I was having some problems with Sean learning the times tables. He came home with a times tables assignment. To encourage him to do the assignment, I offered my autumn leaves stamps with rockets, stars, planets and astronauts as decoration.
This day and age, making the kids do homework is really a work of diplomacy. Can't yell at them or else they will tune out, can't scold them otherwise they dissolve into tears and won't be able to complete the assignment. This I guess is the best way to compromise with them.
Check out the Autumn Leaves stamps on his times table chart. Cute right?
and yes, apologise for the blurry photos but you get the picture.
