Help with the Homework Battle

Here is a link to WAFB’s video archive of my latest Parenting 101 interview, where I simultaneously share some practical wisdom about how to put the responsibility for homework back in your child’s court and drive the sound-guy crazy with my drumming on the table.  Ah, life is fun!  By the way, one of the graphics they showed on-screen had a significant typo.  Here are the key points I brought to the interview:

– Homework is the student’s responsibility, NOT the parent’s!

– Parents CANNOT control kids’ choices (about homework or anything else).

– Parents CAN control consequences.

– Keep school performance expectations reasonable.

– Provide reasonable suffering to induce motivation.

– Canceling text messaging is a great motivator for teens!

Enjoy, be at peace, and be blessed.
