New Survey: 43 Percent of Parents Have Done Their Kids’ Homework

In a survey conducted by AskKids and released in late August, 43 percent of parents admitted to having done their kids’ homework. According to the Los Angeles Times, here’s what the survey found:

Forty-three percent of parents queried in a survey this month admit to doing their children’s homework at least once to ease the strain. Almost half the dads, 47%, owned up to doing the homework, while 39% of mothers did so.

Kids who hope to persuade (con?) parents into doing homework have a better shot if mom and dad are older. Of parents 18-24, 33% say they’ve done their children’s homework for them, compared with 45% of 25- to 44-year-old parents.

The survey of 778 parents, conducted for the homework resource website Ask Kids, showed that 84% of parents help with homework — more with math and English than with other subjects.

The survey was conducted by Kelton Research using an e-mail invitation and an online survey. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

If parents stopped helping their kids with homework (or doing it for them), teachers would have to stop giving it, or, at the very least, cut back on the amount. It’s a rare elementary school child who can manage homework without a lot of parental involvement and help. Just imagine what would happen if parents got together and stopped asking their children whether they had homework, stopped helping them do it, and stopped making sure that the homework made its way back to school. A little homework disobedience anyone?

    Eighth grade algebra is sometimes difficult, and it also takes me hours upon hours to complete it. Math is also my favorite subject, but that is the reason I enjoy it.

    I think that kids have way to much homework, especially if they play sports. i’m in high school and i’m up till like midnight doing homework because I cant concentrate or I am asked to do chores when I get home. My teacher has asked me to write an essay about my argument about homework so if possible can someone give me specific facts about the amount of homework kids have. this would be very appreciated :) thanks

    I’m a sophomore and taking hard classes will get you homework, but these teachers expect so much and they will ask you to be at school at 6 in the morning just to work on somthing that you would ushually be up doing until 2
    Last night. I never go to bed before 12 every night, ever. There was a point in the beginning of the school year for about 3 weeks where I couldn’t see straight and I couldn’t think of any thing, I’m beyond that stage now so maybe I’m sleep deprived. I remember when I
    Was in 6th grade and I didn’t finish an essay and it was 10:30 at night and I was freaking out, now I’ll be happy to start an essay at 10:30
    Sleep is very important but then my grades would suffer so bad,I’m short so maybe it’s because my growth was stunted. My advice pick one or 2
    Classes that will challenge you because if u take 4 like me then you will get no sleep and form permanent bags under your eyes

    HI. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Parents doing their children’s homework is DESPICABLE. Especially early on. Hate to break it to you, but homework is not going to go away. A healthy amount is great for the brain ton retain your education. AND NOT DOING YOUR CHILD’S HOMEWORK DOES NOT MEAN THEY WILL BE DEPRESSED. It means THEY WILL DO IT THEMSELVES! Maybe help or explain but are you going to take their tests for them too??? And I’m not some person ranting either because my dad used to help me wayyyyyy too much with my own homework and I’ve seen the consequences. Not only did I fall behind from not understanding the material, but I also developed a feeling of laziness because I thought I could probably get the answers somewhere. But I struggled through it and high school was even difficult because it was weird doing all the work by myself. I’m sure he child is grateful now but they will regret it later. So YEAH LET KIDS DO THEIR OWN HOMEWORK. JUST CHECK IT.

    Why Students Should Not Get Homework

    Many people probably think of homework as one of the many evils of school. Does it really help them though? This leads to the whole topic of not wanting homework. Students should not get homework as it would actually lead to better overall learning in the long run. From this opinion, it is possible to branch off to the life of students, the development of habits, and finally, the need to actually have homework. People have not come to hate homework just because it is there. Dislike or/and hatred is probably directed more towards the effects of homework. This essay might sound like it comes from a typical, whiny student, but if it really is contemplated more deeply, the benefits of homework can become questionable.

