'No Homework' Contract

Finally! I agree! I mean, if kids are in school 7 hours a day at the minimum, why are they given soooo much homework? This never made sense to me. Kids need down time too after such a long day. So add in chores at home and that's a pretty taxing day. I don't really like the schools ruling my life to where they not only have my kids all morning and afternoon, but that they'd also have my kids work at night? I mean, good grief. I wish I had thought of this when my kids were in school.

See, I don't get it. We're done with all school and lunch in five hours. They can't finish in eight?

I used to be all for lots of homework because I felt that my kids would benefit from it. But then it became so time-consuming for them to get all of their homework done, that they wouldn't have time to do their chores at home, let alone get to bed at a decent time. I agree with Mrs. C. When I homeschooled my second daughter for preschool, I only spent maybe one hour a day, sometimes every few days, and she had everything learned that my oldest daughter was taught in Kindergarten.
