Bernadette Pawlik, of NPN, put many of Amanda's techniques into practice. Read what she has to say a month later:
I can't truthfully say that homework is our son's favorite activity---but it has ceased to be his least favorite. In addition to reinforcing his academic skills, my sense is he is developing life skills he can use whatever the work might be throughout his life.Our next event with NPN is right around the corner: The "Successful" Child: Developing Persistence and Independence, coming up on Oct. 22nd.