    When teachers assign homework, do they really think about the students? As in really think about them? While I did not believe in it, the idea of teachers being robots and turning themselves off after school was certainly amusing. Do teachers think that students are working machines that keep on going even after school? It certainly can not be healthy for both the brain and the body. Life should have a good balance between work and free time. I’m just wondering why doctors haven’t said anything about the effects of homework on health. Students already spend around 7-8 hours in school. They then only have 6-7 hours of alone time before going to bed-not counting dinner, snack time, and daily washroom breaks of course. It must be funny to think, but students are more than just students, they are humans as well. Meaning, they have other things to do after school. Trying to keep parents happy, uphold an image, doing chores, staying friends with people, being healthy, dealing with drama and studying are already a hassle enough without adding in homework. It’s like throwing in piranhas during the sinking of the Titanic. Another thing to consider is the teachers. They don’t exactly go around sharing their schedules with other teachers. This leads to a lot of homework for every single subject. Take Friday as an example. I have a French dialogue to memorize, an English essay to write, an instrument to practice, and a long Socials worksheet to complete. My friends are all in the same boat as well. It is a lot to take in. Imagine the mental strain on the brains of students who just came fresh off from vacation. If homework for each subject is viewed separately it seems okay, but as a whole, the hours really add up. Students can only do so much.

    Giving out homework actually encourages bad habits in students. By assigning school work as homework, we-the simple-minded monkeys that we are-tend to have a certain thought process: ‘Since we’re given the go ahead to do it at home, we’ll just do it at home.’ Thus, this leads to lack of focus during school. The thought process of actually doing the work at home is another story of course. Also, by practically saying “it’s okay to do work at home” people start to not be able to separate work from home, giving birth to a generation of workaholics. Try to think about those poor, future children that can’t play with their parents because they are working from the moment they come home to the time they go to sleep. It is like one of those subliminal messages. Even though it is not said directly, the mind is led to think that way. Making work that would usually be done at school be finished at home also means more time to do them. With less time constraint, students develop laziness and are unable to develop proper time management skills. During last year’s English finals, the project was only to be done at school and we were given a certain amount of time to do them. With such a heavy time limit and pages of writing to do, I did what I had to do: plan out a whole week of English class down to the last detail. There was no room for mistakes, as this would lead to not being able to finish 1 or 2 pages of the final project. While under pressure, people in class actually either finished in time or earlier. Our minds were totally focused on completing the work and there was no homework to distract us from our goal.

    Is there really a need to have homework? One would think that homework is just school work that was not finished at school. Wouldn’t that mean teachers are to blame for homework’s existence? If teachers actually exploit the school time so that work actually gets done at school, then students would not have to go through skipping out on some fun just to get some work done. Parents also seem to think that their children need to have homework. It appears that way since they not only ask, but question as to why we don’t have homework. I know of some parents who would go to teachers asking them to give their kids homework. It must be to get rid of us children so that they can have peace, if only briefly. So basically, its not so that “we can learn some more”. Finally, what does homework accomplish? Learning? Don’t we do that already in school? Homework is just a duplicate of what we learn during class. I think that if the things we need to learn are compressed down to what we actually need for the provincials and for life then all will be happy. Less work, lesser possibility of homework, and more probability of passing provincials since there would be more time to study and less material to actually study.

    After all of this, it’s possible to say that homework can cause a threat to a student’s mental and physical health, promote the development of bad habits, and may not actually contribute to higher learning. So before giving homework, try to think of homework’s side effects. If you really think about it, the harm it does to students outweighs the benefits it gives us-at the end I can only think of one: developing better hand muscles.

    I hope people know this and understand what I’m saying but did you know homework is ruining the lives of kids everywhere! It can mess up a child’s health. If you stay up and do homework, you’re staying up later, which means you’re sleeping less. When anyone below 18 doesn’t sleep the required eight to twelve hours, it can stun your growth. If you have a cold, it will just last longer. Just because you don’t get to sleep. Homework Messes Kids up and it should NOT be tolerated. It also encourages obesity. Notice that America has the most obesity in children. Why do think that is? Fast food? Yes that helps, but if kids had more time to go outside, and more time to exercise, than the obesity rate would drop considerably. Most Kids that are obese are smart and do all there homework, therefore, by the time there done, they wouldn’t be able to go outside or even go on a treadmill, it would be bedtime. By assigning homework, you are supporting obesity in children. Has anyone ever told you? That when you’re a kid, it’s the best 17 years of your life. You should cherish your freedom. What freedom? You say, it is the Freedom to do school work out of school? Yes, children should get good work habits, so instead of written work, maybe tell them to go outside and kick a ball or something and have a parent sign a slip. By having to get something signed, it would enforce commitment, Save the homework for when you’re in college, not kids and teenagers. Let them Cherish there childhood, because that’s something they’ll never get back.

