January Panel Discussion
Like many parents, you may be wondering about the best way to support your child’s education outside the classroom. You may worry that s/he is not getting enough review or practice at home, or conversely, that s/he is getting too much to work on outside regular school hours. You may worry that homework is causing unrest at home. You may be certain that your child needs downtime after school but still worry how this will affect their future education. Or perhaps you suspect that there’s an alternative way to support your child’s education at home other than review and practice.
The December newsletter is now available.
