Homework, the Brain & CLD
What it does to Mental Health
3-Credits | 45 Hours
The researcher who recommends ten minutes nightly per grade never found evidence to support it. That researcher, Harris Cooper found the opposite, “there is no evidence that homework improves academic performance.” The tragedy is homework has caused good parents to force children to stop activities that are evidence-based, like time playing, outside, time talking, and interacting with people and a bedtime. The academic benefits come when we eat dinner with the family, maintain a bedtime routine, engage in music training, read a book by choice! No need to nag or grade traditional homework, instead know what actually works. You will change your life, your student’s and each parent’s life!
Step 1: Getting Started
Pick the class that’s right for you. Each class comes with step-by-step directions including: 1) How to watch or attend class, 2) Completing all course requirements, 3) Registering with the University of your choice, and 4) Requesting transcripts.
Step 2: Completing Class

Keep a reflection and log the hours spent applying this content, then submit to us by email. 3-credit classes require 45 hours of engagement, 1 credit classes require 15 hours of engagement (including class time).
Step 3: Receiving Credit
After submitting independent application, within 5-7 days, you will receive a confirmation email that your grade has been entered with the university of your choice. You will then be able to request transcripts. Transcript delivery is generally 5-7 days and is available for expidite.
“You said this during class and it really stuck with me because I am FINALLY learning in this past year or so that: “I am worth staying charged”. I was taught as a kid to feel guilty for resting, for taking time for me. I was also taught that working super hard is where we get our value – unfortunately through our deeds, not our beautiful existence. As I drove home yesterday and was going to cancel my workout because I needed to do xyz other thing, I immediately told myself that I’m worth it. That it’s okay to take 30 minutes, feel better/stronger/happier and THEN get things accomplished.”
“Your classes are always so actionable, packed with takeaways. Thank you for helping to revitalize my energy at the end of a busy school year. Perfect timing!”
“Thanks again for helping me remember that I’m in charge of what makes me happy and how to stay healthy”
