WHY PARENTS SHOULD LOVE THE HOMEWORK TRAP!
More family time:
By setting limits on how much time is spent doing homework, you become free to use your evening in the ways in which you want.
Less fear of failing:
Modified penalties reduce the risk that your child will fail for homework noncompliance alone. This reduces your anxiety and leaves you free to calmly work toward helping your child.
More authority with your child:
Parents are the natural heads of their homes. If your child is having homework problems, you need to address them from your own point of view. This will make you a more effective parent, not just over homework, but over other issues in your home as well.
