How do we say, "made someone do something" in Korean?

For example:
"I made him finish his homework before going out to play".
"I didn't want to do it. My mother made me do it."
"This song always makes me very sad."

My attempt
나는 그가 숙제를 다끝아게돼서 밖에 놀아는 허각에줐었어요.
나는 하고싶지않았어요. 엄마가 나를 하게돼었어요.
이노래가 나를 항상 슬픈 니낌 돼었어요.
