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.

DD's in year 2, so 3rd year of school.
I just tell her to do it... and whether or not she listens isn't my problem. She can get punished at school if she doesn't.
I don't see homework as terribly important though.

We have a set homework time here. Although that said most of my DD who is in year 1 is finishing off a spelling/sentence work sheet she has not completed in class time. She always has a reader and occasionally about 4-6 maths sums or so.
I would encourage him to do it. If he doesn't do it at home he may end up having to stay in and doing it at some stage eg year 2 or 3.
They complain a lot less about it now, but it has taken until this term for them to know that homework time is just that.
