My He Said's are usually sexual in nature but this week's, unfortunately, is not.
My son started middle school this year. Things are calming down, knock on wood, but once school started getting into the real nitty gritty my boy seemed to lose it a little.
One thing he struggled with was homework. Forgetting it, forgetting how to do it, not writing the whole assignment down, etc.
My frustration level was at it's peak. One day I yelled, "I feel like I am doing more of your homework than you are!" That's when something occurred to me.
Why do kids even have homework? I know that may sound like a crazy question but I am serious.
Shouldn't kids be allowed to go out after school to discover sports & all sorts of adventures without having to worry about homework? When I worked at Verizon I got overtime for anything after 8 hours a day! Why do the kids have to go to school all day then come home to go nuts with this stuff all over again? Most parents will tell you that it's nothing but a battle so what is the real purpose here?
Do I sound like the clueless, dumb guy that I am or do I have a point here?
