I hate homework

Answer

Hi there,
 
Thank you for contacting Ask Alex.
 
It seems you’re curious about understanding the value of homework.
 
Homework provides students with the opportunity to review and practice what they’ve learned in school. It helps young people in developing useful life skills such as problem-solving, working independently, and taking responsibility for their progress. Additionally, it helps students learn the importance of time management, planning, and organisation.
 
While there are advantages to homework, there are also drawbacks. It can be time-consuming and may evoke feelings of stress and anxiety. Learning styles vary, and what works for one person may not work for another. Finding a method that makes homework easier and more enjoyable you is very important.
 
Some people find it useful to plan when they are going to do their homework and stick to that time every day. Other people prefer to do their homework at different times. Some people find it useful to just do a small bit at a time while taking breaks in between each subject. You may find it useful to do your favourite subject first to make it easier to begin. The important thing is to find what motivates you and helps the process become easier for you. You can find some more useful homework tips in this article www.childline.ie/homework-and-revision 
 
Often, young people need support when doing homework. If you’re stuck, consider reaching out to a trusted adult, whether it’s a teacher or a parent.