    I agree that plenty of homework can be terribly stressful for both parent and child. My sons are 10 and 11, and last Sunday afternoon spent over 4 hours on homework and still didn’t finish – and not because they didn’t do much during the week before, but because they were already so busy with homework during the week there wasn’t time to start on assignments due the following week.

It wasn’t very pleasant considering my dad was runk at the time and got pissed at all the yelling and eventually beat me, as usual. So i cut myself.
    Obviously homework and school in general has had negative effects on me. My health is in danger, ok scratch that my LIFE is in danger!!!!
    Homework is literally ruining my life, and my teachers probably would care if they knew what happens when they call my house.

    I believe the docus of the article is not on whether or not a student should have homework, or that the volume is unreasonable for students to complete. The article states that 43% of parents simply DO their children’s homework for them. Where’s the learning in that? Is the purpose then, just to get it completed, or to have the child learn? Simply DOING your child’s homework (instead of encouraging a learning process) will not benefit your child in any way.

    Hi there,

    I am a 7th grade student attending a school in CA. Although my parents don’t do my homework, it is true that we teenagers stress on too much homework including take-home-essays. The other day, I had to write a history essay at least 3 pages long, with a bibliography and sources of where I have gotten the information. I had only ONE day to turn in the essay. Due to this, I was under great stress. I got home at 3:16 pm, ate some cooking my mom has made for me, and went into my room. I watched t.v. for a hour, and started on my homework. It was 7:00 pm when I was all done with my homework, except the essay. I got on my computer, and started searching on the web for sources for the history essay. By the time I had all my information and sources, it was about 7:50pm. I started my essay and finished it at 10:21pm. It was a harsh assignment. The night I did the essay, I was under great stress. I kept worrying on how long the essay would take while I was doing it.

    The next day, when I have gone to 4th period to history, I turned my essay in. During the week, I received an “B-“. I am an advanced student in English and Math, so my parents have really high expectations for me to have every grade to be a “B+” or above. I was nearly punished for the harsh grade I have received, but I have told my parents it was due in ONE day. My parents, disappointed, went to have a conference with my history teacher about the essay. My history teacher stated it was due in ONE day because he was going to be busy further down the week. My parents thought his excuse was ridiculous and unacceptable. Despite there is too much homework, why won’t teachers give us more time?

    Too much homework, so little time. Why?

    I appreciate your work and progress on this website.

    Thank you.

    I’m 11 and throughout my school years, my parents have never done any of my homework for me. Because of that, I stay up to about 10:30pm central time trying to complete my homework before my “bedtime” of when I’m too tired to think. I’ve told my teachers this problem and now with my all A s report card, they think I need tutoring. I am trying to get an opt out of homework in my school, but the principal thinks that students should get 2 hours of homework starting in 3rd grade. That is more than the 10 minute rule in which I strongly belive in. My classmates and I are now going to protest the 20 page science packet so we can get more sleep this weekend. Good luck to all, but it’s sleep or homework.

    This is hard for me to believe. I am in my teens and my parents have never DONE my homework FOR me. They’ve done it WITH me, and they have helped me with it many a time. For that I am grateful. But I know that if I were to try and “con” my parents into doing it, they would probably ground me! I love my parents for helping me and making me do it, instead of doing it for me so that I wouldn’t know how to do the assignment. I love you Mommy and Daddy!

    Kaitlynn, I’m not sure which of us you are addressing. I have never done my daughter’s homework, ever. I don’t play those games.

    Yet I will tell you that some of the most hyper-competitive parents in my daughter’s private school and to a lesser degree her Gifted Talented Center, for all their undying support of the teachers and school, were secretly doing their children’s homework. Anything for that A. I didn’t do that because I don’t care about the A, I care about learning and not promoting learned helplessness.

