Summary
"Homework gets a bad rap these days. Overscheduled kids (and parents) complain that it's pointless busy work without academic value. The truth is, homework offers our kids the opportunity to learn much more than what will be "on the test"--including essential life skills and learning habits that will help them succeed in the highly competitive job market of tomorrow. These skills include concentration and focus, time management, decision-making, goal-setting, and self-discipline. This practical and parent-friendly book presents a blueprint for navigating the maze of homework, media use, and the stress of everyday routine, getting beyond the daily struggle to harness the true value of homework. Presenting eight critical skills kids need to master, as well as a 21-day challenge for parents and kids, this book combines rigorous research with time-tested hands-on techniques to help kids thrive, academically and beyond"--
