Too Much Homework: Reality or Myth
I don't have a school aged daughter yet, but I do have friends who do and I have heard from many-a-parent that there is too much homework for kids. This article though talks about research that shows the actual amount of homework really hasn't increased much over the last 30 years.
What do you Moms of school aged kids think? Does your child get too much homework? How are you helping them cope with how much homework they have?
Maybe a page or read but I think kids should be kids and play after school.
My son would like school much more if there wasn't another hour to two hours every night of it.
It's not that I dislike homework, more so that it seems like busy work. If it was engaging in some way then maybe it wouldn't be so bad, but after a long school day many kids don't want to do worksheets and such.
I have to agree with Jessica. I have a kindergarten and a 1st grader that also goes to school. Also sometimes have to much homework to do. By time they our done. They have little free time.
