#TheOrdinaryMoments – Homework Hitler

It doesn’t feel as if it has only been a week since the kids returned back to school, we seem to have fallen back into routine with ease. As always, we spent our Sunday afternoon completing homework before sharing a board game. Both J & E have become so accustomed to having homework, there are never any complaints nor fussing, they just get on with it!

#TheOrdinaryMoments - Homework Hitler

The kids seem to enjoy and respect having structure in their life. We may have a rigid-ish routine but these are our ‘Ordinary Moments’. I’m aware that I may come across as a slave driver, I’m far from it though. The kids still have plenty of time to play, certainly enough to claim boredom from time to time.

Both J & E are making fantastic progress in both their reading and writing, I regularly reward and celebrate their success, thus my wallet is currently £10 lighter. If it means that our kids succeed, then I’m quite happy to use bribery as a form of encouragement. Call me a ‘Homework Hitler’ if you please, I’m just doing whatever it takes to ensure that my kids do their very best.

Thanks for reading! I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

    It’s not bribery if you give the money after they have done the work it is a reward and a great tool to use – well that’s what I tell myself haha and I use it very regularly!
    It’s great that they are getting on well in school, education is important for all ages!

    Ours love a bit of routine and structure too – they love to know what will be happening each day and homework is very much a part of that x
