Why Family Homework Answers?

Homework Problems?
What Homework Problems?

I started this site, Family Homework Answers, in June (o8) after conducting a homework training at an elementary school in Berkeley (CA) for teachers. I met some lovely, hard-working and helpful teachers. They were friendly, positive and open to hearing what the parents at their school had shared with me at earlier workshops about homework. They were interested in recent homework studies and welcomed suggestions to help parents deal with their family's homework issues. It was great, but honestly, I meet wonderful teachers all of the time.

What was so amazing and eye-opening to me about this particular training was how hostile and resistant some of these teachers were to even considering that homework was hurting families!

They simply did not want to hear any suggestion that the type and amount of homework they had been assigning to their students was a problem.

It was only a handful of teachers, but these few teaches were worse than any students I have ever had: they attacked the other teachers, tried to shut me up, and when those things did not work, they held loud, cackling conversations in an attempt to drown out the discussion. I was shocked by such rudeness! Three horrible teachers out of 30 great ones may not seem like a lot, but that is still 10%!
Now there is an entire site devoted to helping parents and their children deal with homework. Family Homework Answers is a welcoming place for families to learn, gain some confidence, talk, share ideas and tips, vent...
And, get finished with that homework and start enjoying LIFE!
