How To Do Your Homework On The Weekend

  • Weekends are breaktime

    Weekends are a time where people are supposed to have a break and spend time with their family. Teachers should not give homework because like I said weekends are supposed to be a break from school and just time to be lazy but students can't because they are worrying about homework. So teachers shouldn't give homework on weekends.

  • No Homework Over The Weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm 11 and I get so stressed over the weekend because of homework.Weekends are for family's to bond. When ever I ask to go to a friends,watch TV or play video games. My mom is like "check if you have homework and if you do then do it" So if we have no homework over the weekend, then everyone would be happy.

  • Why we need home work on weekend?????

    Like come on am 10 years and I never have a break. I have school 5 day than go a different school the to other days and those 2 days are harder thanks all 5 day and we need to go home with HOME WORK like come on its called weekend for a reason . Well it defats the reasons HOME WORK stress us kids out and parents make it worse by saying we need to learn and learn and so on us kids want to play we want to have fun but HOME WORE MESSES THE PLANES UP!

  • Homework on the Weekends is an Increasingly Depressing Cycle of Disappointment

    Every Monday night I sit in room and think about everyhing I have to do the coming week. I realize that I will be very relieved when the weekend is near. As the the week progresses, which each passing day I tack on assignment after assignment.
    I then start wishing and thinking "I can't wait for this week to be over....It'll get better...."
    It becomes evident Friday afternoon, and often even at the beginning of the week, that I will have several essays to write, tests to study for, and projects to complete in my supposedly two precious days of "relaxation."
    It's not even relaxation, it's more like trying to regain all those hours of lost sleep I lost throughout the past week and actually having time to do my chores. Not to mention conversing with family. I never have time for that Mon.-Fri.
    And so then this lack of rejuvenation leads me to harbour detrimental thoughts: was I not good enough to deserve rest? Am I not working hard enough, is my lack of energy not evidence enough of my dedication towards performing well in school?
    And so I complete my assignments with a hope that maybe the following week I'll earn a time for my body to physically rest.
    This cycle continues, and continues, and continues. And eventually, you become depressed and lethargic.
    So all of you adults who are trying to persuade the world we need longer work hours and more homework, let me tell you something: you don't understand! It's as simple as that. Yeah, sure you "suffered" through high school. But it wasn't nearly as hard then as it is now. So don't try to empathize with me or anyone else my age.
    And don't be surprised when the spike in adolescent suicides is due to an unbearable amount of stress from the "best years of our [teenage] life."

  • Having been to school, as a child

    I hated having to do home work at the weekend I mean I was in school from 8:30 until 3:30 so thats 7 hours a just about a normal work day 5 days a week then I had 2 hours of homework so thats a 9 hour day which as a child is a long day then I have homework to do over the weekend while everyone who is in work has the weekend off. So no weekend home work is a bad thing.

  • Weekend Homework is Counterproductive

    I am a student and weekend homework Is torture. I almost find it counterproductive. Instead of relaxing or spending time with your family, you are forced to write an essay or do a math packet. I just want a break but it seems to get worse and worse, the teachers dishing out more and more homework each weekend. It is HORRIBLE!

  • Well i am a student my self and i say no no no

    Yo yo yo i say no no no because the weekends are for children like my self to have a break and we need time to cooperate.However,the week days are also for children like me or any body else to do some work so i do not think it's fair to have homework on the weekends.

  • It takes away your family time and stresses you out.

    First off, kids already study alot on weekdays and rest of the day they just sleep till dinner time. Second off, we get homeworks from science, math, social, english and second language. They expect us to finish this in two freaking days. And then submit on monday. Homework is fine but not ok weekends. Why not give homeworks from 2 different subjects every week? Give us h.W on monday and we will submit it on friday or thursday.

  • No! We should not!

    As one of my teachers once said 'Our brains are like a Muscle, they need to be exercised, but also they need Breaks to relax.' Weekends are for relaxation. I know people will say 'But, We need to work Constantly, that's how the real world is.' But it's not. Most Jobs have Weekends off. So, What's it really doing? I know a few friends who have felt very depressed and just all around sad because of the Lack of Sleep the Past week has caused them. They are just children, by the way, they need these Weekends to relax and just have some good old fun. They aren't children forever, right?

  • Weekend homework is stupid

    It is a waste of time in general but when kids have it on the weekends it makes them crazy because they spent the whole weekend cooped up at a desk writing or typing. When they are crazy things can get broken and sumtimes the things that get broken could be valuble. This is why weekend homework is stupid..

    The 8 Struggles of Doing Homework Over The Weekend

    By Rylee Johnston - Feb 17 2017
    When you think of the weekend, you imagine hanging out with friends, getting out of the dorm and maybe hitting up a party. You are officially off school duty, but in the way back of your head you know that what truly awaits is homework.

    1. On Friday night you pretend it doesn't exist and go out instead.

    The last thing anyone wants to deal with on their Friday night is homework. The easiest thing to do is forget about it and go out with your friends. With an entire weekend ahead of you, you deserve at least one night of freedom.

    2. On Saturday you make your first attempt.

    Knowing that your homework won't finish itself, you decide to be an efficient student and do your work. Whether it be an essay or a reading, they all have one thing in common, though, there is nothing interesting or fun about it. With distractions surrounding you as well, you have to find ways to stay focused.


    3. To make it a little more enjoyable, you put some music on.

    At this point, you cannot take the silence and choose to put some music on. Instead of actually doing your work, though, you get lost in the music and end up singing and dancing instead of actually focusing on the work in front of you.

    4. But the moment you see a friend, you give up.

    Homework has left your brain, it's only been a few hours since you have last seen your friend, which is obviously too long. This is the perfect moment to stop what you are doing and devote all of your time to your friend. At that moment homework has left your head.

    5. You go back to avoiding your homework.

    You go out again and decide to pretend that homework is not a thing. While you may be having fun at the moment, your homework still sits in your room awaiting your return. At that moment, you don't care, it's only Saturday.

    6. You continue making excuses to not do it.

    Whether it be a messy room or that you're too tired from working a shift, any excuse counts as long as it allows you to put off your homework. Your inner procrastinator comes out as you continuously find ways to avoid the pile of work awaiting you.

    7. Sunday night comes around and you realize you still haven't done any of it.

    Those nights spent with friends are now back to bite you as it dawns on you that your homework is not done and is still due tomorrow.

    8. The all-nighter begins.

    At this point, the quality of your work does not matter, the only thing that does is getting it done. While the clock ticks away, you tell yourself not to have a mental-breakdown and get to work completing all of the homework you regrettably put off. 

    For those of you all-too-familiar with this process: you know the drill. If you're new to the procrastination station, don't lose hope, and always remember, if it's due tomorrow you can do it tomorrow.
