Let's create more family time with our children in Polk County

This petition had 195 supporters

I am a mother of a ADHD boy that has to take medication when he is in school to focus. By the time he gets home the medicine is out of his system and he has homework to do which is a complete nightmare , the doctors suggests remedicating him so I can get him through it which also causes him not to want to eat supper  (the medicine takes away his appetite). I have also seen my niece not only spend all her time after school on homework but also spend the weekend on homework too where is the time to make memories and or even just have a conversation . THEY ARE NOT ROBOTS. We send our kids to school for 7 hours a day , why can't they accomplish the reading and math in the 35 hours a week that they are at school. Then the multiple teachers that only worry about the homework they sent home now multiply that by the 4-8 teachers that are giving your children the homework. Picture this most people work a 40+ hour work week and how many times do you think of how exausted you are and need a break (your kids are putting in 35+) . How many people actually look back on their childhood and wish they had more time to be a kid. Please if you understand at all that kids need to be able to be kids sign my petition.
