Little Boy is in eighth grade right now. I saw that he had recently googled “Why does homework exist?”
Although I understand these (honestly kind of preachy) answers given on Google, and of course I told my son that homework is good for him…. and he should DEFINITELY do his homework….
I don’t like homework any more than he does!
I ESPECIALLY don’t like it when I don’t know how to DO it!
Recently he had to study a bunch of equations on calculating the half-life of radioactive elements for his science class. I was lost, so we face-timed his dad, who is out of town for work right now.
That face perfectly describes how I feel about this homework assignment.
Seriously! Did I mention this kid is in EIGHTH GRADE?!?!
Why does homework exist again?
