The Homework Battle-- neat article-- "If you carry more of the worry, fear, disappointments, and concern than your child does about his work, ask yourself “What’s wrong with this picture and how did this happen?” (Remember, as long as you carry their concerns, they don’t have to.)"-- I think it applies to much more than just homework.
