If you hear a story that starts off with “back in my day…” typically that will be followed by a tale of how life was much harder back then than it is for kids now. Kids today may have a case for their homework load being much heavier than it used to be for kids. Especially when the signs include a 10 year old having chest pains.
From Bored Panda: “When Bunmi Laditan’s 10-year-old daughter started experiencing chest pain and waking up in the middle of the night dues to stress, Laditan decided enough was enough. So, even though her daughter loves independent learning, the mother of 3 emailed her daughter’s school to let them know she was done with homework.”
This was the email that she had sent the school
A number of people would agree with her.
What do you think? Is the homework load too much these days?
