Whose school career is it? If they don’t do their homework they are the ones to face the consequences. They need to be intrinsically motivated. I relinquished ownership of homework a long time ago, and the power struggle that accompanied it.
They are only 8 and 9. This timeframe is about instilling good work patterns, and it’s on us to help them. As we progress it moves more to them, but, for now, it’s a joint effort.
