How can parents help their kids succeed—not just do well 'on the test,' but develop the learning habits they'll need to thrive throughout their lives?

This important and parent-friendly book presents new solutions based on the largest study of family routines ever conducted. The Learning Habit offers a blueprint for navigating the maze of homework, media use, and the everyday stress that families with school-age children face by turning those 'stress times' into opportunities to develop the eight critical skills kids will need to succeed in college and in the highly competitive job market of tomorrow.
