Pressurising Students

May 6, 2007 2:55am CST
My son is enjoying holday since first of this month for one month. Infact he is not actually enjoying. The teacher gave him a bundle of homeworks including writing of figures from 1 to 1000. What do you say about giving too much homework to children?

Nowadays,many teachers give bundle of homeworks for students.students can not get free time.It makes them pressured.They become inactive.they lose their interest in studies. I am a teacher.I conduct my own tuition centre.I have 50 students.I am not interested to put more pressure on children.Friendly attitude is the best way. A teacher must understand the student properly.every student is deferent. so,we have to treat them deferently. try to understand interest and calibre of your child. If the teacher does not ready to understand the situation,you have to try to discuss the matter with school heads. method of teaching is very important. If you are not satisfied with their method,it is better to change the school. discuss the matter with experienced teachers. Do not waste the time,it is your child`s future. wish you and your family all the best.

In our days of holidays we didnt have any homework at holidays and we enjoyed our holidays very well also,but at todays fast pace life every body is trying to become ontop of other or people are trying to become great people,so with that in mind it will be good for the kid to have studies at these times ,but i dont like that i will got for leaving the kid for play rather than impossing homework during summer holidays .

Learning should be fun and should not put undue pressure on students. I can imagine how your son hated the loads of homework his teacher has given him. The intention could be good; that is, the students are learning something even while on vacation. The teacher might think that you parents welcome the long homeworks; this is now the time to speak out. . write a letter to the teacher, discuss this in PTA meetings, etc. Parents should be heard also along this line. . .
