Homework! It’s the first thing we ask our kids about in the morning and the first point of conflict every night. Do you have it? How much? Is it done? When’s it due? Why didn’t you do that yesterday? It’s a burden for many families, and the research is clear: when homework is a struggle, it’s a stress point for kids and parents alike.
Whether you’ve got a kindergartener bringing home a “packet” every week or a high schooler with a heavy work load, sometimes you get the sense that something’s not right. As your evening hours spiral down the familiar drain of frustration, tantrums or work that seems endless, many parents find ourselves surveying our child’s homework and asking—is it the homework, or is it my kid?
New from New York Times journalist KJ Dell’Antonia, Is It the Homework, or Is It My Kid? helps you to answer that question, and then offers clear guidance to help you in advocating for your child’s school success. Don’t let homework ruin your child’s love of learning or your relationship with your child. You can make things better—here’s how.
