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?

    What would happen if we stopped helping our kids with homework? The kids would get punished at school for their incomplete homework. Then they would become anxious and depressed. (Ask me how I know!) I’m all for homework disobedience, but let’s find a way of going about it that doesn’t hurt our kids.

    I think a homework strike would be a great idea, but it has to be well-organized and the parents’ support has to be very clear. It’s not news that kids don’t want to do homework; even people who support homework assume the kids will hate it.

    To my dismay, we’re already having problems with homework at the super-expensive Quaker school our daughter is now attending. I’m trying to get an appointment to talk to the teacher and in the meantime I’m trying to calm down and figure out what I need to say. Calm … calm …

    You are right. And my daughter WAS punished. She was shy and introverted and was having trouble making friends. So the teacher put all the names of the children who hadn’t done their homework in large letters on the blackboard. This was done to shame them so they wouldn’t dare come to school with homework undone again. Because we know that belittling and humiliating children, the most vulnerable in our society is a powerful motivator. Yea, right… Reminds me of that quip – the beatings will continue until morale improves.

    I hear you, FedUpMom. And enough with this punishment. What is this, prison?

    So she didn’t do her homework, oh, fair teacher. Get over it!

    I’m with Sarah. It’s time for a homework strike.

    A few years ago, I did stop helping my children with homework. It was hard and I know it frustrated them. Prior to this, I would spend hours a night “helping them” look up answers to problems. We would get into heated debates, finally I would say just write this and give them word for word what I believed was a good answer (a lot of times, the teacher would grade “my” answers wrong). It finally hit me. My kids are very shy and they were not asking their teachers for help during class time. It was easier to ask mom for help at night. If they were un-sure of an answer, they could just ask mom (and then argue with mom if her opinion disagreed with theirs). I told my kids that I had faith in their abilities and that if they had questions, they would have to ask their teacher. I found that once I stopped helping, they didn’t bring home quite so much homework! Still WAY TOO MUCH, but not as much as before.

    My child is in second grade and is a turtle at understanding and doing homework. The average 30 minutes takes my child with help 1 hour or more. Studying for her spelling test, reading, math and extra homework stuff. I was so overwhelmed with keeping her organized, I forgot to make sure she did her math homework. It’s becoming to much.

    As a local board of education member, I initiated a revision of our homework policy after reviewing a large body of research which clearly indicates that homework is NOT an important factor in student achievement. Neither does it stimulate independence, responsibility or build character. These supposed effects are virtually zero for elementary and middle school students and minimal for high schoolers. In addition it places a hugh burden on children with limited ability and/or homes with limited resources. Read the research! Ignore the myth!

    hi I am a kid to I know how it feels to be working on homework all night i’ve did it and I get lack of sleep because of it. I think there should be a no school policy rule because kids do worse in school because they didn’t get enough rest at home and did not get enough time to sleep. If you guys really feel that why don’t you guy just write a strng letter to the district your child goes to exposing the outrage of homework.

    I am a grade ten high school student and I usually make sure to try my best to do my homework and give it a good effort. I still have to say, the amount is RIDICULOUS! I wish my parents were just as supportive as many of you.

    Research has proved that repetitive questions, ones that make up quite a large percentage of our daily homework, only make children forget the formula/method etc. they are supposed to be learning.

    And wasn’t the ORIGINAL meaning of homework supposed to be “Work assigned in class that the student did not complete”, not “Work assigned purposely just to go home and waste all our free time”?

    The school boards keep telling us that gym class is very important, but we still need to get physical activity after school. Then they tell us that we need to spend time with family. THEN they say that we need to care about our hygiene and shower/bathe/get washed daily. How do they expect us to do all that AND still get free time?
    It’s just not fair.

    Hi. I’m a sophomore and I actually get less homework now than I did in the sixth grade. I really have no clue why i got so much as an elementary student, but in high school I get math and occasionally science or english homework. They also give me time to work on homework most of the time in class. How is it I get less homework than elementary school?

    Dear Elementary School:

    Who says the system has to make sense? :) We transferred my daughter to another pyramid for middle school (we had to move to do so) and she got a little less homework in 7th than 6th. One 6th grade teacher was hell bent on “preparing” the kids so she worked them to death, it was a killer year.

