Being a parent in today's world is challenging enough, let alone the nightly tug-of-war over homework that many parents experience. Cell phones, video games, texting, and social media are all vying for your child's attention, and many of those distractions seem much more attractive to your children than homework assignments.
We all know that homework, however, is extremely beneficial to your child's educational success. In addition to teaching your child about time management and developing good study habits, homework gives your child another opportunity to master skills by practicing what was covered in class. When students work independently to successfully complete homework assignments, they will learn the value of taking responsibility for their own work.
