Here's a description of the workshop: If the thought of homework time causes you as a parent to feel anxious, or if it makes you feel as though you must prepare for battle every night, this workshop will offer some very concrete and specific solutions to the problem. Join us to learn two general key tools parents can use to help overcome the obstacles homework presents to the smooth functioning of families, to address some specific homework problems, and to learn strategies parents can use to lessen the stress of homework time.
