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?

I agree with Joanie about the 10 minutes per grade and I also think they they have too much homework after school. I feel that they are in school all day long and they need to be kids when they get home.

It would be alright to lengthen the day and not have so many extra activities after school I think they need family time.

I loved Chucks answer how much ever long it takes to keep them out of his hair works for him LOL!

My son has more than most, but that's because he works slowly.

I like the guideline of 10 min per grade. I'm scared to see what my kids will be doing

Thank goodness I dont have to worry too much about homework. My 1st grader gets about 10 minutes worth of homework a night. Its not too horrible.

I think my kids get too much homework.  When we home schooled we were finished by noon without homework.

My kids have some homework but not too much. They are in 2nd grade and kindergarten and homework is appropriate for their grades.

Oh wow 4 hours of homework? I think an hour tops sounds fair.
