Тема: how to learn to say no?

The trouble is, the American education system doesn’t agree with me.  Homework starts in preschool in many cases, and it only goes up from there.  They even establish quotas: Ten minutes per grade. My son’s in third grade now, which means thirty minutes a day.  What a surefire way to get kids to hate school.  Elementary-aged kids don’t need homework.  For seven hours they’ve had to focus on the academic sides of their brains with grown-ups telling them what to do.  When school’s out, it should be OUT.  Kids need time to get other needs met.

What do kids need?  Time outside.  Time with family.  Time goofing around and picking their nose. Time pursuing their own interests.  Time doing family chores.  And an early bed.  There you have it: Play, family time and sleep.   My kids get 10-11 hours of sleep each night.  Instead of homework, kids would do much better in school if they got their full quota of sleep and were in bed by 7:30 or 8pm.

It’s back-to-school time.  Time to write THAT letter again.  The letter to my child’s new teacher that explains why our family bans homework.

That’s right.  I care  about my children’s learning.  That’s why I believe tree forts win over homework.   Quite simply, I believe homework has no place in a young child’s life.

For many years, Beth Moore’s teaching has raised eyebrows among pastors and leaders in conservative circles.  Although concerns have been raised through the years, Beth Moore continues to be welcomed into the study groups within local churches where women read her books, study guides, and watch her videos with limited, if any, oversight from the pastoral staff.  Below I’ve documented three main reasons why pastors should fire Beth Moore from the women’s ministry within their local church.

In Paul’s letter to Timothy, he writes, “I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet” (1 Tim. 2:12).  Paul forbids women from teaching and having authority over men.  Therefore, the pattern of the early church was established by Christ who chose twelve men to be His inner circle and then entrusted the early church to their oversight.  From that point forward (post Acts 6), God raised up a plurality of men to serve as deacons who would serve alongside the plurality of men who would serve as elders.

Think of if you have ever been in trouble before, and if you haven t that s good. Just do what you need to do so that it doesn t happen. Maybe your problem is that you spend too much energy trying to get things done before you get home, and thus you are left burned out. While procrastination is considered a bad thing in this society, I would say that over achieving is also just as bad and you shouldn t aim for both as they will cause the other to happen due to tiredness and messing up an important sleep schedule. I m not saying you shouldn t do your classwork when you are there as you should, but just only do that when you are there and don t be like I used to (doing it (homework) in school so I didn t have to do it at home) or doing it the morning before it s due. Classwork is meant to be done in class and homework at home. If you weren t like me and just like you describe above, then make sure you just balance out what you are supposed to do in class and at home.

"No homework" is good, as long as you do some educational activities at home with your child. Find out what they are reading about or learning, and continue it at home. Look up a favorite subject at the library. Do art projects. Set aside time to spend with your child. Visit a museum. A child this young has no need for homework if his home life is enriching.
