Hi everyone, I'm looking for opinions on what you feel is a reasonable amount of time a 3rd grader should spend on homework per night. I have to admit that I am a parent who feels her child is getting too much homework. I have been having my daughter stop after approximately 45 minutes of homework as I feel anything more than this is excessive for a 3rd grader. However, now my daughter tells me she is getting yelled at for not having all of her homework done and she is losing recess. I have spoken to the teacher once and have written a note, but have not really gotten anywhere on this. Basically, she told me that if she has trouble completing it during the week that she should make it all up on the weekend! Before I confront the teacher on this one more time, I want to make sure I am not the one being unreasonable. The typical amount of homework my daughter receives is about one hour, sometimes more. (Occasionally, there is less, but that is not the norm.) Soooooo, what do you think? How much homework should a 3rd grader get on a typical night? Thanks!
