Calling steps/Bios/ teachers ANYONE with school age kids
SS13 Among other things is horrible with his school work! I will say he has ADHD and a IEP plan at school. SS has always needed extra help/time since the beginning but this last year he’s been REALLY bad.
First he LIES to DH and the teachers about Homework. He will tell teachers he “forgot” it at home when it’s time to hand it in or tell DH/BM he “forgot” it in his locker so he does not have to do it. When in Reality he just never did it or does not want to do it. If DH/BM know SS has the HW SS will tell DH/BM that he does not know what to do and plays dumb. This will either get SS out from doing it if DH can’t figure it out OR DH will sit with SS and walk him through everything. Basically making it easy for SS.
At school teachers have said SS “will act busy” but really not doing the work. Teachers have said he needs ALOT of one on one help with the teachers sitting with him.
The school Recommended SS stay after school in like a HW lab. SS HATED this and would refuse to do any work and just sat there for two hours.
DH sees NOTHING wrong with him sitting with SS and helping him with his HW. I think he’s Being an enabler.
So I guess I’m Curious how Independent your kids either bios or steps are regarding homework Especially middle school age kids? Do you have to sit with them when they do their HW? Do you have to read the questions with them and help them find the answers?