    Why do you get less in high school? You are probably not in one of those ‘elite pressure cookers” and aren’t taking an unreasonable load of APs. Your teachers just don’t assign much homework. I guess elementary school was supposed to prepare you for less? Count your blessings.

    I do hope, though, that time is being used well in your classes. I am not advocating we slide into mediocrity. Just that schools offer our children a quality education with homework policies based on sound research and not on ideology. And I cannot say this enough. Eliminate the fluff and time wasters and you’d be surprised what seven and a half hours of school buys you.

    I don’t think homework is the noble exercise designed to make our children better, more responsible people. They just say that to scare us. It’s a dumping ground for all the stuff that needs to get done but didn’t during the school day. And I do cede that teachers are overworked and there isn’t enough time during the day. That is why I am suggesting teachers and parents be allowed to work together and brainstorm better solutions.

    Because sleep deprivation does no one any good. Least of all the stern teachers who equate undone homework with a crime. What is the point of preparing a vibrant lesson when your students are not awake enough to enjoy 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.

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.

    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.

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.

    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!”)

  55. 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.

    >> It helps our grades.

    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. :(

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 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!!!!!

    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.

    If teachers fail to keep us in line with school work, meaning that all our lessons work isn’t completed within that lesson, then shame on them. If they give us piles of homework, then they arent teaching us that work, its up to us to research and learn it. And teachers are getting paid for that????

    As a librarian, I see parents doing their kids homework for them every day. Once I had a woman call me up, ask a question, then another and then another. When I asked what she was reading from, she told me she was working on her daughter’s take home exam. She told me her daughter was at cheerleading practice and didn’t have time to take the test herself.

    I just hope all these parents are willing to take care of their children into their adult years. McDonalds only has so many jobs to go around.

    please to anyone reading this. please.
    I am a 13 year old english human being. I am a slightly slower worker and my teachers give us too much homework. I’ve been searching google for a while trying to find some sort of english site where good people can stop homework. My school is gumley house in isleworth, middlesex but I live in kingston, surrey. My school day begins at 840 and ends at 240 on mondays and wednesdays and 310 on tues, thurs & friday. By the time I have gotten home it is 430. I eat then do homework from 530 to 1000 usually. And I still don’t get it done. Then at 10 i go upstairs and have a shower and wash then go to bed at about 11. i wake up at 6. I don’t get to sleep until midnight. at least 2 thirds of my homework is posters and drawing. not much of my homework actually consists of me learning. Please, im begging anyone who is reading this, to help english kids. there are so many reasons. just look at all the comments. I also have depression and my hair falls out a lot because of stress. i also do my homework all day sunday. like i said most of this work in year 8 this year has been posters. my school has a strange learning concept and thinks that drawing will help us. we also had something called integrated learning in y7 which was horrible as well. ever since i started secondary school i have gained bags under my eyes, my hair falling out and depression. right now its my easter holidays and ive been given a science poster(ive lost count of how many science posters i have had to do this year) and R.E project, geography homework, mymaths homework(which has 4 sheets and 2 of them have 5 sheets inside them. i want my holidays to be free and to have fun. oh yeah something i forgot to add before, since starting secondary school i have gained a lot of weight on my legs because i dont move around and do exercise because i dont have time. my ribs stick out because i cant eat because of stress. please help me.

  120. what parents should do says:

    If the teachers would do the job that they are being paid for and stop lacking the responsibility of teaching our children would learn in school. But NO the teachers’ want to get paid more for what they DON’T teach… And as for homework GOD forbid if the child has homework, the parent can help the child and NOT do it for them. This is why the children go to school to learn the responsibility of doing their own work.
    Now on the other note the teachers don’t teach responsibility to the students of any type of moral. Yes the parents have responsibility of teaching the child respect, responsibility, courage, honor at home and if they leave it up to the school to do boy they have a rude of wakening, they will be in trouble not only in school, but with the law… Oh wait most of the kids are already in some kind of trouble by the time they are 17.. if not in juvenile hall, they are in prison…

