PARENTS ARE TAKING ON A BIGGER BURDEN FOR HOMEWORK
Homework is just that, work done at home. I had it when I was a kid and it's been continuing for generations. Today we are more involved as parents than our parents were and that is a fantastic evolution. My gripe is I have two children and an emmense amount of homework to accomplish in a small amount of time and that is not quality time with my chidren nor quality study time. I am a single parent who works full-time. We get home at 5PM, after dinner homework starts around 6:30 and is rushed through to end with a bath and bed and more homework reading our books. Is this the life we want for our children? It is impossible to let your children do this work independantly. How do you incorporate extrcurricular activities? I understand the pressure our new curriculum standards put on our children but this "lifestyle" is not working. I know two-parent households that struggle to accomplish homework everynight. How do you keep your children in love with school when they are bombarded with it 10 out of the 12 hours they are awake? How do you keep your sanity as a parent in trying to keep up with the homework?
