Right now, you're spending more time negotiating about homework than actually doing homework.
You're already dreading homework this school year and I get it - the amount of homework kids bring home can be overwhelming. Remember last year...
Starting (and finishing) homework was always a fight
Your kids refused to do their assignments some nights and the consequences didn't work
Every bit of homework felt like a battle
What you really want is to help your kids:
Start homework on their own without having to constantly nag them,
Develop a love of learning instead of crying and fighting about homework, and
Become more responsible and self-sufficient.
Your family CAN have all of this... and I have the very thing to help you get there!
Over the course of 5 days, the Drama-Free Homework Challenge will help you teach your kids the skills they need to be more responsible, motivated, and self-sufficient, by giving you a clear plan and 3-minute daily activities to help implement.

I know that you're stressed & exhausted right now. I get that way, too.
Hey, I'm JoAnn Crohn, M.Ed, the founder of No Guilt Mom and mom to 2 kids. When I became a mom, I felt such pressure to do ALL the things and that stress made me frustrated and resentful. If you feel that way right now, you’ve found your place!
I created this challenge to give you confidence, skills, and to connect you with other moms struggling with raising more independent kids. Join me LIVE for 5 days and learn EASY, actionable steps to help your kids be more independent, motivated & responsible about homework!

Here's all the details:
The 2022 Drama-Free Homework Challenge is taking place Wednesday, August 17th through Tuesday, August 23rd. Each session will be taught LIVE at 10:00 AM Pacific and lasts about 30 minutes. If you can't attend live, sessions will be recorded and available for viewing at your convenience in your Member Hub.
From the comfort of your home, wherever you are - all ONLINE so you can even attend in your pjs!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each day, you'll attend one live 30-minute session taught by me, JoAnn Crohn, M.Ed. Each session will start with an overview of that day's topic, an actionable 3-minute activity you can use to apply what you've learned, and time to chat and interact with other challenge participants.
The benefit of a live challenge is that I can answer all of your questions and give you solutions for your unique family situation. This is for parents of kids in grades Kindergarten through high school.
You'll also get LIFETIME access to the challenge recordings and a workbook to help you organize your thoughts and create a plan that's easy to implement and follow through on.
Here's what people have had to say about our homework challenges....
Your R.E.A.D.Y. 5-Day Challenge Plan
Day 1: React Rationally
Let’s face it - it's hard to stay calm when your child is melting down over homework. On Day 1, you’re going to dig deep to figure out your typical response during homework drama and put a plan in place to react rationally.
Day 2: Evade Emotional Blowouts
When your kids are refusing to do homework or emotionally exploding from overwhelm, it can be hard to figure out the best way to calm & refocus them in the moment. On Day 2, you'll learn the right way to console your child and how to address the issues behind those big emotions.
Day 3: Aim for Self-Compassion
As a parent, it's never easy seeing your kids struggle. That’s why we’re going to acknowledge that hardship on Day 3, take note of any self-criticizing you've been doing, and practice self-compassion - which you'll then use to help keep your patience when it's homework time.
Day 4: Develop the Relationships
When our kids have a problem with schoolwork, we often want to jump right in and fix it for them - but in the long run, it’s better for your kids (and you) if they address problems on their own. On Day 4, you’ll learn a simple method to boost your kids' confidence in confronting issues directly.
Day 5: Yield the Work
How do we make homework our kids' responsibility instead of our own? By giving them the tools to focus and motivate themselves and then being there to offer support. On our final day of the challenge, you''ll create a plan to make this school year DRAMA FREE with zero fights!
The challenge will run from Wednesday, August 17th through Tuesday, August 23rd, 2022. We kick off on Wednesday the 17th at 10 AM Pacific with our first live session.
The private Facebook community opens Monday, August 15th.
DO I NEED TO HAVE FACEBOOK TO PARTICIPATE?
Nope! Since all sessions are taking place via Zoom, you do not need to have Facebook to participate.
However, there will be exclusive events and giveaways only accessible in the Facebook group (as well as lots of other parents just like you!) so we highly encourage you to join us in the FB group as well as on Zoom.
ARE THE PRESENTATIONS LIVE?
YES! All sessions are taking place LIVE at 10 AM Pacific via Zoom. This gives you an opportunity to chat with other attendees and ask JoAnn your burning questions.
WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE IT LIVE?
Every session will be recorded. As a challenge participant, you will have lifetime access to all of the recordings, as well as the challenge workbook.
