Benefits of Homework
What are the benefits of homework to children?

            Responsibility - Doing homework every day at the same time helps develop responsibility and prepares children for responsibilities they will face as adults.

            Reinforcement - Homework helps children understand that learning doesn't stop when the schoolbell rings.

            Self-esteem - Children learn self-esteem by doing estimable things. Completing homework assignments is estimable.

            Accomplishment - Taking pride in homework assignments helps children experience the satisfaction of a job well done.
