There are a lot of young children who are going through a lot of stress and having a hard time in school, which many adults attribute to bullying. But that is not the whole story.

1. Homework causes depression

Homework can have a bad effect on students mental and physical health. This is because too much homework can cause lack of sleep, headaches and weight loss. A study done by Stanford University found that 56% of students consider homework to be a primary source of stress and exhaustion.



2. Homework is bad for their social life

Homework can have bad effect on a student’s quality of life. Adults need time to do activities, relax and spend quality time with family and friends, and so do young people! This just isn’t possible if they have too much homework that needs doing in the evenings and at weekends.

3. Homework affects student grades

Instead of helping with studies, homework can actually have a negative effect on learning. Too much homework can cause mental and physical exhaustion. The student mind is burned out and they don’t have enough energy to function and focus fully on lessons.



I don’t believe all homework should be banned, but I think the quantity should be reduced in a lot of cases.
