Few things cause boys (and their families) as much stress as HOMEWORK.

In many cases, homework battles turn into outright power struggles — with no winners.

In this episode, Jen & Janet discuss:

  • Why boys struggle with homework
  • The impact of homework on boys’ academic achievement
  • What to do about “meaningless” homework
  • How a “too cool for school” attitude can interfere with learning
  • Why arguing about homework might not be the best use of your time and energy
