As a teacher and parent of three, I found Homework Without Tears to be an excellent book on the subject. The problems most often encountered with children on this topic ("forgetting", not doing their best, refusing to do assignments, etc. are each dealt with individually in a systematic way. The book is very clear in stating the importance of homework in learning responsibility, and that parents must stand firm no matter the age of their children. Consequences are also discussed. Includes helpful charts/checklists.

I like this book for the way it gives you several options to try if your child is having homework completion issues. Talk them over with your child before using them. There are several blank forms that you can reproduce at the end of the book, including a "Do Not Disturb" sign, or you can find forms on the internet, or even make up your own. There are several good tips on good study habits and how to plan out long-range projects such as reports.

There is a trend with the schools now where they want the parent to check off that this or that has been done, and many schools are requiring "official" student planners. I feel that planners and other aids are fine and actually useful for some students, but for other students and their parents, they can be an unnecessary annoyance, and as a parent, unless there is a problem with the *real* schoolwork being done, tell the teacher that as a good parent, you are not going to be micromanaging.

I think this book, with its concrete "how-to" approach is a great fit with the John Rosemond book, "Ending the Homework Hassle--which has excellent arguments for why parents should NOT micromanage that you can enlighten your child's teacher with.

I looked at the copyright page here on Amazon, and it does not appear to have been revised any since the original pubication date of 1987, so buying used is just fine too.

This book is worth its weight in gold! I was struggling to get my 8 year-old son to do his homework, and then I found help in this book. It's quick and easy to read, and full of useful suggestions and positive plans to teach your child healthy homework habits. The authors teach that praise and assertive communication are effective tools to motivate your child. They also stress the importance of communication with your child's teacher. Because of the authors' advise, my son now has a dedicated homework area (a desk in his room), and a mandatory homework routine (homework is finished before any TV or video games). The results are that he gets his homework done on time, and with good quality, or he loses privileges for things he enjoys. And guess what? It works. I highly recommend this book for any parent who's tired of the nightly homework battle.

I was recommended this book so to help us with our daughter and our constant fighting over homework. I'm normally skeptical about books that are to help you raise your kids, but I was at the end of my rope and thought what the heck! The book is an overnight read that really helped! It tells you how to structure study time, what to say and what not to say to your child by giving examples of conversations that you swear are right from your house. And the best part is that it tells you exactly what to do to help you create a better study time based on your childs attitude toward homework/school.

Basic, old, tried and true methods. I'm a retired teacher, just now experiencing homework from the other side with my grands.
The Lee Canter method has been around for 30 years. This has not been updated, but it's a good place to start.

If your child hates homework and struggles with how to get it over with every day...this is the perfect book. I was able to turn my ten year old son around and now he does his homework without throwing a fit.

I bought this for my daughter as her daughter, my grand-daughter aged 6, is struggling at school with literacy and numeracy. Her concentration levels are poor. My daughter has only read a few chapters but is already using some of the tips and they have made a tremendous difference. Homework is definitely more peaceful these days. Some of the tips are just commonsense which I had previously suggested to my daughter, but it seems if it comes from someone unrelated it is much more useful and sensible advice! Thanks for a very helpful book. Twink.

We got this book when our oldest was in grade school - he graduated this year and is doing well in college. This book was a lifesaver that we have shared with several other families throughout the years. If you are struggling with a kiddo that doesn't do their homework/turn in homework that is completed/write down assignments . . . this will definitely give you the tools to help them be SUCCESSFUL.