    Maybe it’s time for the teachers to root this out and stop rewarding and lauding the “perfect” children. Because some of those perfect little gems were bullyers and cheaters, behind the teacher’s back.

    I have done my daughter’s homework for her, in my own handwriting, in pen…to make the point to the teacher. If it comes home and I find out about it (I don’t find out about it unless my daughter says she can’t do it….mostly she works independently and DOES NOT want my help with anything) …it’s usually because it’s not age appropriate or is one of those “fun, family activities”. I don’t take this stuff seriously, or as a learning (teaching)opportunity for anyone. So to calm my child down and spend the least amount of time on it possible, I do it.
    And I’ll do it again.

    PsychMom, I’m with you. I’ve done my kid’s homework, and I’ve done a lot of “expediting” — finding the quickest, most painless way through. I guess that’s a useful skill for the dc.

    Part of the problem for my dd is that she’s a very serious type of kid (hence the anxiety and depression back at public school.) She wants to do well at school, and she knows everyone expects her to. She’s frustrated by assignments where she’s not sure what the teacher is looking for, but she fears she might be scolded if she didn’t guess the teacher’s intentions correctly. She’ll freeze over some issue like “should I list the room’s dimensions in one column or several columns?” and we have to bail her out so she won’t spend all evening on it. (“Just choose one approach, crank it through, be done!”)

    PsychMom says:
    Yeah, and that’s what I’m getting at with my point about age-appropriateness too. If they were old enough and experienced enough, the kid would know what to do. Anytime there’s guesswork involved it means something is missing and there’s a potential for making a mistake. At the adult level, or maybe in the later high school level, I can see a teacher wanting to leave things a bit more open-ended to see what the learner can extrapolate.

    But in Grade 3, it’s learning a skill…basic basic basic. There’s no value in floundering because young kids live in Black and White world, it’s either right or wrong. At that age, being wrong about factual information doesn’t really help you learn anything. 2+2=4, it’s not 4…ish. The teacher is not looking for a creative proof of how it’s actually 5 or 22. The teacher wants to see the 4…so if the child can’t sort out what the equation 2+2 means, the teacher didn’t reach that child on that day. The child either needs to go back to school the next day and get some help from the teacher, or if it’s meant to be a fun family activity, then, in my house, Mom fills them in.

    It took my kid a bit of time to figure out the signs + – X and division…she’s still working on it..she should be. She’s in Grade 3. They have a particular way of teaching arithmetic at her school. I don’t get it. They want me to get it so I can help her at home, but I refuse. If she comes home and tells me I HAVE to help her and it has to be done tomorrow…then I do it. So far I’ve not gotten any messages back.

    I agree, homework is quite beneficial for the students later on. Although, large quantities of homeworks eprive students, such as I, from sleep. Even though a bunch of rules are made by the school board about the maximum amount of homework a student can have, they are not reinforced very much.

    In regards to the parents doing childrens homework, in my community, that is unheard of. I’m rather appalled by theese statistics. Personally, my parents would aid me if I had difficulty but, actually doing my homework is rather ridiculous.

    You moms and people are crazy about just a bit of homework, jeeez. I’m a freshman in high school now and have been doing all my homework, my parents in fact give me about and average of 30 extra math problems everyday during the week day and about 50-70 math problems during the weekend, as well as numerous reading, writing and biology promblems. I’ve been doing this since 2nd grade, and I don’t have any problems with it. So please don’t think that your kids not doing school given homework is no big deal, it IS a big deal, I finish my school homework as well as my given homework everyday. Plus I don’t get TV from Monday to Thursday as well as video games. On Fridays I’m free to do anything. On Saturdays and Sundays I have to finish my homework first to watch TV, and only about 2 hours each day. I get about 1 hour of video games only, So you moms and dads and whoevers out there complaining, Think again. Everyone needs to be like me if you even plan to complain, even though I don’t have any problem with where I at.

