As soon as school starts, the child and his/her parents have to contend with the challenges posed by the dreaded topic of ‚homework’. Does homework make sense? Does it help the child to develop? Parents and children face these challenges in equal measure. To what extent should parents provide support? When should the child begin to do his/her homework on their own? Are homework assignments a cumbersome chore or a means to gain knowledge? Question upon question.
After a demanding day at work, having to work on homework assignments with your child in the evening is and remains a challenge that quickly becomes overwhelming. Often, the pressures of everyday life do not allow for homework to be carried out in a calm setting. This is an unsatisfactory situation for the child and for the parents alike.
