Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love spending time with family and friends, eating entirely too much delicious food and reveling in the fact that they haven't figured out how to turn the holiday into a commercial-gift-buying-debt-creating extravaganza. After hundreds of years, Thanksgiving is still a simple day of thanks- and football.

What I don't like about Thanksgiving (besides the dishes) is homework. Unfortunately, millions of students and their families will have to deal with homework this week. It was after one year of my daughter spending the afternoon upstairs studying instead of hanging out with her family that I put my foot down about vacation homework.

You and your children deserve a break from school- including homework. Here's how to deal with vacation homework  so that your family can return to your regular routine rested and rejuvenated.

Good luck.  Happy Thanksgiving and try not to eat too much!
