandson is a great kid and deserves the best. I need to practice patience.

It helps my kids A LOT if I sit with them doing my own thing, but answering ?'s or refocusing as needed.