    I believe in homework to a certain degree. I am currently a high school junior, so I understand the frustrations and stress homework brings. A small amount of homework, meaning 30 minutes to an hour a night is a reasonable amount. It’s important to have what we learn in class reinforced just so its engraved in our brain. The amount of homework assigned these days is simply TOO MUCH. Most of my life I’ve hated school. I hate school for various reasons, but one of the more primary reasons is homework. “Hate” is a strong word, and it’s not a word I use lightly. In this particular case I find it to be the most appropriate word to describe my feelings, so I assure you “I HATE school”. It’s unfortunate that I hate school because it doesn’t have to be that way. My mother once told me of a time when students LOOKED FORWARD to going to school each morning! I was dumbfounded. What happened? One major factor is homework. I have to do a lot of work each night, sometimes I don’t do it because I’m exhausted. Some teachers understand my exhaustion, others do not. I find it difficult to sleep. I’ve pulled several all-nighters, even in middle school. I know it seems as if I’m complaining, and I might just be, but I find that saying nothing isn’t going to help. And don’t get me wrong, I understand my privilege of education, I try to milk it for all its worth, but I feel as if I have reached the breaking point. I know there are those who have no education, but I believe that it is also true that there are those who have too much. My father once told me about about a college student who commited suicide because he was too overwhelmed with school work…a student TOOK his LIFE because of SCHOOL WORK! Something must be changed. I’ve had two phsycologists due my stress and anxiety regarding school, and I also believed I’m depressed. Please someone help us students.

    I have never completed a child’s homework for them but have “helped” to the point of the ridiculous because they were too young to read the instructions or the homework involved subject matter that they had not yet mastered in class. It seems to me that the school system is introducing new material to students during class and then expecting parents to teach the material to their children at home via their homework assignments. I am not referring to 7th to 12th grade students. I am referring to K through 6th grade students. I would expect 7th to 12th graders to have up to 30 min. of homework per night (that’s PER NIGHT not PER CLASS). Many studies by very qualified educators have proven that homework in the lower grades is ENTIRELY counter productive. Extensive testing or assessment is also totally counter productive. It’s time for schools/teachers to QUIT TESTING AND ASSIGNING HOMEWORK and start teaching in school during class – NOT AT HOME. If the subject can’t be taught thoroughly in the classroom then it is time to seriously look at the quality of the teachers we are hiring to teach our children. Children in the lower grades need to come home and play and unwind after 6 or 7 hours in school.

    Homework is meant to help reinforce skills needed to take tests, parent’s shouldn’t worry about them getting bad grades on it because if the parent does the work and the kid is always happy they will learn nothing and fail the tests, which will be even worse. Even if tests are done right they will still eventually fail in life from not being able to do anything on their own.

    Source: Person at my High School got a 4.0 GPA and was Valedictorian because his mom did all his homework for him and she worked at the school and he would get special permission to take the tests in her office because of a learning problem. He is currently about to fail out in college because he was not prepared for anything.

    OMG – Carol I totally agree! Case in point, my 2nd grade daughter brought home pages of Multiplication problems out of nowhere just the other day, expecting her to be able to multiply 12 and 12.. which I had to teach her because she had no clue and had never done before!? It’s not the only time this happened, this went on in 1st grade too, where she was bringing home practically algebra problems and stressing out over because she didn’t understand it. I spent hours upon hours every night teaching and tutoring her. I got so stressed out because I didn’t have a life and was already tired after working all day and then spending all night teaching my kid that I ended up in the pscych ward because my nerves were so shot, I was threatening to shoot myself :/ We and our kids should not be put through this type of emotional trauma! (see also sooty’s comment above too) They don’t need it, especially in Elementary school. The only time I see it being benificial is a night or two before a test to study, not everyday. And my daughter loves math, loves it, but she is failing it because the way I learned it and the way they are teaching her is not the same as what the school is doing and it’s confusing her.

    I agree that homework does suck…especially being a grad student at a college university but I disagree that homework should be taken out completely. Homework is made in order for teachers and professors alike to make sure the students are learning the material they are teaching. I’m not saying that all homework is fair and balanced however my thought process is that all kids have to worry about is going to school, getting their homework done, and enjoying the rest of their day. Adults have to worry about job security, mortgages, bills, etc. so I don’t believe it is asking to much of a child or teen to do some homework.

