Is homework a painstaking chore?

Posted on 3/23/2016 by Greg Yoder

Homework. I hated it when I was a kid, and I don’t like it much now, either. Especially math. Now, as a dad, I’ve always wanted my kids to know that I’m there for them any time they need my help. But have you ever been the focus of your child’s anger and frustration about their homework? I have. One of my kids thought it was okay to lose their temper—at ME—the guy who was trying to help them out. Seriously? Isn’t that what we do when we question God, though? Don’t let it go. Lovingly confront, explain how you think they’re feeling, explain your feelings, and remind them that they’re sinning and they need a Savior. Most kids will feel remorse and change. But, be patient because, sometimes, it takes a while.