    Hi, i am an international baccalaureate freshman at Wooster high in Nevada. i applied for the program because i really do care about my education. today i stayed home from school because last night i had a mental breakdown and started to hyperventilate because of my loads of homework. i have 4-6 hours of homework a night. why is getting a diploma so hard?? the reason i found this article is because i have to write an essay about educational debates for English class, and mine is the homework debate. my life revolves around homework. i feel as if i’m in a totally different world, a totally different person. i rarely am happy unless my homework is finished and i’m stress-free. at one point, in 8th grade, my mom suggested a counselor or cycologist because i was mentally sick and damaged because of stress. none of that stress would have happened if i had less homework. i plead for help, and even though in k-6th I’ve had straight a’s, i wonder if i’m a baccalaureate dropout, or a high-school dropout for that matter. please fix this craziness with homework. Ive missed so much. my days, even weekends, involve school, homework, sleep. i cant sleep at night anymore. i haven’t gotten sleep in so long. Ive missed family time, i haven’t seen my grandma in so long, and she came to visit. i wasn’t able to spend any time with her. weeks later she died. i couldn’t go to the funeral because i knew i would be too stacked up on homework if a missed even a day of school. i want a family again.help. please.

    I am a College Student, still living at home, and I get yelled at my parents for not being able to go to sleep at 9 or 10 pm. Parents can be really ignorant sometimes because since I am taking 4 classes this semester and sometimes it takes me so long to complete assignments, I can only get a few hours of sleep each night. Plus I am trying to manage my time at the best of my ability. Sometimes school can be hard and in order to put effort, sometimes you may have to take risks like missing recess, not being able to go to the beach with your friends on Saturday afternoon, missing the trip to the Gym, etc. etc. Things won’t be perfect. Same when you hold a career when you are older. You might have to work 14-15 hour shifts depending on how high paying your career is (that is if you are a Neurosurgeon in an ER or a Corporate Attorney at an LA or New York Law Firm). Hard work pays off and has it’s rewards, what can I say.

    I’m a junior in high school and I can’t count the times I’ve had to stay up all night doing homework, then it being bad quality because I was over-tired. My teachers constantly give the class large assignments daily with two days to do them sometimes even right before report cards.Teachers don’t understand the stress that students get from the constant work load. One time I even had to go to my dance class all day after school so I stayed up all night doing as much home work as I could, alas I didn’t finish. When I went to my teacher at the begging of class to apologize i got a 0 on that project ,later in the class the TEACHER announced that they had felt a little sick so they couldn’t mark our tests. But what happend to them, NOTHING. it’s really become such a problem because I can barely fit in my family and sports along with all the homework I get. When I do manage to, all my work and relationships are affected by the constant strain and I’m always tired because either I’m up late trying to do homework or I’m so stressed about school I can’t sleep.
    I’d love to keep talking but I’ve got alot of homework to do and two test to study for.

    After hard work day parents spend hours a night helping children to do all or part of their homework. It is not an easy task to solve the daily problems and after that look up answers to homework problems. Sometimes homework frustrates not only children but their parents, too! Especially when teacher says that your mother’s answers are wrong. Mums really have a lot of their home chores and sometimes to do their children home works is really too much!

    Until there is a complete overhaul of the education system, I think homework is necessary although it may be a pain in the butt for kids and parents including myself. Where my daughter goes to school, the student to teacher ratio is high and not many teachers have the time to teach a class of 24 students and spend quality time helping those in need of help. This is why homework is important. Homework has helped my daughter who is in the 7th grade. At one point she was coming to me every night asking for help with her math homework. I would cringe every time I saw her coming to me with her math book in hand looking frustrated. Because I had forgotten some of the Algebra from 30 years ago, I had to relearn it in like 10 minutes then explained it to her—sometimes several times in different ways—so that she could understand. Anyway, she ended up making an A in math. Without the homework, I honestly think she would have made a C or D. Her struggles with homework alerted me that she needed further help that she obviously wasn’t receiving in the classroom, and I gave that to her the best way I could. Homework may not be the perfect solution but until they find something better then I think homework should stay. So, yes I am a homework advocate until classroom sizes are reduced, students get better teachers and instructions, and better teaching method are put into place which I cannot see happening in the near future being that many schools are being hit with budget cuts in most states. And by the way, parents doing kids homework is counter-productive.

