Get Kids To Do What You Want Without A Battle

A little research project turned out to be a huge parenting lesson.

When one of my children did well or poorly on a school assignment, I could tell the minute I looked at the paper before I knew the grade. When the paper was neat, the grade was good. When the paper was messy, the grade was not what they had hoped for. So I began my very own research project.
