To many parents, homework time is the most stressful part of the day. Youngsters will claim they can't do it, don't want to do it, haven't any, etc. This book is designed to help parents (and their children) with a unique plan from the Human Development Clinic in Washington, D.C. It teaches organizational and management skills. The beginning chapter describes mind-mapping, a technique for brain-storming, organizing, planning, and more. Next, a six-week plan is carefully explained; how much homework to expect, how to plan projects, make schedules, keep a homework journal, recognize a learning style. The goal is to make the child take charge of her or his own learning in a positive, motivated way. There is a section on parent-teacher relationships. A good purchase for parents and libraries serving them.-- Annette V. Janes, Hamilton Lib., Mass.
