Your child is NOT lazy

Your child is NOT lazy. Sure, you may feel like you’re seeing the signs: he rushes through his homework, he does just enough to get by, and he puts things off until the very last minute. But it’s unlikely it’s laziness that’s getting in his way. The key is in diagnosing what’s behind his procrastination and lack of motivation. Perhaps he’s overwhelmed, has trouble initiating tasks, doesn’t understand the assignment, or doesn’t even know what the assignment is! Identify where he’s getting stuck and problem-solve from there much more successfully.
