In my opinion, Homework is no good for students. Home should be a place to have your rest and to not worry about anything and school is the place to work your butts off. Like a job. It also, in some cases, ruins students grades.

(ctd.) grades. It often leads to conflicts in many families, takes away time from creative activities, and family time/vacations. As a teacher I give little or no homework, other than projects, and reading/mental math skill practice.

It is hard to motivate kids to do their homework, given the fact that most of it seems to be busywork, memorization of facts without development of higher-level thinking skills, and no research indicating that homework improves grades, part. in lower

At some point each day, have a lively discussion about the issues learned at homework. Try to have an interesting or funny fact that relates to that subject. Also, ask them what they think about whatever they had for homework.

In Elementary school, they should only get homework if they need extrz work on something. For goodness sakes, they spend 7 hours a day at school, aren't they supposed to learn there? How about some time to get exercise and have fun?

Make it a condition for enjoying privileges. Ask child when he wants to do the work (as long as it's not too late). Tell them to do the hard parts first (ending on a good note is best). Monitor child's abilities and communicate with teachers.
