Is homework a hassle in your household?
You are not alone! Children love to learn, and learn naturally. They learn through play, the behaviour of the people around them, and from their own experiments. But formal learning is sometimes not so interesting to young people, and practicing skills, or doing more school work after a long day at school can feel hard.
Getting homework done is often a topic of great tension in families. Homework is one of those perpetual challenges for parents (and children!). Whatever you think about whether there is any point, it’s something that we have to manage once our children hit school.

Madeleine brings a wealth of experience
Madeleine is the parent of a teen who has been using and teaching Hand in Hand for over 30 years. You can find out more here. This is what parents have said about her:
“I’ve done a lot of parenting courses, and read a lot of books. In one session, Madeleine communicated a picture of why my children behave as they do which made more sense of what is going on than anything else I’ve come across. She offered practical strategies and approaches that I will go home and try. I’m looking forward to learning more.”
Mother of 5 y.o twins & 9 year old, Wiseman’s Ferry, NSW, Australia
“I liked being reminded that we are all good parents. The talk was structured around our questions and I wish we had longer – I could always take more listening to you, Madeleine. I really enjoyed today’s session.”
