The latest in our society has schools banishing homework. I just don’t get why we want to expect less from our children. I am not a fan of excessive mindless homework but learning time management and prioritization are keys for life.
Having raised three kids who were involved in numerous extracurricular activities outside of school as well as in school clubs. Their first responsibility was their homework, education first. Too many parents write excuses for their kids because they had games etc., how will this help them as adults?
I would love to see schools keep physical-ed in the curriculum, apply healthy eating logs and skills to health classes. Perhaps if we can integrate learning between school and society we will advance our children’s desire to learn. Encourage discussion on news what is going on in this world and how it is a reflection of what has happened in the past.
We are worried kids are tired, that they are not getting enough sleep, well I remember watching Little House on the Prairie and they seemed tired as well doing homework candle side after chores on the farm.
I love to spoil my children but not setting expectations for them is bad for society as well as home life.
That is my rant for today, now go play, hug your babies, check their homework even if you have to fake that you understand that math equation! 😏
