    If your 13 yr old is trying to avoid doing homework, what could you say to ensure that it is done?

    You know the scene.  Your 13 year old says, "Got a headache" /  "We did the same thing last week" / "Teacher will be away tomorrow, and nobody will check it"  /  "It is not as important as the other essay I have to write". . . .  You know these are just excuses.  You know it is important that that work is done. What would you say?

    I have an 8 year old and a 13 year old and my house it's "No homework? Then no bike riding/computer/TV/social media (whichever is most important to them at the time) for a week."

    Try motivation. Pride in a job well done. Tell him/her it's a task for the future, promotion in the workplace, better remuneration for the professional attitude. Instil some enthusiasm for the project, (bring all the big guns into play), and if they say their schoolmates will take the mickey ask where will these schoolmates be in ten years' time when your offspring has a well paid career?
    My three went to university because they were self-motivated. One's due to start her teacher training in September (a 2/1 and Masters under her belt), one's nearly finished his (ditto) and the third is halfway through a PhD in Physics. All three have foreign languages, French, German, Italian. The two younger ones live and work abroad in Europe. How's that for motivation?

    I have to admit that when my kids were that young, I often chose the style of Keith Abt.
    However, I think that Alan Robert Lancaster's method is far more positive.
