If you recall the article, “How Homework Could Flunk Your Marriage,” I have strong opinions about homework, free time, children’s responsibilities, how you can help your child become more responsible and do more things for themselves, pridefully. You’ll do this by using the techniques that I teach — in the proper order — and using Rewards and Consequences as a last resort. How does all this work, together, to make your child AND your marriage successful? Less stress. More boundaries.
We should all learn more about teaching children, successfully, by studying how Finland does it. This video really summed up some issues that I see in families that I work with all the time.
