In the past week, I’ve received a lot of email from parents across the country who’ve started discussing the homework problem with their children’s teachers and among other parents in their children’s classes. Their letters are inspiring. For example, this morning “HM” wrote me:
After gaining insight from your book about how to approach homework overload, I drafted a letter to my daughterâ€™s teacher and received a very positive response from her. She was unaware of the tremendous load she was placing on her students. She was very willing to help balance the work load for my daughter.
At my urging, HM posted his letter in Success Stories.
I’m happy to receive so much mail, and I do my best to respond, but if you have a story you’d like to share and you want to have an ongoing discussion or get feedback from other parents, join the discussion under the heading “Success Stories” in the forum.
