Now that the school year and fall activities are underway, homework is starting to build up. Do you have a homework battlefield on your hands? Are you trying to figure out how to get your kids into a routine? Are you wondering if you should just stay out of the way let your kids figure it out on their own? Or are you wondering whether to be a rebel and just throw homework out the window? In Episode 10 of Edit Your Life, Asha and I share 10 tips on how to handle homework.
