vaporwavevocap: ryttu3k: darkwizardjamesmason: dienaziscum: fishcustardandclintbarton: huffingtonpost: Mom declares her daughter is done with homework in viral email. Blogger Bunmi Laditan sent her 10-year-old’s school a clear message. “Hello Maya’s teachers, Maya will be drastically reducing the amount of homework she does this year. She’s been very stressed and is starting to have physical symptoms such as chest pain and waking up at 4 a.m. worrying about her school workload. She’s not behind academically and very much enjoys school. We consulted with a tutor and a therapist suggested we lighten her workload. Doing 2-3 hours of homework after getting home at 4:30 is leaving little time for her to just be a child and enjoy family time and we’d like to avoid her sinking into a depression over this.” A++++ parenting 💜 I’ve talked with a whole cadre of child therapists and psychiatrists about this very issue. There is little conclusive evidence that homework significantly improves elementary school children’s grades, understanding of subjects, or facility with various operations, processes, etc. However, plenty of evidence suggests that ever-increasing amounts of homework for young children lead to stress, anxiety, emotional fatigue, resistance toward academics in general, lack of leisure time to build social/interpersonal skills, and poorer family relations.  (My kids were doing about 3 hours a week IN KINDERGARTEN, at age 5 – so that’s ½ hour every night, after a 6.5 hour school day, or else saving it up for long slogs over the weekend, even more disruptive. And that wasn’t including reading practice!) We have stopped doing homework altogether with my 7 year old as a result of severe anxiety/depression and a learning disability. She had gotten to a place where she had so little self confidence and truly believed that she was stupid and worthless, not just because of homework of course – but every time we tried to sit down to do homework with her, it’d end in tears with her really vehemently berating herself, and no amount of encouragement could ameliorate the damage done. Now, granted, she’s got other things going on besides just an overload of school work. But in NO WAY did the homework help her, either academically or emotionally.  No little kid should have to spend an hour or more each night getting through homework. Now, my deal with Siena is that if she wants to give her homework a shot, I will absolutely help her if she wishes for help, but I no longer force her to complete all of it or to work on it for some set length of time before finally throwing in the towel.  Guess what? With the pressure taken off, she’s actually doing MORE independent work now, purely out of the desire to learn and practice, than she ever was before we’d decided with her therapy team and school that homework was just not a thing this kid could handle. Luckily for my older daughter my school’s 3rd-grade team decided to hand out homework only 3x/week, and the sheets take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete. That is totally reasonable for 8-9 year olds!  Anyway tl;dr just because the school system may require it sure as shit doesn’t mean parents can’t, or shouldn’t, fight it. Do what’s right for your kid, and above all, let them be kids.  I eventually stopped doing homework because I was overwhelmed by it. There was an article just the other day in the local paper about a primary school that’s abolishing homework! You can read it here (autoplay video, gives you a few seconds to stop it). Homework is intrusive in a young child’s life. It makes sense for adults who will likely have to bring work home with them so in college it’s good training. But for young kids. No. Seriously I’m 100% on board with this. There are high school students expected to do three or four hours and beyond worth of homework every day. It’s fucking ridiculous. And I work in elementary school where we literally have little kids develop anxiety disorder and have panic attacks over homework and testing. This shit is not normal.: Maya's Homework 5:32 PM (9 minutes ago) Bunmi Laditan to Hello Maya's teachers, Maya will be drastically reducing the amount of homework she does this year.

Red dude tried to prove yellow dude wrong with stats, then got his "proof" exposed by the rest of the community later on.: 12:07 82%. .. 437 103Share 4h I used to do all 700 Naruto chaps in 4.5 days. Its one of those feats that you are super proud of but never dare to commit it again. No you didn't. That's 155 chapters a day. Chapters take around 20 minutes to read but lets say you're smert and fest and you can do one in 15. 155 x 15 2325 minutes 2325 minutes/60 38.75 hours... You didn't read for 40 hours a day. The only way you could've done this is if you didn't read any of the text, and I say that disqualifies you. Just read latest one piece chapter, took 4min 33s No clue what ure doing man Well i'm sure that makes you feel clever, but feel free to google it take to read a chapter of manga Most people on forums say around 20 minutes. Weeks of work went into that chapter and you spent less than 5 minutes on it, I dont see anything redeeming in that. 'how long does 20 minutes, 15 minutes? Not kidding, are you stupid? It takes about 10 minutes and could be done in much much less time. There are very fast readers of NOVELS, which are all text, and who can read whole novels in a couple of hours. I don't understand how they do it, but they do it, it's normal to them. And this is incredibly mucn more words than a manga. A student has to read some things really fast too, scanning pages while still following all the sentences (sometimes, sometimes not so closely). There are ways. I seriously can't believe you think 15 minutes is the maximum... I seriously cannot grasp this stupidity. Not only that you yourself find this the maximum speed but automatically assume it would be for the rest of the world - when probably even most of your friends are much faster without any training... People will of course upvote because of show effect and... I've said too much. . 1h You're either 14 or have a learning disability, this is not how to talk to 011 5m Lmao you are a dumbass. 9m I'm a dumbass because you talk like a cunt? Interesting theory, stupid but i 20 minutes? Idk but I believe most people can read a chapter in 5-10 minutes. Takes me 5 on most. 13m it takes me about 3 or 4 mins for a speedread but since i dont have cellular date on my phone so i have to read slowly or my train ride would be boring if i read the chapters so fast lol. 30m Very impressive, you must be incredibly Chapters normally shouldn't take 20 minutes to read... that's a whole minute per page. Unless you're reading an extremely dense HxH chapter where every page looks like This (HxH manga spoilers!) then it shouldn't take nearly as long. Most pages have only a few lines of text and easy to follow paneling. 1h Why wouldn't you take a minute per page to read something days of work has gone into? 2 th e manga. If I like and want to appreciate the art I'll take as much time as I need to take it all in (it took me several months to read Berserk for just that reason), but if I'm only in for the story I don't see why it would take more than a minute. 58m So a minute is about right.
