Are you in Homework Hell? Hear what Andrew, Joanie and Chuck had to say!

Posted by   + Show Post

Recently, we asked: “Do you think your kids have too much homework?” Some moms felt that there was too much and others mentioned that the homework was so difficult they weren't even able to help their children.




Hear what Andrew, Joanie and Chuck from the Mad Life have to say and then tell us, Are kids getting too much homework, or not enough?

They seem to get the right amount for their ages. I'm just amazed how much they learn at an earlier age. when I was in K I was just learning the alphabet. My daughter is reading books now. I think we need to just be there for our kids and help make quiet times for them to do their homework in. :)

She gets enough I think ,but the math, not getting it. She's in 4th and learning things I never was even taught.

I hd to check on my boys, and often had to help them, wth the 12 year od girl-she always way ahead of me. She does her assignments as soon as she gets them. Very organized and driven.

I was with my boys when they were young. It was horrible.

My kid is 4 so no homework yet. I think an hour for homework is a good amount.
