  • Homework is bad

    Homework is bad because it messes up your schedule and its wasting time when have to do something you cant because you have to do homework and you need to relax instead of doing HOMEWORK.When you find something you don't know on your homework you get frustrated and so does your parents cause they don't feel like helping you. And if you get too much HOMEWORK your teachers dont feel like grading it they just give back and you barely learn stuff.

  • Homework Is Good Why?

    Homework Can Make Kids Focus And Enhance Kids Learning Experience And Can Even Make Parents And Teachers Partnership . So, why Might A Parent Fells That Homework Turns Home Into A Battleground. If Kids Didn't Have Homework They Would Fry There Brains And Make Them Not As Smart So kids Can Learn Better. From: A Faith Grader

  • No! It's not good all the time!

    When ppl get home they usually have plans like, sports practice, a trip to a relatives house, ect. And it's not fair that as soon as kids get home they have to keep working. They should be able to relax and spend more time with family. Homework can even increase stress levels with some kids. And to some kids who are gifted it is a waste of time!

  • Homework is a waste of time.

    When you get home, you usually have plans or after school activities. Homework gets in the way of that. Homework is meant to REMIND YOU of what you did that day. It is not meant to be extra work. Homework is a useless use of our time. WE NEED RELAXATION!

  • Homework? No way! :-(

    Yes homework can be good and can possibly help a student learn more but, that is only if that particular student enjoys homework and knowing the kids in my class only like one or two does. I'm sixth grade and the homework we get is either too hard or too easy, and most of us have plans after school. Homework is a pain in the neck, literally! Kids need to learn those concepts at school not at home, their parents are their parents not their teachers! Also, some kids in my class, and also all over the world, might struggle in class, that doesn't mean they have to take it home! They can just stay after school, or in at recess and have the teacher explain to them and help them. Plus, homework is just a huge waste of time and by the time your done it's dinner time! And you only have about two or three hours to play. And now a days even preschoolers are getting homework! That's not cool, at all! Kids need to be kids, that means that they should be able to run, play, and relax not have to think about math. Did you know that 1/3 of kids cheat? And 94% use their phone during class? That's why we should not have more homework.

  • I hate homework >:I

    Kids should deffinitly NOT have homework. It's stressful and annoying. What's the point of going to school to do work, then coming back home to do more? Kids need to be kids. I want to get social with my friends, but I can't. Mum always tells me to do my HOMEWORK. It's taking up my time to be a kid, for god sake. It's also really tiring to be up all night doing something our teacher expects us to do. A lot of kids already have enough on their plate! Teachers should stop expecting too much from us. Kids hate homework.

  • Can be viewed as mechanical work.

    Homework is bad, IF it gets daunting. Unless if the education system were to somehow inspire kids on each of the school subjects each student is taking, then it is certain that kids will complain. Take the US education system(s) for example. According to surveys from OECD, the majority of the kids hate math as of 2012. In Canada, its over 90%. Why? Part of it is because a lot of teachers, most holding a BA, and not a BSci (or similar degrees) do not feel comfortable with the content. Therefore, they may not feel confident in teaching the content. Thus students are less likely to be inspired. When students ask "Why am I learning this?", the teachers can answer, "Because it is important. And if you don't do it, you get detention.", especially in the elementary levels. This can be true in other subjects depending on each situation.

    In addition, learning loss is a concern for students around the world. If students do not apply an advanced skill such as calculus in life, then they will likely forget the content.

    Yes, homework can be beneficial, but only to the best interests of children.

  • Homework is not good

    Homework isn't good because it limits the social time in students life. By doing this we are limiting the advance of our country. By our kids not learning how to socialize we are making our children less proactive in the real world. We are constricting the advance of our country.

  • Your child is gaining several simple skills each time she sits down to do work at home. All four will help her as she matures. 

    Responsibility. — The homework assignment is your child’s responsibility (not yours). When students assume responsibility for their homework and complete an assignment, it is only then that they learn to be accountable for their actions. 

    Time management. — Students complete their assignments or projects on time when they are organized. Turning the project in on time has it advantages because points are not deducted and your child won’t suffer consequences.

    Perseverance. – Homework teaches kids how to deal with adversity. Your child can take pride in finishing an assignment regardless of difficulties or problems.

    Self-esteem. — Completing homework in a timely manner will help your child develop trust and self-confidence. The inspiration to work harder on the next project occurs when kids feel good about their accomplishments. 

    9 How-to-Study Tips

    Parents are team members on the homework front. You can create a positive atmosphere for your child by following these nine simple tips.

    • Organization is a must. Get your child organized by developing a schedule for homework assignments, projects, and tests. Post all homework assignments and projects on a wall calendar (or the refrigerator, as I did) for easy viewing. Share your email address with teachers in order to stay up-to-date on important assignments, special projects, and tests. Check your school’s website regularly for homework updates. Also frequently check your child’s backpack for handouts and messages from the school.

    • When your child does homework, you do homework. Show your child that the skills he is learning now are related to things you do later on as an adult. If your child is reading, you read too; if your child is doing math, balance your checkbook. In other words, work together in harmony and demonstrate as a parent how these new skills relate to adult duties and responsibilities.

    • When your child asks for help, provide guidance, not answers. Giving answers means your child will not learn the material. Too much help teaches your child that when the going gets rough, someone will do the work for him or her.  As parents, we always strive to teach honesty, integrity, and good character. 

    • When the teacher asks that you play a role in homework, do it. Cooperate with the teacher because it shows your child that the school and home are working jointly as a team, and follow the directions given by the teacher. Speak positively about your child’s school and never ever criticize the teacher or principal in front of the child.

    • If homework is meant to be done by your child alone, stay away. Too much parent involvement can prevent homework from having some positive effects. Homework is a great way for kids to develop independent, lifelong learning skills.

    • Stay informed. Talk with your child’s teacher weekly. Make sure you know the purpose of homework and what your child’s class rules are. Additionally, a parent-teacher conference is an excellent time for important people in a student’s life to talk about how that student is doing in school, including conduct, grades, tests, and homework assignments. It’s an excellent opportunity for you to ask questions about the class or your child’s progress. 

    • Watch your child for signs of failure and frustration. Let your child take a short break if he is having trouble keeping his mind on an assignment, and provide plenty of positive reinforcements daily. Also, encourage your child when a task has been completed wrongly. While reprimanding him may be your first response, think carefully before acting. You’ll likely get better results if you provide love and support as you firmly, yet gently correct the issue. 

    • Reward progress in homework. If your child has been working hard or is successful in completing work, celebrate that success with a special event. Enjoy a pizza together, a walk, or a movie to reinforce positive effort.  

    • Pledge to spend quality time with your child.  Yes, as parents we’re faced with financial challenges, underemployment, busy schedules, and other issues that can threaten family time. However, regardless of what you face, remember to spend some quality time with your children each day and ensure that proper “home-learning” takes place.
