On this episode, Angela and Kristin talk about one of those frustrating parenting scenarios that goes something like this: “Jordan, it’s time to start homework….Jordan, you need to start your homework…Jordan, get going on homework!!” Starting tasks, especially those which are non-preferred, can be hard for kids (and parents too). Homework, chores, and many other things we need our kids to do can cause stress for the family. Angela and Kristin talk about what might be causing this “not getting started” behavior and strategies to address it.
