This was a fantastic article. I remember especially the point about help. My dad used to "help" me write my essays, and my teacher once asked me about a sentence in a piece "I" wrote. She let me off the hook when I didn't know what she was talking about - because I worked hard -- but it won't be a mistake I will make with my kids.
I think building study habits is the most important aspect of assisting with homework. I've heard about online tutoring (for those subjects I am weak in, and cannot help with) - do you agree with this article?
Let me know, or I may just have to relearn all my high school math.
Regards and thanks for the article. Elie