    School should be about learning, not about grades. It would be nice if the learning part about homework was more greatly emphasised. Besides, there are other ways to learn other than filling out worksheets or doing whatever projects you are assigned by your teachers. Not everyone learns in the same way :)

    I am a year 11 student (2010) and I do agree that the amount of homework should be lowered. It is affecting my sleep, thinking ability and hygiene. I don’t waste time showering because I have to do homework straight as I get home or otherwise it’d mean no sleep for the night. I have turned into that much of a workaholic that when dinner is served I let it lie there until I’ve finished reading a chapter, or have finished answering the questions on a page. I try to stop myself but I can’t.

    I have lost every single one of my friends and I hate my life because the only thing I have left is my education.

    I want to go onto university. I hate my parents because they said they won’t pay for my university books, which will force me to get a part time job. I’m frightened because I already stay up until 12 to 2 AM finishing homework. With university I’ll probably get more work that is even harder. With a part time job I won’t be able to sleep at all in my life. That means no sleeping for 5 years. I don’t think people can last that long! All I have is my education and it’s being ripped from me.

    I know lack of sleep is affecting my education because I never use to slur my words or feel it was a major task to be able to talk. My teachers are asking if I’m alright because my ability to pay attention is decreasing. I get ‘really cold’ during the day. Even on a hot day. I am unable to take in what the teacher is saying and remember it for at least 20 seconds. I use to be able to remember everything. I use to be quick in tests and assignments back in the day where I had lots of sleep. Everything I do, even simple things seem like such a big task because I’m that tired.

    When I go to university in 2012 I feel like doing my full time course (B.Dental.Surgery 9am – 5pm) then doing a part time job just to show my parents that it’s not possible. I’m staying up until 2am in year 11. So in university that’d mean having no sleep at all? Oh god!

    Well my parents will learn the hard way that they should have payed for my university books, when their son dies due to sleep deprivation. Those last few days staying awake will be so hard. My skin will be pale, I’ll be shivering and weak in the knees. So they definitely know the cause of my death, I’ll write on my stick it’s and stick them on my wall. Saying, “Need sleep!” and “Wish parents payed for university books, so I’d have time to sleep.”

    My parents said this to me when I said that getting a part time job to pay for my education is a bad idea: “Well life is like that, you have to do a million things at once. You should be independent now since you’re 17. You don’t get payed for sitting on your arse you know.” I think they either, don’t realise how late I stay up doing homework or simply don’t care. I do believe I should get a job to support myself, but only when it’s ‘feasible’ to do so. Especially when I have trouble communicating now because of my sleep deprivation. I told them it wasn’t possible, but they said that “anything is possible if you want it hard enough.” So, looks like I’m only left with one option. Uni + Prt-Time Wrk. Thus, = no sleep, but let’s pretend Homo Sapiens (humans) can survive without sleep (rolls eyes). -__-

    A lot of the homework isn’t even remembered by students because they are in such a rush to get it complete and out of the way, especially those that receive heaps.

    I really hope I attain a scholarship that can pay of my books or university and part time work will kill me. I’m not fabricating this. Having insanely high homework loads is what’s destroying me. :(

    There is way too much homework. Technically it’s supposed to help, but most of the time all it gives me is a headache and less sleep. I am so much better when I have slept at least 6 hours!!! On top of that, my classes start at 6:30, so I have to get up at 5 to get ready. Most of the time I am up until 12 studying. My social life has significantly decreased and the things I like to do are slowly getting squeezed out. My weekends are plagued with homework, I still have homework on holidays, and sometimes even “breaks”. If it gets any worse I just don’t know what I’m going to do.

They don’t do anything after school or weekends because we simply haven’t time. I work from home and Dad is in Iraq. The 13 yr old usually get about 2-5 hrs homework each night and 4-8 at weekends! And the 17 year old who is getting 4-8 hours and upto 12 at weekends! Not including study. I find this ridiculous! Last time dad came home we left school 30 mins early to collect him and told the kids spending time with dad was more important than homework but they got 2 weeks detention even though i gave a note! I changed their schools 2 years ago due to the amount of homework but its worse! Its tearing our family apart. When their dad comes home they should be able to spend time with hime because we must cherish every moment with him because its very dangerous out there and you never know that he could be the next man lowered into the ground just like many people he knew…….

