That is what they push, I say BS. I grew up in the 60's, parents were involved nightly with the assigned homework / reading, so I was prepared for the next day. If you slacked you caught hell the next day. But it was a motivational talking to. I will also add it was an off base, mostly Navy neighborhood. We didn't have an option, "You will do...." started every sentence. Parents use smart phones as pacifiers instead of spending time with their children now. I see the result of that with the students I attempt to teach basic electrical. Their text book & software costs close to $400. Most can't comprehend the material and give up. Sadly, the material isn't at the collegiate level.
