double tap if u hate homework
At the beginning of her kindergarten year, my daughter was given two homework books to take home. The teacher would assign homework from the books every week. They were supposed to be used for the entire school year. But my kindergartener liked doing homework so much that she finished them all in one month! No yelling, screaming, threatening, or crying is required.
Getting your kid to do homework is only the first step in building a good learning habit. Finishing homework or getting good grades is not the purpose of going to school. Instill the love of learning in your child early on and your child will benefit for life.
Some Mac users may encounter a weird issue where they attempt to single click their mouse or trackpad but a double-click is registered instead of the intended single click. This is obviously frustrating since a double-click in the wrong place can perform actions you may not want to perform, like full screening a window or opening an app, folder, or document, or even something more annoying.
If you have noticed that a Mac is erroneously registering double-clicks instead of single clicks of the mouse or trackpad, read on to learn a few ways to troubleshoot the issue and potentially resolve the problem.
The first thing if you suspect this is the case is to insure the Mouse is clean. A grimy mouse stuffed full of gunk, dust, and whatever else can cause clicks to register incorrectly or not register at all. Thus, cleaning the mouse or trackpad surface is a good place to start.
A common software reason that single-clicks are registered as double-clicks, or at least perceived as so, are mouse settings on the individual Mac OS installation. One setting in particular may be helpful to adjust:
same Matt, this just happened to me using a Logitech MX master on my 2017 MacBook Pro. I use them on everything, nothing new about them. I tried changing double click speed. It did nothing. I opened 1 Finder, then changed the double click speed, and then closed the Finder.
Sometimes the double-clicks register instead of a single click because the mouse is failing. A USB mouse is only about $8 though so they are reasonably inexpensive to replace. I had to replace a failing generic USB mouse recently that was exhibiting this double-click behavior, so consider that as a possibility too.
What it does, it pulls up a list of synonyms for each word you double tap: whether within Google Docs, Microsoft Word, LanguageTool's own editor app (available on Windows, macOS and iOS) or a number of other supported web and desktop platforms. It also prompts you to change words that you either overuse or if they're too basic (everyone uses them).
Copy (CTRL+C) the marked space symbol, next press CTRL+F to open a search bar, paste (CTRL+V) it twice (to make a double space) and you will get all the double spaces highlighted, if there are any. If you did manage to press space twice at some point, simply clean it up and you're Gucci.
Roommate matching is completely optional. If you do not have a specific request for a roommate, you may select any available space during Room Selection. What if I need accommodations to my room assignment?If you require accommodations please contact University Housing as soon as possible. We request that you submit your requirements in writing so that we can make every effort to accommodate your needs. If you require accommodations relating to disability, please contact the Student Disability Services at 865-974-6087 or email@example.com. May I have my own room?Single rooms are very limited on campus and are located in Hess Hall and Orange Hall. Single bedrooms are available in Stokely Hall quad private and triple private suites. If we have been able to accommodate everyone that requires housing, and there are vacancies, you may apply to keep your room as a single room or move to a completely vacant room by contacting your hall director. There is an additional charge to rent a double room as a single. If a single room becomes available, you will be notified through your mailbox.
Why was I offered a triple, but I listed doubles?All freshmen have been offered triples. We did have double rooms listed in the application, but due to space availability at the time of offers, all freshmen were offered a triple.
What if I want to change my room?You need to first accept your current offer, then you can submit a Change of Assignment Request (CAR). Please note, CARs are not guaranteed and based on space availability. You will be able to request a change to a double room, but they are very limited.
If the homework struggles you experience are part of a larger pattern of acting out behavior, then the child is resisting to get power over you. They intend to do what they want to do when they want to do it, and homework just becomes another battlefield. And, as on any other battlefield, parents can use tactics that succeed or tactics that fail.
When your kids come home, there should be a structure and a schedule set up each night. I recommend that you write this up and post it on the refrigerator or in some central location in the house. Kids need to know that there is a time to eat, a time to do homework, and also that there is free time. And remember, free time starts after homework is done.
For a lot of kids, sending them to their rooms to do their homework is a mistake. Many children need your presence to stay focused and disciplined. And they need to be away from the stuff in their rooms that can distract them.
If they do homework in their room, the door to the room should be open, and you should check in from time to time. No text messaging, no fooling around. Take the phone and laptop away and eliminate electronics from the room during study time. In short, you want to get rid of all the temptations and distractions.
If you bribe your child to do their homework or to do anything else that is an expected responsibility, then your child will come to expect something extra just for behaving appropriately. Bribes undermine your parental authority as kids learn that they can get things from you by threatening bad behavior. Bribes put your child in charge of you.
Our son struggled with a learning disability, which made the work feel unending at times. My husband James was much better at helping him, so he took on this responsibility. But even with this division of labor, we had to make adjustments to our schedules, our lives, and our expectations to make sure our son did his homework as expected.
Hello, my grandson recently moved with me from another state. He is currently in 8th grade (but should be in 9th). He basically failed the last 2 years and was promoted. I would say he is at a 6th grade level. It's a daily fight with him to do his homework. He won't even try. I know a lot of this is because no one has ever made him do his homework before. I thought he would just have to get in a routine of doing it. He's been in school for a month now and its a fight every single day after school. I have lost all the patience I had. I am tired of being a broken record and being the "bad guy". I don't want to give up on him and send him back to his mom, where I know he will never graduate. I have made so many sacrifices to get him here, but I am literally at my wits end with this. I knew it wasn't going to be easy but I didn't think it was going to be this hard.
My rule is homework after school. If he comes home and does his homework after school, it was easier for him to complete. That lasted a week and a half. Now, he just sits there and does nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions? I couldn't live with myself if I sent him back and he became nothing but a drop out. I know I am not one to have patience, and I am trying but at the same time, I am almost over it. I don't like going to bed crying and knowing that he is crying too. I am open to all suggestions. Please and thank you.
I'm so sorry you are facing these struggles with your grandson. We here from many caregivers in similar situations, so you're not alone in your frustration. We have several articles that offer helpful tips for managing these homework struggles, which can be found here: -categories/child-behavior-problems/school-homework/
Frustrated Confused Parent, I went through similar challenges with my son when he was in high school. As a grade school student his grades were always B and higher. The changes began when his mother and I separated; my son was 12yo. Prior to our separation I was the one who maintained, and enforced the habit of completing his assignments before extracurricular activities could be enjoyed. His mother never felt she had the patience or intelligence to assist him with his homework assignments and upon our separation she completely ignored his school work. Although he continued to follow the structure I had established through grade school, he soon began to realize that no one was showing interest any longer and, thus, began shirking school related responsibilities. My son and I were, and still are, close. I am certain that the separation likely had some affect on him, but it was more than that. He was reaching his teens and becoming more self-aware. Friends began to play a more integral and influential part in his life. Unfortunately my son's grades began slipping as he reached his early teens. For me, this was extremely frustrating since I was aware of how intelligent he was and of what he was capable. After many aggravating, lengthy, heated, and unyielding conversations with his mother about maintaining the structure established through grade school, it became clear she was incapable or simply unwilling. Essentially, he was on his own. Of course I would do whatever I could to help. For starters, I facilitated a transfer to a Charter School, realizing that he needed more individualized attention than that which a public school could provide. It seemed as though he was getting 'lost in the shuffle'.
