(I’ll be adding more and more over time so check back if you don’t see the one you want.
Or leave a comment and I be able to squeeze in some time to create new ones based off reader feedback.). I’d love a re-pin or facebook share if you’re willing. I hope one of the ones below, whether you use rewards or eschew them, works for your family and each specific child no matter what parenting style you use in your home!
For the kids, of course, it’s mostly sadness that the hazy lazy days of a hot summer have come and gone.
It’s back to school and “too much homework” as they always say.

I’m not saying any of the either of the above approaches are more correct than the other, to each their own and every child needs to be parented in the way that suits them best.
But I’m definitely not going to lose it if my kids miss a day of homework.
For myself, as a Mom of a growing brood, there are the pros: first day of school signs and pictures, cute back to school clothes, quieter and more productive days, etc.
But with the start of school, there is also the realization that I only get so many fun summers with my little ones before they want to hang out with their friends more than Mom.
