Would you like to ban homework and instead give your teen an hour of meditation practice?
Actually one of the most prestigious girls' schools in Great Britain considered doing just this in an attempt to tackle the 'epidemic' of teenage depression and anxiety.
And it's a fair point, isn't it?
But let's just assume that homework isn't going the way of the dinosaurs anytime soon, if ever. It's just one more demand for our teens to juggle along with extra curricular activities, family time, chores, time with friends and maybe even a part time job.
Our teens need to be organized to juggle those demands.

If you’ve ever wondered, ‘how do I help my disorganized teenager get less stressed over homework?’, this is for you.
If you've ever wondered 'how do I avoid getting another phone call from that obnoxious Spanish teacher who makes me feel like parental-garbage because my teen forgot to work on their past tense verbs again?', this is for you.
