Last summer, when we were staying in South Carolina with my parents, my mother couldn’t believe that my kids had to do homework during their summer vacation. And she was also appalled by the amount of it.
Today, I left my kids with my mother-in-law for a couple of hours when I went to work. I didn’t give her any directives, but while I was gone she told my son to do his homework!
(For the record, my son is almost done, and my daughter has about 50 or so more pages to go, plus the annual bank-making project.)
