Mind the Bandana!

One parent devises a simple, effective solution to forgotten homework.

"My son is allowed to finish homework at school if he fails to finish it the night before. But he kept forgetting this, and his homework was being marked 'Incomplete.' Now we tie a red bandana to his backpack to remind him to 'STOP' and finish his homework from the previous day. It's simple - and it works."

-Nancy Sponholtz, Ringoes, New Jersey
