    I believe that every student is different when it comes to preferences and attentiveness. All students should get into a good routine that provides them how to figure out how to pay more attention to their homework. Although most students, like myself, aren’t so fond about the idea of doing homework, it is something that has to get done in order to have a successful school career. I agree that accounting homework is a priority and it must get done; Although I do not agree with the point that we must keep up with the Chinese, who do six hours of homework before Breakfast. That should not be a requirement for students of America; Although 7th grade students of China may be equivalent to the 11th grade students of America, we are a growing country that should stay at the same pace we have been going for many years. Phone use during homework is a BIG distraction, especially with all the social media at the tips of your fingers. If there is an electronic device in ones hand while trying to do homework, it would probably take them twice as long to get their homework done than it would normally. Music could definitely play a huge part in concentration on your homework. Listening to music with a fast pace and a lot of lyrics that you could sing along to, could cause distraction and you could lose focus pretty easily. Even though I am not a “homework lover”, I do not believe homework was made to stress students out. Homework could be used as an extra help by reviewing the days work.

    I disagree with this article. Homework is time consuming and if you have extra curriculum and you wont have much time to do work. Over time you will have to much homework. Then you fail the class or classes.

  • Totally disagree with this article. If kid is smart he can gain enough knowlegde from classwork, he’ll never need extra wasting time at home while he will sit and repeat all the stuff from class. It is up to parents will their kid do homework or not, also it is up to parents to give their kids little homework help.

    The student who are looking for custom writing help are advised to check them about their work policy, writing style, their proficiency and their research ability. Also you should check their work delivery policy as you might need your work on time. If you would ask them these things, you would considered as smart.
