Homework can be a very emotionally charged topic, as the volume of work expected to be done at home creates time management challenges for parents and students alike, starting at very early ages. The social and extra curricular schedules of children and families make very little room for homework or down time. Many parents are working long hours, only to be confronted with children challenged or upset about getting the homework done.
So I asked our learning expert, Bonnie Terry, to help us get some perspective on the value of homework and how to prepare children, especially the learning challenged, to handle it well. Terry is a best-selling author of Family Strategies for ADHD Kids, Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills, and Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills and one of the co-authors of Amazing Grades is with us today. She is a Board Certified Educational Therapist and internationally recognized as America’s Leading Learning Specialist and the founder of BonnieTerryLearning. Her curriculum materials are used world-wide. Bonnie is also the host of Learning Made Easy Talk Radio and is a frequent media guest. Bonnie is a mother of 3 gifted kids who also happened to have ADHD and several learning problems.
