I introduced the folks from Triangle Parenting Support a couple of weeks ago.

The group, made up of former counselors with Wake County public schools, offers workshops, counseling, therapy and more for kids and parents. They focus primarily on kids ages 0 to 10.

For the next several weeks, they'll be offering some tips on parenting. And this week, Dee Bostick, a licensed professional counselor and registered play therapist, offers some advice on homework, often a battleground for kids and parents. Bostick is an award-winning counselor with more than 25 years of experience as a school counselor, teacher and preschool director. She's a mom too.

Bostick says it's never too early to get started on the right foot when it comes to homework. Developing good study habits in even the youngest students is an important step toward a life of good study skills. She offers some really easy tips for doing just that.

Learn more in the video. Find links to more tips from Triangle Parenting Support in the box. And find out more about what Triangle Parenting Support, with offices in Raleigh and Chapel Hill, offers on its website.

Check back next Wednesday for more tips from Bostick.
