    Excellent Book for Parents

    This book was extremely helpful in working with my 9-year-old. Rather than just tips and tricks for homework hassles with your kid, this book teaches PARENTS how to better guide their children so - methodically in turn - children magically start accepting their responsibilities, which in the end prepares them for responsible adulthood. The more you hound, the more you 'hover,' the more you check on them, the more you worry for them, the less they do themselves, which progressively makes them more dependent on you and less on themselves. This theory took me by surprise, as I wanted to be extremely involved with my child's work in school. But I had no idea I was actually hindering her growth and understanding of responsibility and accountability. The book also offers help for parents and children with consistent homework problems, attitudes and resistance. Excellent and easy-to-read.

    Parent Alert!

    I found this book particularly refreshing. It is well written and for once is a book that discusses how students should assume the responsibility for their homework and school performance. I wholeheartedly agree with the author who writes from common sense. This book is one that I will recommend to parents who are pulling their hair out trying to get their kids to do their homework. It reinforces the teacher's authority and doesn't misplace the blame on the teacher.

    Very Helpful and Practical Advice Given

    I really enjoyed his advice and examples on how to handle homework situations. I bought this book in anticipation of when my DD starts having homework, and it was a great idea because it gives me a good foundation to start with so I'm not struggling later and wondering why. This book and his Six Points book are the best parenting books I've read so far.