    Homework is a big trouble for me. It really catches me in a bad, vicious cycle. i always end up w/ my mom yelling at me after having a bad, stessful day of one or two missed assignments, and the day @ school was already stessful alone. Then my mom gets to stalk my every assignment on infinitecampus. After a bad day i get to come home to her. She procedes to infinitecampus to look at every last class. It’s insanely stessing, and when it builds up, bam vicious cycle.
    Another problem is that she’s one of those parents who acts like thier time with school was almost or absolutely perfect. so i get to listen to her yelling and swearing at me because “this is what i did, it’s so @#$! simple, why won’t YOU do it?!” Worse, half her little tips are invalid, but she still has to expect me to use them or she gets more pissed if i tell her when she’s lecturing me. All about the homework.

    and still, more problems. Now here’s the classic deal i get that’s so overused and inefficient: Do you homework when you get home, and before i do, and you won’t be punished. Of course when something bad happens, punishment. however when something good happens.

    “Okay, a bunch of 100s here. Good. Some 100s here, nice-
    What the @$%! is this?! Another 50?! Why’d you get this?! And on and on. Why does every parent think that the only motivation is punishment and yelling, especially with school?

    I hate my life, who’s to blame? Hmm, i wonder HOMEWORK.

    …I swear after i’m done with MS and enter HS i’ll end up contemplating suicide. Sad.

    You guys are Dumb says:
    You people are so stupid your just to lazy to sit down with your child and help them do their homework its not that difficult my mom sat down with me every single night and she would watch me do my homework and now I do my Homework all by myself without her telling me too. Kids need homework because it helps the teacher understand who’s understanding the lesson and who isn’t and if you don’t appreciate the teacher taking the time out to go find a homework sheet to see if your child understands it then you are pathetic. Also if you are in High School like me homework helps bring up your grade, but its up to the student to take the time out and do it. I go to a private High School where I get probably five hours of homework every night I’ve stayed up until 2 in the morning studying for finals. It only gets worse as your kids get older you should be thankful for the easy math or vocab sheets that only take an hour all together. And don’t try and say oh my child doesn’t have the patients to sit down for an hour and do homework well then he could do one sheet and take a break and then do another sheet. So to all you people on this site that think homework needs to be abolished I hope you understand that that will never happen so suck it up because it only gets harder!!!!!

    Wow…the next generation of dependent adults being created by whiny dependent parents…when and how do you think your little dependents will become successful adults who actually learn to manage assigned tasks in a timely manner. Stay healthy co-dependent moms because your kids will be living in the basement and need your “interventions” for a long time. No wonder other societies are passing us up! Those parents actually have expectations for children.

    I think school should be optional.Yes it is in our best interest yada yada yada, but if we don’t want to be educated we shouldn’t have to be.Most kids would probably still go to school, but not as much. I’m in 6th grade, and I’d probably go to school 4 days a week from 11 to 4 that is still 5 hours of school and 20 hours a week. Homework on the other hand is just plain cruel.Studies show that until up to 9th grade homework doesn’t help. Actually in some cases homework can be worse. Schools say get active an hour a day, and do your home work and read 30 minutes every night, and then they say go have fun. Thats about 5 hours of school based stuff (kinda) and then its time to eat dinner, then you have about 30 minutes to go play if you did all that stuff.

    Don’t you think this is a little unfair on the children who actually try to achieve something. Rather than sitting around playing on a games console, children should value an education and not have their parents do their work for them. I have always done all my own work and had minimal help from my parents. I have a friend who’s mother does all his own homework whilst he plays on the xbox. If this attitude spreads the technocentric era will have achieved nothing compared to what our mothers and fathers time had. If you persist to help your child, what will they do when it comes to a time to write exam in HS? Or produce an essay when the standard of work can be differentiated between student and parent. The future I see for my friend is a very bad one, his mother can’t help him when he, if he does, have a career. In the modern world.

