My daughter is 7 and in grade 2. She just brought home a project she has to do. She has to pick an animal and do some research on it and then write a report. Considering she's not a great reader or speller how is she going to do this? I'm going to have walk her though everything. I don't mind helping with homework but this is just too hard for a grade 2 student and as a single parent I don't have time to do a whole project with her (nor do I want to do homework since I'm not in school anymore). And thats on top of the at least 1 hour of homework she has every night. A lot of nights she doesn't even have time to play with her friends or anything. Does anyone else think it's just too much for such a young child? How do you deal with it?
