Homework is a given task to be done at home with the intention of furthering a child's knowledge and to assess if he/she acquired a learning. Although some argue that homework should not be given to children, it is also vital to note that it plays an important role in education. In my view, doing homework is necessary for children to really gauge their mastery of the subject.
Children would agree that doing homework is troublesome and much hassle for them. They will have a lot less time engaging in fun leisure activities and they would rather be playing and socializing with friends instead. I do understand the feeling because I too experienced that myself in my earlier years. Homework is tiring and unnecessary, nevertheless I had to do it anyway.
In that aspect, homework is vital in improving children's critical and analytical thinking. Also, it is a good way to bond with their parents and improve personal relationships which is a great way to develop the child's personality. In addition to that, the child's education is supervised and monitored by parents that are much involved in the child's education in turn presenting into a positive outcome. A parent can also make the time doing homework an enjoyable and fun time so that the child remembers the experience to be memorable and pleasurable.
In my opinion, homework should be given and encouraged by teachers to be done by children and parents together. All in all, this encourages a lot of trust between each other and children tend to present a good outcome from this experience.
