Stressed-out parent

Dear Queenie,
The school my kids go to gives them so much homework that sometimes I help them by doing some of it myself. This summer the kids have big reading lists and math packages that they have to finish before school starts again.
We are all miserable. I want my kids to have a good education, but I also want them to be happy.
Queenie, why can’t they let the kids enjoy their summer vacation?—Stressed-out parent

Dear Parent,
Some educators believe there should be school year-round, with no summer vacation. They believe this would help the students keep sharp and prepared for the next (fall) semester of school and not forget what they have learned during the school year while “relaxing” in vacation time.
It helps if you encourage your children to enjoy learning as much as they can and to be proud of how much they have learned. It does NOT help them if you do any of their homework yourself.
