Kids And Homework

I think it’s crazy how much homework kids are given.  I understand the importance of homework if a child doesn’t finish an assignment in class, or if a teacher gives a small amount of homework to teach the responsibility of taking something home, working on it, and returning it.

I think kids should be allowed to be kids.  They go to school from 8:30 to almost 3:30.  That being said, when they do have homework, which is every day…we help them with it.

According to a new study, parents who want their children to do a better job on their homework should start by improving their own attitude and behavior first.

The new study, published in Learning and Individual Differences, found that if parents had a more positive, supportive attitude and communicated the learning value as motivation — rather than focusing on completing an assignment or getting a higher grade — then the child’s attitude and motivation would improve.

More than 60 percent of parents reported being involved with their child’s homework once a week and 35 percent indicated being involved every day or more than once a week — only 4 percent said they are never involved in their child’s homework.

What do you think about the homework situation?
