Not turning in homework can be a cause for concern.
School can be difficult, especially if your children have to participate in some form of virtual learning. Some kids take to school like a duck in water, with hardly any homework. When they do have school assignments, they can finish quickly and get a good grade. However, other students struggle with academics. That does not mean C-average students all have anxiety. However, when a child doesn’t turn in their homework, it’s because they haven’t done it; however, it could also be because they are worried it isn’t good enough.
Anxiety can often lead to second-guessing, where the child spends so much time questioning their work and answers that it never gets finished. An anxious child might erase his work over and over until there’s a hole in the paper. Children may begin to worry about their homework assignments or upcoming tests much earlier than other students. Worrying about this upcoming assignment for much longer than their peers can often hinder their ability to complete the task at hand. Make sure you keep track of your kid’s projects and if they are turning everything in on time.
