Has homework created a battle between parents, children, and teachers?

Where is the joy of learning amidst the math problems and book reports coming home to families in their children’s backpacks? Can we make it fun? What about other interests? In this podcast from Six Seconds, May Duong and I talk to two teachers at Synapse, Six Seconds’ laboratory school about their attitude about homework, and we reflect on our own challenges as parents.

Enjoy this short discussion. Part of our regular audio podcast, Raising Humans.
