My 13 year old had homework for PE over the weekend she was supposed to watch a football game and write a paragraph on it. We have had a busy weekend yesterday was skating practice and Costco,target and grocery shopping and today we went bowling for my sons birthday and are headed to dinner. So I told her I would write her teacher a note telling her we didn't have time to sit around and watch a football Game this weekend. Would you cancel your plans for PE homework?

For an important assignment, possibly. I don't consider watching a sporting event important.

have her watch a video about the rules of football, read a recap of that particular game's events, and then write it.

Hmm... I think I'd get a football game on the internet between the busyness so the homework could be done.

Go all feminist about how it's degrading to watch that "game" ;)

Just have her watch the highlights and write from that. There is too much downtime in football games anyways.
