Eliminating the Homework Wars (DVD)
Does your child dawdle, stall, complain, and even act incompetent about their homework (or other chores)? Do you care more than he/she does? This video will teach you positive ways to motivate your child, and eliminate the battles over homework. You can actually stop nagging and have your child choose to do his/her homework.
Incentives – Important, but Not Enough
A general authority was in our stake recently, and at the Saturday evening meeting he said that we should use incentives to help our children do the things they need to do. I whole-heartedly agree, and so does the research in human behavior.
BUT, it takes more than just incentives. There are many aspects of our home environment that affect our children’s willingness to do the things they should be doing.
Joseph F. Smith said, “Our children will be just about what we make them… All that it knows greatly depends upon its environment, the influences under which it is brought up… And it will be largely what its environment and its parents and teachers make it.” This is a basic principle of Behavior Science, or the study of how people react and learn. This video is consistent with Gospel principles, but it is based on the research in human behavior conducted over the last 40 years. From this research, we gained a great understanding how the Homework Wars get started, and how to eliminate them!
