The Parent _ Homework Divide

Very interesting message and follow-up discussion over on the Washington Post site. The topic: what's the right amount of homework? And what's the parent's role in that homework? Lots of strong feelings in this debate.

As a dad, I found this quote eye-opening:
"In two-parent households, there is a perception gap between parents regarding a father's involvement in homework assistance. Sixty-seven percent of fathers claim to help with their children's homework; however, mothers say fathers help approximately 36 percent of the time. Sixty-nine percent of mothers say they help with homework, and fathers tend to agree, with 56 percent of fathers noting their wives' assistance."
