Agreed. Just smile and wave, boys... Smile and wave.

That's funny when you think about it. Would the school carry through with a punishment from home?

The school years aren't terribly balanced when you consider that they send a lot of work home they don't allow enough time to do at school, but parents don't send things in for kids to do at school if they don't get them done at home, like the dishes, cleaning their room, etc.. Imagine kids taking in a bag of laundry they didn't get folded at home so they can get it folded.

So if the school doles out punishment at school, at school it should stay. Parents don't call the school and tell them to make sure Junior doesn't talk to his/friends because he/she is grounded.

Some of yall are cool parents, lol. My parents would come up to the school to discipline even after the school had disciplined sometimes.

Oh dont get me started on "too much homework".

I think the kids get too much. I mean does your boss they make you take work home do they and not pay you for it. Some do, but not many.

Well the kids work their hours at school. If they want them to do work at home too, then they should extend school for another hour as a homework session and then let everyone go home and not have to worry about school till the next day.

Let them be kids. How many parents end up helping their kids with homework just so they aren't still doing it at bedtime? Which actually isn't fair to the parent either, as no one gets to relax.