    I know there are some schools/teachers that give copious amount of work but I am in a current situation where a 13 year old cousin of mine has had a WEEK to do 20 notecards and cite the sources (just by writing http://www.yahoo.com, no MLA or APA formatting). I help him find 11 sources the other night and it was due today. He then called me about an hour ago saying he only did one notecard. This is an ongoing process! He seems to not care about homework and has the belief that the teachers are disrespecting him by giving him homework, when the reality is he is just too lazy/not motivated to do his work.

    Sorry I don’t mean to rant on a personal situation on this chat but I just believe homework helps to reinforce the material that the children are (hopefully) taught at school before they come home with homework.

    I’m a sophomore in high school and I never need the assistance from my parents. My parents never did my homework for me when I was younger (2nd grade-ish), they helped me with it if I was stuck. They then got fed up with me asking for help every night and thus told me to go figure it out myself. To this day I thank them because I’m in the Pre-Diploma Program for IB, taking Precalculus along with AP Human Geography and AP Literature (2 college credit classes and pre-calc is counted as a college class to most people even though there is no credit given) and French 3 with a 3.8 GPA. I now get about four to five hours of homework a night and I surprisingly don’t see a problem with it. It’s all about time management and whether you (the parent) brought up your kid well or not.

    I’m also playing varsity baseball for my school…

    P.S. The gifted program doesn’t mean anything. I mean it. I wasn’t accepted into the gifted program in elementary school and I’m thankful for that because now the kids who were in gifted are all taking drugs, failing out of school, and fail the FCAT (Florida’s standardized test). I passed the writing with a 6, math with a 5, reading with a 5, and science with a 5 without trying at all and with 40 minutes left for the test (besides writing). So don’t brag about your kid being in the gifted program because I hear my moms friends talk about it all the time and we think the same exact thing, STFU.

    homework is the worst idea ever invented. All the pressure of extra work that really isn’t nessessary, it’s ridiculous. And they wonder why so many high school students are struggling and withdrawing themselves from their family, they are feeling the pressure. Homework causes lack of sleep, depression, unhealthy eating habits. Homework builds up so much that trying to stay on top of it all is extremely stressful, what with the assessment tasks they give us too. It’s extremely unfair to kids and teens who just want to enjoy being young, just want to have fun. It makes them wish their schooling years away, make them wish their life away, and before they know it it will be over, so these years should be enjoyable and not stressful. Homework should be unfinished work in class, and nothing but that, not stupid extra work the teachers purposly tell you to do in your free time.

  143. Alex says:

    I do agree that there is a lot of homework, but it is manageable. I’m in grade 12, and in our agenda it lists how much homework should be assigned per class. Currently my Toronto District School Board agenda states that I should be getting 1 hour and 15 minutes worth of homework per class. I don’t mind doing 5 hours of homework, get home at 4:00pm, do work ’til 9:00pm, then 3 hours of time for myself before I go to bed at 12:00am, but I am 17 and have dropped my weekday badminton, violin, and soccer activities. Being Chinese, my family, and country of origin believes in repetition until perfected. From my experience as a child juggling all the extra curricular activities and going to bed my 9:00pm I don’t see how many kids could do it all.

    As you may also know, homework checks are common in elementary school while high school teachers rarely check for homework as they believe it to be the students’ responsibility. I completely agree with this. Homework should be given out as a supplementary source of learning. Students who need the practice should do it voluntarily while those that don’t shouldn’t be penalized. Teachers always make a big fuss because students aren’t listening, or that students haven’t devoted 100% of their attention to the teacher, why don’t teachers just teach the class as best they can regardless if anyone listens?

    Just assign the homework, teach the classes, and if students fail then it’s on them. If students fail because they don’t do the homework then it’s the students’ fault. If students or parents come to the teacher for help then it’s the teacher’s responsibility to act.

    Thanks for the “just suck it up” argument. You may as well have told us, I hated learning too but I did it anyway. If it was good enough for me, it was good enough for you.

