Don't even get me started on homework. I am an anti-homework mom. The kids go to school for the majority of the day, it simply isn't right that they come home and do homework. I insist on reading everyday but we don't call it homework because I want the kids to love to read and who loves homework? If they are slacking at school and don't get their work done then, by all means, give it as homework. I'll make sure it gets done and that also they don't slack off at school anymore. Other than that I don't support homework at all. Especially in the elementary years.
Yes, teachers, I'm one of *those*parents.
