What a fourth grader needs to study?
Do kids have to much pressure on them these days?
I mean seriously Little kids (5-12) are being pressured to look like absolute super models and- school work! My niece is in 5th grade and is learning stuff I didn't learn until I was in 9th grade!!?? She comes home and has about 5, 25 question worksheets, a whole 15 page book report to do in 1 night and has.. about 5 different tests in 1 day!! She gets 2, 45 minute P.E lessons a weeks and all they do is sit around and learn about the body- and occasionally does dodgeball!! She had a timed long division/ multiplication test and made a 85- According to the teacher she failed because she didn't make 100 and has no recess for a whole 3 weeks!! She has so much homework- I had to take her out of Gymnastics because she didn't have enough time to do both!! And obesity oh I could go on and on- People are trying to make kids like anorexic!!! My other neise was 55 pounds (8 years old) she was 4'3 and her coach wanted her to lose 25 freakin pounds so she could be 30.1!! And when kids don't look perfect- people become cruel to them!! Bye! A middle school student said this " have been really stressed because of the homework that is being assigned," a middle-school student from Utah recently wrote in an email to GreatSchools. "In pre-algebra, we get at least three pages of homework. In English, we get at least one page and a reading assignment, at least 30-50 pages in our books. Then there is science, five-six pages are assigned all days except Friday. In Utah studies, we get one page with the option of extra credit, which is another page. In French, we have to do two to three pages of verbs in the French dictionaries. In Spanish, 80 flashcards are assigned two days before the test. As you can see, I don't take any extra activities because I don't have time!" PLUS: I am not Exaggerating! My 8 year old neice is a regional gymnast! Her coach is a professional, and is super strict! According to my 8 year old he told her to lose 25 pounds-My homework is too hard and it takes way too long? Please help?
I seriously dread going home everyday to do it and then waking up every morning to dread the amount im going to get that day. I never knew it would be this difficult for me. I don't do any extracurricural activites and I usually dont go anywhere after school unless its a friday or something. Im 16 and im a sophomore. The homework usually looks like this for me: Math- Pg 455 in the textbook #1-40 L.A- Read a chapter in a book and write a one page reading response to it Social Studies- A worksheet about history or something Science- Usually nothing, sometimes a worksheet French- Pg 277 in Textbook #1-14 Health- A worksheet I pretty much just told you my homework for this weekend but thats how freaking intense it is! I come home usually around 4:00 and I go directly to my room to change and plan my outfit for tomorrow(im big on fashion) and then I usually have a snack and go on the computer for half an hour. By then its usually 5:00 and that's when I start my homework. Most of the time I dont understand my math and so i skip like 16 problems or I give up and stop doing it. For la i usually sit there staring at the wall because I dont know what to write or I dont even understand what the chapter was about. The other subjects are pretty easy even though they take me a while. By the time 7:00 rolls around I would have done my french, math(skipping a lot of problems) and like half of my la. Im always really tired and sleepy by 8:00 because I have to get up really early the next morning to finish my homework first of all, and my schools pretty far from my home so we have to drive a while to get there. Im so sick and tired of this. I used to have an A average and now its B average. My mom wont let me get a tutor because its "too expensive" and she said to go to a school tutor after school but I cant because I still have all that homework waiting for me and I cant risk losing an hour to do it. Im really stressed and tired and its starting to affect my health. I cant sleep knowing that i havent finished all of it and im really at my wits end. Please help me i dont know what to do anymore. :( Thank you.
