China Daily | Updated:2017-02-21 07:59Xia Ming/China DailyThe second semester of the school year started on Monday, which means that parents will once again be burdened with homework as doing some of their childrens homework has become an obligation of the parents. Guangzhou Daily commented on Monday:It is not uncommon for parents to post an SOS message on their social media, calling for help to finish a school assignment for their children.
Customized homework for students that requires the assistance of their parents is a manifestation of quality education.
But it has become an extra burden for parents, and it means that teachers do not know their students genuine performance. Children will lose precious learning opportunities and confidence to complete assignments by themselves.
There is no problem in liberating children from the mountains of textbooks and workbooks, or in parents helping their children to solve problems and participating in their childrens learning process.
But the problem is that the assignments cannot go beyond a childs age and ability, the need for parental assistance should be limited. After all, homework is an important carrier of school education. It should be led by the school and completed by the students independently.Related StoriesHomework is for children, not parentsHarder homework comes with new techMainland companies urged to do homework before takeover dealsTeen trapped in elevator uses time to finish homeworkCartoonsDrunk drivingChinas exportsAnimal protectionAbes sale for China threat theoryWhat men loveCartoons of the weekMost Viewed in 24 HoursFroum trendsIs Valentines Day too commercial?Should parents arrange dates for their children?ColumnistsChina can help boost European Unions economic growthAbe in the firing line for his dependency on the US allianceForumFeatured ContributorsTrump cannot afford a trade war with ChinaChinas One Belt, One Road, a drive for Great Britains businesses?China Daily Bureau ChiefsChongqing and Chengdu City Cluster on faster trackXi-Ma meeting brings historic opportunitiesStar BloggersHow is General de Gaulle remembered in China?Why I cannot continue studying in ChinaBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
