Many studies show that our children are overwhelmed with homework – and really need time to play, regardless of what author Amy Chua proposes in Battle Hymn of the Tiger MotherChinese Biographies & Memoirs) . Try to make sure that even if your child has homework, that they take some time to play after school.
