more homework please!

I’m not a believer in tons of homework. With some of the kids I tutored, their moms would call and ask why I haven’t given them much homework. The whole point of homework is to reinforce learning, or at least that’s what it is to me.

But it seems to me many parents want their kids to be laden with tons of homework because that’s the thing that makes them feel like their kids are learning something and that they, the parents, are getting their money’s worth from the tutor.

Homework should be meaningful and given with the objective of reinforcing what the child has learnt. Homework for homework’s sake is a no-no with me. What’s your view on homework?

this mom loves…

… wedges… no, not the ones you eat, the ones you wear!


lightning and yawns

It’s raining outside and for a while, I’ve been hearing thunder… which means lightning can’t be far away. The only thing I can think of is, leave my modem alone, I got work to do here! Yeah, if it starts to storm, I might just have to turn off my internet connection and unplug my modem. Yes, primitive, huh? Keeping my fingers crossed here. Off to catch some coffee *yawn*.

plogging along, or is it blogging along?

And so we keep churning out the posts. It’s getting to the point where I’m starting to see blog posts on my wall, on the place mats, in my cup of coffee… so yeah 😆 . Surprisingly the girls and I have only made on snack run for guacamole and chips. I guess that tells you how much fun we’re having. And on we go to another hour of posts….

If you’ve got a parenting-related question, feel free to plonk it into the comment box and I’ll try and answer it in the next post or so. I need all the ideas I can get to keep going, thanks.

If you feel like pledging any amount, please click on the little yellow button on my sidebar to do so. Any amount would be appreciated.

… your favorite Disney princess?

The girls and I used to watch a lot of Disney movies and cartoons. We love Ariel, the little mermaid with gorgeous hair.

have you pledged yet?

I can hear some birds calling outside. Isn’t it wonderful to be free? Help end cruelty to animals. Sponsor me as I continue plogging and blogging along for the next 14 hours or so. Don’t hold me to the number of hours, my math may be as messed up as my sleep-deprived mind is right now.

I’m open for your pledges to sponsor me as I blog for the ASPCA against animal cruelty. Come on, you know you have some spare change somewhere for our furry and feathered friends.
