Homework is suppose to help children and not stress them out, but this is not always the case. I know that homework can be very hard and sometimes it is intimidating to ask for help, but this only leads to problems. When students do their homework someone is not looking over their shoulder to make sure they are doing the homework correctly. This leads children to do homework incorrectly for days on end, and this does not come in handy on test days. If a student does not know how to do something, doing their homework incorrectly is not helping them. Yes it is good to have the student figure out how to work through certain problems themselves but I know that I feel homework is pointless when I don't know what I am doing. Teachers must make sure homework is beneficial and make sure the students know what they are doing before they teach themselves the wrong things.