    We actually live in a very anti-intellectual time. The pro-homework argument, when you scratch deep enough, isn’t about learning, growing, reaching, expanding one’s mind. So much of it, I found, was about putting creative children in their place. I hated it, so you should too.

    I often wonder if the most vehement defenders of reading logs actually didn’t like reading when they were children. Only a person with an aversion to reading could have dreamed up that dreaded twenty minute rule. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when at a local CHADD event, the leader chirped that we should take out timers. She showed a grinning boy who had just gotten through his required twenty minute obligation.

    I really hope some of you are actually intelligent beings and will just stop, for those of you who continue to post, please direct yourself to the nearest grease fire.

    I actually just googled this just now after doing some of my kids homework for him,,,,and was wondering how many others out there do this or if Im the only one since no one ever admits it. My son has one of those older mean teacher that everyone gets at least once in life this year. She is a homework tyrant. He needs some time to study things like multiplication facts and if he was forced to do all the homework she gives there would be no time. The homework is not beneficial to him, in fact its the opposite….just causes him to shut down. So YES I am among those who do their kids homework (not all of it, but the excess)….not ashamed….Im just trying to make the best of the florida public school system…..the next step is home schooling & were definitly not ruling it out….we could make much better use of our time during the day actually learning instead of his teacher pushing all the real work off on after school 9which should be at least partly playtime AND family time.

    I hate homework that you have to have parents for. Like my Health homework, which I still need to do. Every single piece of homework has to have a parent signature at the bottom. If it doesn’t, then it is marked as missing. If you do it at baseball practice, you have missing homework. If you do it at night, you have missing homework. If you do it on the bus, you have missing homework. A lot of people I know have stayed up till midnight to do homework. Not just the kids who have a hard time with it. Everyone. And homework where you need to interview an adult is just mean. It takes forever because you need a time when you have a parent, and neither you or your parent has important things to do.

    You lot are all fantastic whiners.

    Here’s my story: I’m currently a junior in high school and I am juggling ten classes (seven of which are AP), two clubs, and an instrument. I don’t depend on my parents because they couldn’t help me with homework even if they tried. I’m pulling off straight As and yet I manage to have a social life. I attribute everything to my bullheaded perseverance and hard work.

    To parents: you all must either be the type of overbearing parent who “helps” your children with classwork so they “succeed” or the type of “hands-off” parent who complains that school is “too hard” for your “poor kids.” First of all, may I remind you that your children are their own entities and it is an insult to them for you to say they are incompetent? Secondly, of course homework is important. Do you expect all of your children’s learning to be completed within the six or so hours they spend at school, five days a school week? Obviously homework is necessary to supplement and reinforce material introduced in class. I guarantee that doing homework will increase comprehension and make further assignments easier. Lastly, it is your duty as parents to act as support for your children. Do you honestly believe writing their homework for them is beneficial to them, whether or not you are trying to make a point to the teacher? Homework should be considered a privilege granted to your children to help them, not a chore.

    To fellow students: if you can’t handle the classes and the homework they entail, either drop a class or ask for help from teachers or parents. Be proactive. Don’t complain and emo around about what you think you cannot do, because that is the lifestyle of a complete waste of existence. Don’t complain that there is no one you can ask for help from either. You’re just not looking. Think about the great opportunities you have to learn and improve yourselves that millions of other people do not have and will never have. Don’t get stuck despairing on the hopelessness of school life, because it is not so. Education is your ticket to the rest of your life and it’s worth it no matter how excruciating the cost seems at the moment. Humanity is possibility. Man can do all things if he will.

