2 It's too difficult

True

nah

3 It has nothing to do with what you've just been taught in class
4 Too much homework

During my spring break I had to read 7 chapters (yes, you read that right, 7 CHAPTERS! ), edit a few web pages, and do some Photoshop. While I don't mind the later 2, the 7 chapters took me FOREVER to read!

I do homework way to much then I get sleepy and get it wrong and get in trouble

I hate homework it is stupid and boring it makes me a slave!

You can have so much you don't have time to blink

5 Waste of time

I've wasted hours doing homework mainly because I don't do it at school. I would rather talk with friends instead of do work at school so I guess this is my punishment.

I sit through school (an already HUGE waste of time) and then I get homework. By the time I finish it, time for bed. come on!

No reason that people should be doing homework when they already have a long hard day at school

If It weren't for the load pile of homework and how I also have to study for a social studies exam, I could've already eaten, bathed, and would probably be doing something more relaxing to kick all the stress from school. - MLPFan

6 It's boring

YES! I use only 1 hour on my homework, and you get very bored.

why

7 Not enough time with family/friends

Picture this: Dad came from work, he wants to spend time with his son. Son: "Dad can't, you know why? I gotta do my homework.

That kinda hurt dad feelings - theDj7121

I do literally nothing on weekdays because of stupid homework which is as boring asf

I barely have any REAL freetime anymore. Like, hardly ever - MLPFan

8 Kills trees

Teacher: we need to save trees!
And what is homework done on? Paper of course and where does paper come from? A TREE!

It just kills them homework is bad your kid it makes them sick

Teachers need to understand!

Hw wastes trees we need other things from trees - Ihateschool

11 Doesn't teach you anything

Homework is more stupid than daylight savings. Imagine this: You come home after a long boring day of school and all you wan't to do is relax for like an hour. Go on YouTube for like 2 hours go outside and play for an hour and a half but instead get 3 to 5 hours of this piece of garbage known as homework. Not just homework though. Mostly school in general. Kids get stressed all weekend because of worries of schoolwork and it just disgusts me how some kids have to go through this kind of stuff. Like being punished for no reason.

I don't need to know that stuff and how do I use them in real life? I would want to know real life stuff not crap! - InfernoTopTenners

I learnt nothing from doing homework. Just the teachings from teacher at school.

right

12 Gotta do it over summer

I can make it work over the normal school year, but after finals, the last thing I want to worry about is next year's tests...

13 Gotta do it during weekends

Weekends are for taking your minds off school, not for doing stressful work from school.

Why teachers

I have to always worry about my friggen grades! OVER THE WEEKEND!

Teacher: Have a good weekend
Student: 😄
Teacher: Don't forget you have weekend homework
Student: SCREW YOU!

14 Won't let you sleep

One of my classes gives so many homework assignments and pointless essays that staying up until 2am every college night is becoming the norm for me. Everyone else seems just as sleep deprived, yet the teacher wonders why half the class is failing. - Entranced98

Yes, I know that their purpose for giving us homework is to make us hardworking but they should know that lack of sleep is dangerous too.

Never really had that. My teachers don't give me so much homework that I can't sleep.

Yep I have to stay up all night doing homewoork and I'm in middle school

15 Work at school all day, come home for more

This stress me out

16 It has caused teenage suicides

I have tried to commit suicide 15 times because of hw and another 5 for depression - Ihateschool

17 Family feuds

My parents are always fighting because of homework

My mom complains I don’t exercise enough. I do exercise, IF I HAVE TIME FOR IT! I don’t have time for it because I have SO MUCH HOMEWORK this semester!

I wish my mom would understand... :(

18 Doing it

No one wants to waste their time doing crap they already can figure out with common sense. Homework applied to everyday life is useless. If you actually needed most of the stuff taught in schools then everyone's parents would know how to do it yet none of them do. They can't help you with calculus because they've never had to use it. When will you use geometry at the grocery store? Are you ever going to need to find the angles of a cereal box at Wal Mart?

19 How people hate it

Lol everyone hate it

My kid is lazzy because of it

20 It's really stressful

I have no time for family and cousins over the weekend the teachers gave us hw

My mom and I fight over the computer and I have lots of homework to do and I really want to do it all at once but my mom keeps kicking me off of it and using it for her thing >:(

21 It causes depression because of its impact on your grades

Sadly they make it out like everything's riding on a few letters on a piece of paper. A lot of this needs to change - some of the obsession over grades could at least be replaced with teaching students other skills that will ensure them success in the workplace. - Entranced98

I cut becuzz of it

22 You'll forget about it anyway
23 Was invented as a punishment

Yep, you got that right

24 You don’t have time to be with loved ones

My sister had to skip several family gatherings when my relatives came over from CA because she had so much homework

25 Doesn't make sense

Math question:
If 2 trees are needed for this page of math, then how many idiots does it take to figure out that homework is just ******

Copy this number (234) ok, who copied 234? *everyone raises hand* That's incorrect!

26 I have no time for relaxation,

No time to just chill but teachers make it hard not to flip them off lol

Wha wha whawhawawa. Dude I have not had a dingo night of sleep, relaxing or sitting since August and it is December.

27 Having to show work on algebra problems that are easily solved on a calculator

I hate this so much

28 Recapping things that have already been done in lessons

Why redo a topic that you have already done?

It helps us remember it better for future studies, tests and exams and the like, but redoing the same stuff a thousand times is a different matter. - Entranced98

29 Doing homework about a new topic that you haven't even started

How are you supposed to know what to do when your TEACHER hasn't TAUGHT you what to do? That is their job and that is what they get PAID to do

30 You get home happy that school is over but realize you have homework
31 Gotta do it on your birthday

Teacher: Happy birthday! Here's tonight's homework
Birthday kid: NO 😭

32 It does not help you at all

Its true it does not teach you at all its not a teacher
