Kids are more successful in school when parents take an active interest in homework - here are ways to help.
First, talk to your child's teacher, with the assumption that he or she wants what's best for your child. Often teachers are unaware of the havoc that homework is causing. If that doesn't work, talk to the principal about your concerns. She may agree and set policy changes in motion. Or, you may need to involve other parents and go to the school board. It may not be simple to stem the tide of homework, but parents around the country are showing it can be done.
