Should You Supervise Homework?

The Deccan Herald has an interesting article on homework here.   My take on it:

I really agree that young children should not be given much, if any, homework. And, after teaching high school for 35 years, and having many conversations about homework with my students, I also agree that all kids are different.    I don't know of any students, however, that were still doing well by high school who had parents who were still supervising homework.   A warm interest in your child's work is good, but setting up times to study and overseeing the work usually is counter-productive.
