They come home with about an hour or two of homework each. Here's what I don't understand.
I do the kids' homework, I make sure they're well rested for school. I make sure they do their reading. I feed them a nourishing meal. I discipline them.
If I am able to get ALL this done in the THREE hour span I have them, what on earth are they doing at school? How can YOU not provide them with enough education in the SIX hours you are with them? Why do I have another TWO hours on top of it?
Seems to me someone isn't pulling their weight.
I do not DO their homework. I meant be with them while the homework is being done. I'm normally also cooking or cleaning at the same time but I'm there to make sure it's done and done correctly.
Holy cow! That's a lot of responses. Anyway, here's why I have an issue with it. As a family, we get home around 4:40-5:00p. And, that's with a pretty good FT job.
If they had a half hour of homework - we'd be able to have all of it done by 5:30. They could go outside and BE KIDS. But, not its a rush to get everything done in the evening.
Kids deserve to go outside and play. They shouldn't spend an extra 1-2 hours doing homework. Period.
