I love this book. It's helping me stand strong against all the homework complaining! It has step by step instructions to follow for every homework scenario you can think of. I normally only buy a book when I think I will need it on hand for reference, I'm definitely buying this one!

I liked the book. Didn't love it though. The information was fairly basic and common sense. Different sections applied to children in different grades.

Perhaps the teacher resource I have used more than any other. I picked this up in the mid-1990s and have used pieces from this every year since.

We talk about procedures, finding a place to put the bookbag, where to do homework and why it's a good area, building a homework survival kit, etc.

Setting the expectations at the outset is key to successful years. Homework Without Tears

During my 14 years as a high school counselor, this was the book I most often recommended to parents. I taught workshops based on it and I used the ideas with my own children. If parents have a reasonably good relationship with their children and are consistent in implementing the principles in this book, grades inevitably improve.

As my son transitions from traditional homeschooling to an on-site program, I needed some input regarding homework. This book gives good advice to anyone who wants to help his/her child become more of an independent learner.

Very good advice. The one that really helped us is the structure of doing the homework at a certain time everyday and doing it for a set amount of time. This way they don't rush through the homework.

Good common sense book. I already do 90% of what it suggests, but it is a good motivator to be consistant.

I loved this book. It gave me such great ideas to help my child do his homework. And now I am not yelling and mad all the time. I am calm and able to praise him!

Read this awhile ago. Good tips to encourage kids to be responsible for their own homework.

It was helpful.
