Episode Description

After holding it together for seven long hours, your child arrives home from school mentally and emotionally depleted. He is exhausted, hungry, and in need of a release. But instead, he’s got homework… and that is a huge stress for the whole family.

Here, educational consultant Ann Dolin, M.Ed., shares some of her tried-and-true, research-based strategies for guiding your child efficiently and effectively through homework — and teaching him the skills to begin leading himself independently. Would life be better without homework? Quite possibly. Will you reduce stress and drama by using these techniques? Almost certainly.

Listen and learn from educator and author Ann Dolin, M.Ed., about:

  • Novel and effective approaches for helping distractible kids get started and remain on-task
  • How to set up an effective homework space
  • Why executive functioning skills are so important when it comes to homework and studying
  • How to maintain and promote on-task behavior during homework time
  • Communication techniques to optimize motivation, limit power struggles, and foster resiliency
  • How to stay calm and supportive during homework sessions
