With recesses getting shorter and workloads at school getting bigger, kids are getting to have less and less free time. Is this really good for our children? One mom thinks not.
When Bunmi Laditan’s 10-year-old daughter started experiencing chest pain and waking up in the middle of the night dues to stress, Laditan decided enough was enough. So, even though her daughter loves independent learning, the mother of 3 emailed her daughter’s school to let them know she was done with homework. Following the email, Laditan wrote a now viral Facebook post about how her home is now going to be homework-free: “My kid is done with homework. I just sent an email to her school letting her know she’s all done,” Laditan writes. “I said “drastically reduce” but I was trying to be polite because she’s finished.” The post has gone viral since with over 53k likes, 12k shares, and thousands of parents from all over agreeing with her.
