Worst Things About Homework

The Top Ten
1 It takes up all of your free time

yes it does, and I felt sick and dizzy all last year because I was loaded with homework. I once stayed up till midnight right after I had the flu

Ikr, my parents and I could have so much more fun if not for the boring time eater known as homework!
We could go on a weekly trip, for instance, to England or Japan, go shopping at the mall, go around the city of Athens (where I live), etc.
As for myself, I could be playing my guitar, listening to rock music, watching live performances of bands like The Who or Deep Purple, but I have to do EFFING HOMEWORK INSTEAD! ARGH, IT'S DRIVING ME REAL MAD!

Yes. I do my homework during the free period we have, so I can sleep at home because I have been studying for a test on the pearl, by John steinbeck.

Ikr, and when you swear about it, you get detention!
Me: Finally, I can go home to listen to (insert album or song here)!
Teacher: Well, you have to do these 10 pages of Maths exercises for tomorrow.
Teacher: What did you just say?
DETENTION! Go to the headmaster's office, NOW!

2 Gotta do it during weekends

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

I have to study for a science test, study for a German test and write a Portuguese article of opinion (I am Brazilian). Even though it’s not difficult at all, it’s annoying that I have to waste my weekend doing school work. I am so used to it that Sunday for me now essentially means “School assignment day”.


TGI... wait, I have homework this weekend. :(

3 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.

Last semester I was invited to dinner at my uncles' house to spend time with my aunt and grandma who was visiting from CA, but I couldn't go because I had SO MUCH HOMEWORK! >:(

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

4 Gotta do it on your birthday

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


5 Waste of time

I literally go to the homework help page and press Huntington it gives me the answer because either way, I wounding be learning anything.

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.

Every weekday, I have to wake up, do my homework all day (with breaks for lunch and dinner and showers,) then by the time I'm done with some of it, I have to go to bed immediately!

Then the next day I do it all over again.

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.

6 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.

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.

It steals sleep from my sister. She is now constantly sleep deprived because of it.

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

7 Work at school all day, come home for more

This stress me out

that is so true

8 It's boring

It depends on the assignment. I once had to type a 10 page essay (yes, you read that right) on a history topic and that was very boring and another time I had to type an essay that connects my life to psychology in a certain way and that was very interesting.

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

9 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

10 It's too difficult

That depends on the assignment

The Contenders
11 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!

Per night is around 1 page of math science English and random $### yove never heard off. If you get the thing you've never heard of wrong, detention

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!

12 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!

Don't worry peeps I will get rid of homework by writing an essay

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

We don't need homework we r killing nature and wasting time!

13 Doesn't teach you anything

You're right. I sit and press the homework help button and then press hunt and answer over and over. The only thing I have learned is how to use a computer mouse

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.

This is the #2 thing I hate about homework. Today was our first day of homework (my teacher told us that before recess) when I walked out of the classroom I already made plans to destroy it! like throwing it an electric fence and burning it with a flamethrower. when I got home I did my stupid homework and I learned absolutely NOTHING! the only thing I learned is...wow, I can't remember a single thing I learned while doing homework (most of it was just filler. I'm in 5th grade by the way) My mind was completely blank I KNEW I SHOULD'VE BURNED IT! and don't get me started on the place value sheet I have to do!

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!

14 It has nothing to do with what you've just been taught in class
15 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...

It ruins summer! In 2016 my sister had so much homework that WE WERE UNABLE TO GO ON VACATION AT ALL THAT YEAR! >:(

16 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

17 It has caused teenage suicides

Ok be calm take deep breaths and exhale very calmly I hate homework as much as the next guy but we need to be calm and centered until the teachers give us no more homework

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

18 Teachers ask for it too early
19 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... :(

20 It's really stressful

Homework is evil!
Homework can kill you!
Say no to homework!

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 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?

22 How people hate it

Lol everyone hate it

My kid is lazzy because of it

23 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.

I do very hard homework, I fail some stuff and pass some, I get Bs and Cs as my final grades, and my Asian mom gets disappointed in me for it. Need I say more?

I cut becuzz of it

24 Was invented as a punishment

Yep, you got that right

25 It doesn't let you have fun

It depends on the assignment
