Hi There,I have a 15 year old son who just refuses to do homework and this is now his 2nd year in grade 6? How do I make him understand the importance of having an education?
Hello Shuaib, thank you for your question. When I read it the first time I picked up that your son might be experiencing difficulties either at home or at school. It might be learning related because he is already 15 years old and still in grade 6 which shows a relative backlog. Also the fact that he refuses to do his homework could mean that he has difficulty understanding what is expected of him. It could be of help to also contact his teacher and discuss his overall functioning in the classroom to get an understanding of whether he has a learning challenge. I suggest that you before you could touch on the importance of education he needs to understand the importance of him by sitting him down and discussing your concerns with him in a non-judgemental way and really listening to what he is saying and feeling. This might enable you to get to the real reason why he is not progressing at school. The Parent Centre
