In this episode Neil answers a question from a mother who sees her husband and their 9 year-old son building a power struggle over homework. Mom explains that Dad is a high achiever and very studious and wants to pass that on to his son. Neil helps Mom understand what might be driving her husband’s approach and offers a way to clarify their goals and values and even help Dad feel better about himself as well. Neil challenges the value of homework overall and stresses the importance of not allowing it to turn kids off to school. Have a question for Neil?
