Maya's Homework 532 PM 9 minutes ago Bunmi Laditan to Hello Maya's teachers Maya will be drastically reducing the amount of homework she does this year She's been very stressed and is starting to have physical symptoms such as chest pain and waking up at 4AM worrying about her school workload She's not behind academically and very much enjoys school We've consulted with a tutor and a therapist suggested we lighten her workload Doing 2-3 hours of homework after getting home at 430 is leaving little time for her to just be a child and enjoy family time and we'd like to avoid her sinking into a depression over this Thank you for understanding warmly Bunmi vaporwavevocap ryttu3k darkwizardjamesmason dienaziscum fishcustardandclintbarton huffingtonpost Mom declares her daughter is done with homework in viral email Blogger Bunmi Laditan sent her 10-year-old’s school a clear message “Hello Maya’s teachers Maya will be drastically reducing the amount of homework she does this year She’s been very stressed and is starting to have physical symptoms such as chest pain and waking up at 4 am worrying about her school workload She’s not behind academically and very much enjoys school We consulted with a tutor and a therapist suggested we lighten her workload Doing 2-3 hours of homework after getting home at 430 is leaving little time for her to just be a child and enjoy family time and we’d like to avoid her sinking into a depression over this” A++++ parenting 💜 I’ve talked with a whole cadre of child therapists and psychiatrists about this very issue There is little conclusive evidence that homework significantly improves elementary school children’s grades understanding of subjects or facility with various operations processes etc However plenty of evidence suggests that ever-increasing amounts of homework for young children lead to stress anxiety emotional fatigue resistance toward academics in general lack of leisure time to build socialinterpersonal skills and poorer family relations My kids were doing about 3 hours a week IN KINDERGARTEN at age 5 – so that’s ½ hour every night after a 65 hour school day or else saving it up for long slogs over the weekend even more disruptive And that wasn’t including reading practice! We have stopped doing homework altogether with my 7 year old as a result of severe anxietydepression and a learning disability She had gotten to a place where she had so little self confidence and truly believed that she was stupid and worthless not just because of homework of course – but every time we tried to sit down to do homework with her it’d end in tears with her really vehemently berating herself and no amount of encouragement could ameliorate the damage done Now granted she’s got other things going on besides just an overload of school work But in NO WAY did the homework help her either academically or emotionally No little kid should have to spend an hour or more each night getting through homework Now my deal with Siena is that if she wants to give her homework a shot I will absolutely help her if she wishes for help but I no longer force her to complete all of it or to work on it for some set length of time before finally throwing in the towel Guess what? With the pressure taken off she’s actually doing MORE independent work now purely out of the desire to learn and practice than she ever was before we’d decided with her therapy team and school that homework was just not a thing this kid could handle Luckily for my older daughter my school’s 3rd-grade team decided to hand out homework only 3xweek and the sheets take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete That is totally reasonable for 8-9 year olds! Anyway tldr just because the school system may require it sure as shit doesn’t mean parents can’t or shouldn’t fight it Do what’s right for your kid and above all let them be kids I eventually stopped doing homework because I was overwhelmed by it There was an article just the other day in the local paper about a primary school that’s abolishing homework! You can read it here autoplay video gives you a few seconds to stop it Homework is intrusive in a young child’s life It makes sense for adults who will likely have to bring work home with them so in college it’s good training But for young kids No Seriously I’m 100% on board with this There are high school students expected to do three or four hours and beyond worth of homework every day It’s fucking ridiculous And I work in elementary school where we literally have little kids develop anxiety disorder and have panic attacks over homework and testing This shit is not normal Meme
