Simple strategies to take the hassle out of homework and help your child succeed at school.
From the Back Cover
All parents want their children to get the most out of school
and to acquire the knowledge and skills that will stand them
in good stead for later life. But with an ever-expanding
curriculum, increasing class sizes, and the lure of TV and
computer games, parents are sometimes at a loss as to how to
help their children.
In Calmer, Easier, Happier Homework, parenting expert Noël Janis-Norton, shows how parents can help their children develop the skills
and resources they need to succeed.
A former classroom teacher, Noël offers practical strategies on everything from establishing good homework habits to encouraging even the most reluctant reader to love books. Calmer, Easier, Happier Homework is a practical programme that will transform your

This particular book provides a useful framework for thinking (as a parent) about homework & how to support your child (or teen) in doing their best with the least resistance. Again, the main idea that I found immensely useful is creating a predictable structure- say, 1 hour a day at a particular time that suits the family- where homework is done, even from an early age. This includes holidays and weekends (except perhaps Sundays) and becomes part of the normal, expectable routine for the family.
Janis-Norton then goes through specific areas that have to do with learning (spelling, handwriting, reading, reading comprehension, listening, thinking and many others) & offers many useful tips as to how to help children with each area. Given her education background, she really knows her stuff & I found her way of thinking so helpful in understanding how best I can help my child, what techniques to adopt, what not to do etc. Since we started using her methods for homework each day, we've seen great results in terms of cooperation & motivation- and also, in terms of our son's ability to learn and to enjoy the process.Read more ›
It is not just about school homework, although that features a lot, but about reading, spelling, listening, writing, and helping children to think for themselves I liked in particular the use of " trailing sentences" to help with comprehension.I have already put into practice some of the skills and they all work with my daughter Lily, aged nine.
