Homework can bring up lots of feelings in our kids with big emotions, including frustration, stress, and overwhelm. While we’d like our children to do homework without drama, what do we do when they won’t listen to logic or finish without fighting us every step of the way?
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why our children struggle to complete their homework, even if they know how to do it
- One tool that can help our children stay on task (without nagging or fighting)
- How homework can teach our kids lifelong skills that will help them find success in the long run — and strengthen our parent-child relationship along the way!
