comment How can I help my son be more independent with his homework?
I agree. A preteen or teenager deserves more space (both to work, and to fail) but having them work in a common area of the home with a parent nearby is sometimes useful, especially if OP is only beginning to establish homework as a solo activity.

How old is your son? What sort of assignment is it (math, language arts, etc)? Did he want you to do some of the homework for him or was that your idea (to ensure it just got done somehow)?

I've incorporate the meat of your comments into the Question. (Edits are for changing the question content, not disputing closure, just fyi.) Please feel free to change anything that you don't feel accurately represents the intent of your original.

If you edit your question to add that detail, it will likely be reopened. It was some hours between when you first asked, when some clarifying comments were asked, and then many hours later it got closed as a duplicate -- I wish you'd been here to add details sooner :)

comment How do you raise an intelligent and happy daughter in a sexist world?
Actually, literally teaching her how to fight (preferably through a structured martial arts or boxing class) can be a big confidence builder, too :) Great answer!

comment Is non-professional homeschooling detrimental to children?
I think that worse outcome is too broad -- parents choose to homeschool for a variety of reasons (quality of schools, child behavior, bullying by peers, content of curriculum, special needs, etc.), and the long-term effects probably depend heavily on that motivation. Also, seeking personal experiences instead of studies will be heavily biased towards parents who homeschool (my experience with public schooled children feels irrelevant) -- and to some extent studies may be biased as well, depending on who's funding them and how they control, but hopefully there is less vested interest there.

It seems like she's definitely got good pattern recognition. (I assume you say something like, "Find an A" and she points?) Are you more interested in encouraging her to speak and pronounce words, or reading, or what the next natural development milestones might be?

I don't think they meant waning as in "the older kids start getting sicker" but rather the sick days even out.
