I quit homework completely for my son two years ago, We learn through intensive play. We schedule every Thursday night for 2 hours is games night. Scrabble, Charades, Pass the bomb – All games which work with literacy skills, Problem Solving and sometimes math (construction games for eg). As they get older I introduce different things.
I think when your at your absolute wits end you have to find what works for you. Lucky for me our teachers are fully supportive and can see the benefits. Like the old saying the proof is in the pudding. If you can show something else works your school will support you.
My middle child just DOES her homework. Just like that. One shoe doesnt fit all thats for sure!
