You go through classes, learning new things, and at the end of the period, all the kids are thinking the same thing, "please, no homework." Most of the time, teachers will go through class and finally say," here is your homework for tonight." There is also the teachers that forget about homework until everyone is about to exit and says, " Oh wait, homework." All kids would agree that the word "homework" puts them in a depressed mood. All kids go home and work for endless hours on getting their homework done for the next day. Everyone saying, damn homework.
Everyone hates homework for one main reason, it is a huge time consuming activity. Homework really clogs up your day if you have an extracurricular activity as well. Since we already get home at 5:20 if we are lucky and have anywhere from an hour to three of an extra activity that night, we have little time to do homework. Since most people say ten o'clock is a reasonable bed time we have very little time to get our homework done. If you get home at 5:20, have a snack and go to the bathroom, it is already probably 5:45. Then you can do your homework for about one and a quarter hours before dinner. At my house, since we have long family dinners any night we can, we would usually not be done with dinner for probably another forty-five minutes. By this time, it is already 7:45 you most like have another hour and forty five minutes of homework. Now 9:30, we have little time to do anything before going to bed.
The day is much worse when you add on an extracurricular activity because you most certainly will be going to sleep after 10. Although some days you will not get the three hours of homework I just described, but you will most likely have at least two. My quote says, " let the kids enjoy life before life gets too tough," meaning that kids need to be able to enjoy life before they become a crazy hardworking parent. The schedule from before, has pretty much zero time to "enjoy life."
Every kid wants to enjoy life, doing things they want, when they want. Homework is just one way to take away time to enjoy life. Think about it, we are spending about one third of our day on school related activities.
That damn homework.
