Never-ending homework

There seems to be quite a number of homework to do for Brendan. There was one time, when he came back with 5 homeworks - English writing, BM writing, numbers writing, coloring and chinese!

Before Brendan started his daycare, he used to dread doing his homework at night. I tend to lose my cool when I wanted to do my own things and he was getting tired of his homework.

Eversince he started daycare after school, he finished his homework in school with the personal guide of his teacher.


After daycare, he can actually asks for more colouring homework to do! He enjoys doing homework now though I only limit him to basic reading and colouring. I wonder what got into him. Maybe my teaching method is wrong, or maybe I'm just plain lazy and impatient to go through this homework.

Brendan is bad in spelling and reading, but loves painting. He took after both daddy and mummy in the arts department cos' I love drawing and painting when I was young. Daddy is also a good artist as well. Well, afterall, I took after my dad who is a superb artist.

Eryn, on the other hand, also took after me in the music and sports department. Eryn can really run, and run, and run, so unlike Brendan who is always complaining of getting tired.

It was good meeting you at the MSP last Saturday :D

So sad that 4 and 5 year olds have to deal with so much homework already. Am I the only one who feels our kids are getting workbook burnouts?? I was at the Popular bookstore yesterday and actually felt sick to the stomach looking at the workbooks section. AAAAAAARRRGH!

What has happened to a carefree childhood? There is lots of time for stress and dealing with responsibilities when they grow up.

Ya, Jo. art class would be a future option cos for now, I'm still coaching him personally. They simply love it don't they?

mumsgather, wen & chanel, I think we should pool our anger together and dump it to our hubbies! hehehehe

Hey, Min, you certainly look good in person! Hope to see you around soon :-)

No one beats me when it comes to loosing my cool coaching Alycia in her homework. Alycia can't do spelling too :( She loves drawing and writing non-sense!