    Homework in Elementary and Middle School was a piece of cake, I could get all my work done in an hour everyday before or after school, and I was an honors, high-ranking student.
    It’s not like that anymore!
    I’m a sophomore in HS in some of the most rigorous classes in the world (IB) along with AP, and the home-work load is ridiculous. 3 hours is an easy day, 5 to 6 hours a night is typical. What drives me crazy is how much time teachers waste in class. Our teachers give us extra work as if it’s nothing, and half of it is “required” but doesn’t actually count for a grade! If I skipped my classes everyday and only focused on homework, I’d be a straight-A student.
    I can no longer do sports or after-school activities, I’ve given up ALL of my hobbies, and I currently have a disgusting grade point average. I’m extremely sleep-deprived (often nights I do the or more hours of homework than I get sleep), on weeknights I sleep around 4 to 6 hours, 7 if I’m lucky. Being a teenager, I’m supposed to be getting 9 or 10 hours of sleep each night. I’m constantly stressed and when I accidentally fall asleep on a school night and don’t finish all my work I wake up in the morning very anxious. This has caused me to develop depression (was moderate, then became severe) and anxiety issues. I hang out with my friends about two times a year, that’s all. Most of the time I’m so tired while doing my work that it’s “bad quality” and so I get low grades on assignments and now my GPA is so low that I’m afraid I won’t get accepted into college…
    argh! There really needs to be a law restricting the amount of homework given to public school students and the school day needs to start at a later time during the day. I get up at 5 and walk to my bus stop in the dark.
    I can’t even take a shower or walk my dog everyday because of how tired I am and how much work I have.
    Teachers complain that they have as much work as us because they have to grade all of our papers…at least they have a planning period! And grading a paper shouldn’t take nearly as long as actually writing it.
    I know some students that graduated from the program I’m in and they came back saying college is extraordinarily easy compared to high school. I’m thinking about switching out of my program, taking classes that involve less work and stress, going to a community college and then transferring to a university.
    School sucks, it really does. I used to love learning and now I HATE IT.

    Dear Sasha,
    Transferring out of your program into something more manageable sounds like a very good idea. And that doesn’t mean you’ll have to go to a community college if you don’t want to. Maybe you won’t get into an Ivy League if you’re in a different program but, who knows, maybe you’ll get into whatever college you want, including an Ivy League. If you have more time for yourself, more time for sleep, more time to socialize, more time to read, and more time to pursue your own passions, you will be a fine candidate for any college.

    Good luck!

    Finally, a website that understands what we kids have been talking about for years. I can’t tell you how many hours I have spent doing posters and diorama projects for some teacher who was convinced that this would teach us creativity. Explain to me what is creative about doing the same exact project as 80 other kids while following guidelines set by someone else.

    Perhaps the worst was one project I was forced to do at home in 7th grade. I spent hours making a collage that could not have any words on it, only pictures. Know what class this was for? English. That’s right. We were not allowed to write on a project for English class. Whoever decided that homework and projects like this actually teaches students anything is insane. It does nothing. If you don’t believe my story, take a look on the Boston Globe website and read the article “Why Have Homework? Beneath a Pillar of Our Education System Lies a Troubling Uncertainty.”

    Teachers always say how they will only give 20 minutes of homework and how that won’t be very much. But they aren’t the only teachers giving homework. I have about 7 subjects at school that regularly give homework and if I’ve done my math right that equals about 2 hours and 20 minutes homework each night. That might not sound like much but we also have about 4 assignments going on at the same time and we also have to go to sport games and sport trainings. Some nights i get home at 6 o’clock and they expect us to do all that homework while also eating bathing and making sure we get a good nights sleep ready to learn more things tomorrow. Well all the homework I do seems to be completley pointless and doesn’t help me AT ALL. In fact it just seems that homework has made me stay up far too late at night and been angry in the morning and has gotten me in trouble at school. END THE MADNESS! STOP THE HOMEWORK

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

    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.

    999 You must get out and do an item, be proactive in place of sitting and seeing and ready. While the colour combo is quite “in” for spring, the fit is completely off and washes the 32yearold out.

    I’m mostly a straight A student and I’m nominated at school for the Presidential Awards for Excellence or something, but its bogged me down so much. I’m in eighth grade and most nights I work past midnight doing homework. Sometimes I’ll fall asleep doing homework at the table or on the couch. My parents help me with what they can (not much), but despite me and my sister getting good grades as a family we don’t really care about grades that much. My parents say as long as I do my best. I’m so tired of it, though. I don’t have time to do anything – at all. I’m seriously thinking about going on a strike and I know my parents with support me since they’re tired of it, too. Anyone with me? ‘Cause a national strike would be pretty awesome.
