These days schools burden students with a lot of homework which they need to tackle. Already they are taught so many things in school and they have to learn many more things at home. Sometimes it gets bit too much for the kid. Homework in some ways is essential too, but schools must understand that giving a lot of homework affects the child; as he always remains burdened with homework and gets little time to play. Apart from this if he does not complete his homework on time the teachers scold him and even mete out punishments. So, in a way homework becomes a torture for kids. Parents need to help their children in doing the homework properly.
