"An invaluable resource for frustrated parents, The Homework Trap offers a thoughtful reexamination of traditional approaches to homework non-compliance. It is written in a conversational, easy to understand style. It should be required reading for all teachers, school counselors, and principals. " Dr. Kathy Vatterott, Author of Rethinking Homework.
"By suggesting a term, homework-trapped, and by situating homework problems as ‘under the radar’ learning problems, Goldberg helps us see that homework problems develop over time and that they are educational problems, NOT moral or behavioral problems. In this way, Goldberg moves the homework debate into some new and important territory. And he also helps the thousands of families who fight each night over homework. Where was this book when my son was growing up?" Dr. Etta Kralovec, Co-author of The End of Homework.
"Bravo to Kenneth Goldberg for focusing his clinical psychologist's eye on the problems with homework. Goldberg explains why you fight over homework, why the fight isn't worth it, and how to change the pattern." Sara Bennett, Co-author of The Case Against Homework.
"This is a great book for parents and teachers facing that most difficult of problems—homework...I recommend the book highly to everyone who cares about children." William Crain, Ph.D. Professor of Psychology, City College of New York
