Don't Let Your Parent-Child Relationship Be Defined By This 

Does your child feel like they're behind in class? Do they have a hard time getting and staying organized? Are they unsure of which college entrance exam to prepare for?

Don't let your relationship be defined by grades, power struggles, and arguments over homework. Contact us to see if we can help relieve tension and stress over academics.

We see students falling into categories such as Bright but Disorganized, Subject Struggles, Stressed from Studying, and more. With more than 20 years of working with students in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area, we have found ways to solve some of the most difficult, yet common challenges that cause tension in the home. 
Should Teachers Adopt this Homework Rule?

A second grade teacher from Texas made headlines this summer after she sent home a note to parents, informing them that their students' homework would only consist of materials they did not finish in class that day. She instead encouraged families to spend more time together, rather than spend hours on homework.

So, what is the role of homework and are kids getting too much? Read our blog post to find out how often your child really should be spending on homework.
