A million paragraphs in physics, three pages of algebra exercises, a dozen essays in Russian-judging by the time that children spend on homework, they are asked exactly that much. Our blogger, mom Anastasia Morozova, is surprised that her son is not given enough homework, and wonders why many parents are outraged by the time spent on lessons.

If you talk to the parents of students, it seems that the students are loaded with homework up to their ears. Moms and dads sigh that their children sit for days at lessons, do not rest, there is no time for mugs, friends, Hobbies at all.

I don't know about the others, but my son manages to do his homework in one or two hours, rarely having to sit for three hours. He is in the seventh grade and almost on the same five.

Maybe this is our school, the teachers are all very humane and do not load children with homework? But I doubt it very much. Although, who knows.

Standard homework:
Algebra, geometry — two or three exercises in the textbook. As a rule, these are a few examples and some kind of problem. If the child did not miss lessons, listened to the teacher, and always performed tasks himself, then it is unlikely that he will have difficulties performing such exercises.

My child copes in 15 minutes. Is it too much? It is clear that all children are different: someone will solve these tasks in ten minutes, and someone in 30 minutes. But, you will agree, it is not so much?

Russian — one or two exercises, plus rules, but not for each lesson. This takes another 20-30 minutes. Of course, this is if the child has previously learned everything, and he does not need to re-learn all the rules.

Physics-learn a paragraph, that's all. My child remembers everything from the lesson, it takes him five or ten minutes to repeat.

History is about the same situation as physics. When writing tasks are set, Yes, it takes more time, but history is not every day, and writing tasks are also required.

Foreign language — here, Yes, sometimes you have to work hard, especially when you ask a retelling or learn by heart. When you just need to complete tasks in a notebook or translate a text, it takes about 20-30 minutes.

Biology, geography, social studies — I don't know when my son teaches these subjects, but the fives come from somewhere. Sometimes I see that I am filling out contour maps for geography or doing tasks in a biology notebook. It's fast to write my research paper.

Literature — here we are lucky, my friend's memory is good, so any verse or biography of a writer learns in 10-15 minutes. He likes to read books, does it in the summer, and manages to read small works in the classroom or at recess during school hours.

I understand that we have a simple secondary school, for sure, in high schools the load is many times greater, but it is not only the parents of high school students who complain about the volume of homework. Parents, tell me what is asked in your schools that the child sits for five or seven hours for lessons? Very interesting.

I understand when you ask a project, an essay, but these tasks are not given every day, and sometimes not every month. Usually, these tasks are set not for the next day, but usually for a week.

Judging by the stories of his son, almost no one in his class teaches anything at home, at most, they write off the GDZ. Those who do something at home. On independent massively write off. And, this is bragged about in front of classmates. Someone tells how they sit at the computer for five or six hours a day, someone goes for a walk after school and comes home at nine o'clock, someone sits for days in social networks.

It's not my idea, it's the children who tell each other. So, maybe it's not the amount of homework, but the fact that children do not want to learn?