    Hi I’m a 6th grade student at buena vista middle school and this article is about home work. I hate home work because it is taking up my sleep and other things. And for all of you home work haters like me we all say lunatics unite!. Some day we all will renegade, and rebel against all of the education system of the united states of amarica and make sure that all home work is banned forever. Home work does not benefit any thing it limits freedom of our 17 years of childhood, It makes kids more obese, it cuts in to all our sleep schedule, and like I said about rebellion we all will fight back against teachers and the education system and we will fight to the death until there is no more homework because we need time to play our video games, watch tv, ETC. And anyone who likes homework what is your problem. All kids hate home work. Because we stay trapped in a building for 6 hrs listening to the teachers blabbing away about something boring and then we are let free though we are given HOMEWORK the worst possible thing on the planet we want freedom and when do we want it NOW so let’s fight back against the horrible piece of paper we all hate LUNATICS UNITE!!!!!!! back to the horrors of homework those teachers think we are dumb when we get our A+s and recommend tutoring when we don’t need it

    Matthew your right about the home work because nowadays teachers just want to give you mining truck loads of home work, detentions,F-‘s,in school suspensions, And demerits all the time like when I was in high school I just could not stand the pressure,the tension, and the stress I just dropped out and ran away. And now as a veteran motor stormer I just think of it as ancient history for me because all I ever do is ride my chopper and live free and I support all of you kids who hate all that stuff and a message for all you home work lovers and teachers You’re greased. So leave those kids alone because I’m the leader of the MVMC ( monument valley motorcycle club) and a veteran of operation desert storm And I encourage that you rebel and renegade against the Ed system and I will help fight back against the Ed system

    Gina, a lot of students in my daughter’s pressure cooker high school had your sleeping pattern. My daughter is not a napper. When she stayed up very late to finish homework, which was frequent and against my rules, she’d go into school very tired the next day. Then she’d come and have to rinse and repeat. All on an extremely worn out body and mind. She’s not a napper. Which meant she was always doing her homework severely tired, which of course was a constant concern. If she did nap, which was almost never, she would not be able to fall back asleep.

    Yes, Gina, it’s a very unhealthy lifestyle. Which is why we here have worked so hard to try and change that. Better to get reasonable homework, be done before dinner, have a chance at just being a kid, and getting to bed at a decent hour. I am so sorry for you. It is not fair and it’s harmful.

    I don’t think schools would stop giving homework to you just because parents stop helping kids. They will just keep piling it on and then tell parents at teacher parent interviews how rotten the child had been with getting their homework in. Maybe the teacher should try doing all the homework, too. That would put an end to all our problems!!!

  23. An Annoyed High Schooler says:

    I despise homework from the bottom of my heart. I always try my best, but there are so many distractions at home that every once and awhile I don’t start my homework until 11 or 12, and the amount of homework keeps me from going to bed until 5:30 am some nights. You may say, “Just close yourself into your room, move away any distractions, and just focus.” I have obviously tried that, and yet in various instances, it does not work. If you calculate the number of siblings you have at your home, that adds to your distraction factor by a huge percentage as well as any various normal distractions such as books, snacks, games, daydreams, meals, music, and phones (it doesn’t have to be a smart phone, since you can still get into conversations with friends). Homework has destroyed my sleep cycle. Now I could do what most high schoolers do and just skip the homework and get a late grade or a 0, but I care about my grades. So when I stay up doing homework, and get an hour of sleep, I am then sleep deprived for my next day of learning, which I always can only remember as a blur, since my brain is half dead from staying up all night. Now I can understand the values of some homework, but the fact that I have to lug all the contents of my locker home EVERY night may be seen as a slight hint that there is too much homework. So I guess I am not against eradicating homework, although I admit, it would be nice, but I am more in favor of limiting the amount of homework given per day/week.

    Ok, my point is that students should have homework , but sometimes the teachers should not give there students that much homework. Due that some students would stay up late doing it and let them have time to sleep. And my thesis here is that, parents should not do the homework of the kids because the kids need to learn it, or them there sons/daughters wouldn’t know how to explain how they did there homework.
