On an online debate website, a student speaks out about thru experiences with homework communicating.” We kids nowadays have a lot of stuff to do. By the time we get home the day is almost over and we dinner and sports (Debate.org).” We have seven hours of school and when u get home with homework (tons) and you have dinner and sports so if we had less homework we would be able to eat dinner or eat late and no sports. On Scholastic news have parents interviewed about how less homework we should have.” What’s bad for” parents, is generally worse for kids.” School (for my son) is work,” one mother writes,” and by the end of a seven-hour workday, he’s exhausted. But like a worker on a double shift, he has to keep going once he gets home. (NEA Today).” Seven hours is a lot of the day working all day and we never stop five days a week and we have homework which is bad for us, it makes us tired.” Decades ago, the American Educational Research Association released this statement: “Whenever homework crowds out social experience, outdoor recreation, and creative activities, and whenever it usurps time that should be devoted to sleep (Scholastic news).” Kids need to play outside and have a social life they need to enjoy their free time but there is no free time because of all the homework.
BACKGROUND Network Systems Solutions, based in Portland, OR, is a company that designs, installs and maintains small to medium networks for homes and small business.

Scenario Max's parents are concerned about his socialisation and that is one of the reasons he is in care five days per week. They feel he needs the opportunity to play with other children and to make friendships. At home he plays by himself and is willing to join in play experiences initiated by his parents. During his first two weeks at the centre Max is withdrawn and makes little attempt to play with or initiate contact with other children. His arrival each morning is very stressful and he experiences difficulty separating from his mother.
The alarm clock is going crazy. She doesn’t want to get out of bed. She expresses this by stating "A typical ten-year old child does not have to wake up at five in the morning to do chores"(Hemauer, 2011, p.83). She understands that if she doesn’t, it will cause an argument with her father and put extra work on her siblings. She talks about her hours of chores before school and how all of this helps her learn to manage her time wisely.
A Waste of Time or a Real Health Benefit? At age 12, most children start their Monday mornings off the same way. It starts by getting up and dressed while trying to think of any possible reason to stay home and far away from school. But as we all know, the plans somehow do not work out and school becomes reality. Classes begin on time like they do every other day, and for the next few hours all that is looked forward to is the hour lunch and recess that seems so far away.
Everyone had a cell phone or computer at home to talk with each other on MySpace. I didn’t get a cell phone until I went off to college and I didn’t have money for the latest things or clothes. I didn’t start working until my senior year, I felt so behind everyone else and I felt that they were different from me. I started hanging out at the school library every lunch period and burying myself in my books. In Merton's strain theory that discuss how people react when society’s goals for success does not provide the means to obtain them.
We hardly paid any attention to our food because we were too busy with our technology devices. It didn’t just happen during lunch time; this went on through the day, in class, in hallways between classes and even on the bus. There is no doubt that technology today has its effects on the younger generation. My little brother who is only in the fifth grade was sent home one day from school with a laptop and a parent letter. The letter stated that all homework was to be done on the laptop for the remainder of the year.
My personal learning style tends to be on aural, the “noisy” kind of environment. I can never sit at one place either at home or school without any sounds at all. I just need a bit of noise to do my homework and any other assignments. However I also have visual and socializing style too. Over the summer I traveled to two different countries for my first internship to learn socializing with other colleagues and a bit of visual through my internship at the companies.
