So sorry I have been missing from the blogging world. My daughter Alex had another big school assignment she needed to complete, so she has been on the computer for the last three days. This might be a great excuse to looking into getting a laptop, if her work load continues.
Thank you everyone for your comments on Thursdays post regarding the assignment Alex had due. In the end I went to bed myself and my husband got up early in the morning and helped Alex complete her Edward Scissorhands report. I have mixed feeling about the homework she gets sometimes. I don’t think that Edward Scissorhands was age appropriate for 12 year olds. There were a couple of sexual themed scenes I cringed at while watching it with my daughter. Children are forced to grow up too fast, I know our parents said the same thing about us, but I feels even truer today than it was when we was back then.
Homework adds stress to children and parents. How wonderful it would be if they could come home and spend time doing things they enjoy after a long hard day at school. This might sound naïve, there must be a good reason for homework or teachers and schools wouldn’t give it to students....Right?
Anyway I am going to have a late night catching up with my favourite blogs.
