LOVE this video! :-) Thanks.
Oooops! In my comment below, that should be "Adding" to the "learning independence" concept, not "Sdding".
As an ADHD coach and father whose children have ADHD, along with other co-morbid issues, though I really like the concepts of this video, I'm concerned it may mislead parents of children whose brains are wired differently. Concepts such as "Get rid of the desk" and "Children need to learn independence" are great!!! The video, however, shows children doing homework with a lot of distracting things in the background, depending on the child of course. So, I love these ideas, but think they represent only part of the solution. Sdding to the "learning independence" concept, one of the greatest aspects of independence is learning to make choices. I would like to suggest that having an ongoing conversation with your child about where they think they should do their homework and why they think so could be of great benefit. Also, require them to keep a log: how often off task, how long in that position, how long it took, why they did (or not) like it. Help them use it to make good choices.
When assigning homework it is important for students to be able to do the work independently therefore new concepts should not be introduced through homework. Teachers need to be very clear about how much the parent should "help" with homework.
