My DS is in year 1 and is not enthusiastic about homework at all. He rushes things so they are wrong and extremely messy. He has the ability just doesn't want to do it basically. At this age do you firmly encourage them to do it and issue consequences if it's not done properly, or just remain relaxed and allow them to hand up the messy, rushed and imcompleted work?
I feel it's so important to set up healthy homework patterns at an early age but I also don't want him to loathe it either.
