Do Children Have Homework

  • I think kids should not have homework

    Kids need time you relax and unwind, if kids have to spend hours on homework then they are going to stay up late causing lack of sleep and making the brain not as capable to learn as usual. They should be able to hang out with friends. Kids need social time.

  • It is so much stress!!!!!!!

    I am a 9th grader and I rarely do homework, but I'm not being lazy. I spend my after school time doing other things like going for a walk, or sometimes doing something important, or sometimes I have a busy day, and sometimes I just need to relax! School often makes me tired and I have to rest a while before doing anything else! When I do my homework, I get frustrated because I have a lot of it. I have 8 classes each day and each class is 45 minutes long and I'm a little slower than others, so I often don't finish my class work in time, so it becomes homework. I also have problems with almost each subject: I get math homework every day and I have problems with doing it because it gets hard and I need help, but my sister and my mom are both dyslexic, making them have a hard time helping me, and my dad didn't learn what I'm learning when he was in 9th grade, so he doesn't know how to do it. If I have homework from my other classes, I have to write an essay or something (this homework is usually from classes like English and Geography) but I can't write something very long unless I'm really passionate about it. And most of all I can't concentrate!!! I recently couldn't finish a final draft of a project I was assigned where I had to write a letter to the ambassador (They weren't really letters to the ambassador, we were just learning how to write a letter to someone in authority) talking about some problem going on in different places in Africa and how we could help. I chose to write about how Nestle is draining South Africa and causing a lot of problems there and that we should put an end to it. But when I got started on it, I couldn't even finish the first paragraph because I couldn't concentrate, and like I said, I rarely do homework, because I usually spend my day doing something else and when I do, I get stressed out, so usually, even the thought of doing homework stresses me out, so I don't do it. I get math homework every day, so I can never get caught up enough, and I'm failing school because of it! My parents don't believe in ADHD medications and neither do I because we did our research and found out that they actually are really bad for you. So tell me, how in any way, is homework supposed to make my life better?! As far as I'm concerned, it makes everything worse!!

  • Homework Lowers Grades

    Homework is not healthy. You sit in a desk with bad posture all day, stay up till ten that night, and repeat the vicious cycle five more times, getting a brief two day break. After a while, this turns into stress because these children are only doing school related activities,which is very demoralizing and stressful. Some children do not have supportive parents and therefore poorly on their homework. In most schools, homework goes in as a grade. If children are too tired for excessive concentration, this will ultimately cause low homework scores. Especially for high school students, a positive grade in an adolescents record book will result in a higher chance of college acceptance. Homework should be banned.

  • Homework creates stress for the child

    Having more and more homework creates stress for the child and tires them out . Personally my child doesn't have a lot of time for homework so she's under a lot of stress to get it done correctly and on time . So I think children should not have a lot of homework . It's evil.

  • No, because we are too busy being active.

    Kids are too busy doing sports. I think that kids should not have homework. Kids need to be free. They need to not have homework over the summer or over the winter and over spring break they need to be just free. They have no right to make kids have homework!

  • Homework is usless

    I think children should not have homwork because it is usless everytime i get homwork in my class i dont do it becasue it does not help, even without homwork i get awesome grades homwork only helps if you need a lot of help. The only kind of homwork i do is the revision papers we get at the end of the chapters we do because that covers everything we did. A lot of the time you dont like homework because you dont like school so when you go home you are free from school but then you need to do homework... All it does is discourage you for the rest of the school year #NOHOMEWORK

  • It's too stressful!!!!!!!!!

    Homework is completely and utterly stupid and I won't put up with it!!!! I think kids should have more after school time. When they do have the after school time to play with their friends and family, they can relieve themselves the stress of school because from my experience, school can be quite stressful.

  • Children should not get homework

    Children are at school for 6 to 7 hours and as soon as we get home we have to do more it is stupid. I think if teachers want children to have homework well why won't they just keep us in at lunch simple children go to school to learn and when we get home we want to relax and some children have no time for homework as they have chores when they get home

  • Makes kids give up.

    Kids should not get homework because homework makes them not want to go to school and learn, it makes then give up and they don't get help. That's why I agree that kids should not get homework, because they get seven hours of school why get more hours to do homework?

  • Children should not have to do homework

    Children should not have to do homework because it causes stress to students and parents. Kids should be outside playing sport, keeping healthy and having a social life, not staying inside for 1-2 hours doing homework. Homework kills the bond between a kid and his/her parents. It wastes valuable time that youre going to want back when they're older. I believe that homework should be entirely banned or at least optional.

  • Listen

    What has eight letters and strikes fear into the hearts of students around the world? No, it's not broccoli, but that was a good guess! Give up? HOMEWORK!

    Did you just gasp in fear and anguish? We're sorry, but homework is a fact of life and it's time we took a closer look at it. Even though it might get in the way of playing outside or watching your favorite television show, it's necessary and, believe it or not, good for you!

    Homework creates a bridge between school and home. Parents rarely get to spend much time with you while you're at school. Homework allows them to keep up with what you're doing in your classes on a daily basis. But you don't have homework purely for your parents' benefit. It's good for you, too!

    Homework can help you become a better student in several different ways. First of all, homework given in advance of a particular subject can help you make the most of your classroom discussion time. For example, before beginning a discussion of a complex period in history, it can be very helpful to read background information as homework the night before.

    Homework also gives you valuable practice with what you've learned in the classroom. Often, the brief period of time you have during class to learn something new is simply not enough. Repeating classroom concepts at home helps to cement in your mind the things you learned.

    For example, you've probably experienced the value of homework when it comes to mathematics. A new concept explained in class might seem foreign at first. With repetition via homework, however, you reinforce what you learned in class and it sticks with you. Without homework, a lot of classroom time would be wasted with repetition that could more easily be done outside the classroom.

    In these ways, homework expands upon what is done during the day in the classroom. Your overall educational experience is better, because homework helps you to gain and retainmore knowledge than would be possible with only classroom work. As you learn more, you know more and you achieve more…and you have homework to thank!

    Homework teaches lessons beyond just what's taught in the classroom, too. Bringing homework home, completing it correctly, and turning it in promptly teaches a host of other important life skills, from time management and responsibility to organization and prioritization.

    Despite these benefits found by researchers, the topics of who should receive homework and how much homework are hotly debated among educators and researchers. In one study, researchers found that academic gains from homework increased as grade level increased, suggesting homework is more beneficial for older students. Some researchers have found that too much homework can lower or cancel its benefits and become counterproductive, because students become burned out.

    How much is too much? That depends upon many complex factors, including the individual abilities of the child, other demands upon time, such as sports, part-time jobs, family responsibilities, and types of classes. If you feel overburdened by homework, the best thing you can do is to open a dialog with your teacher. Be open and honest about your feelings regarding homework and work with your teacher to strike a reasonable balance that helps you achieve your educational goals.
