Sorry, dear husband

I had an interesting discussion with E's school psychologist today, sparked by the homework battles detailed in posts past. Her take -- and she admits that she is pretty much alone among the faculty -- is that homework for eight-year-olds is crap. Ridiculous. Completely unnecessary.

I love this woman with all my heart.

Right on! Let kids be kids...

My sentiments exactly! If we ultimately want kids to have an intrinsic love of learning than at that early of an age to force them to do a half an hour or more of homework seems counterproductive to me!
