Bunmi Laditan is a mom that just had enough! She sent an email to the school of her 10-year old daughter saying that from now on, she is going to lighten her daughter’s workload.
This email has picked up a lot of steam online. On Facebook, it has over 61,000 reactions and 16,000 shares. Many parents sympathize with this situation.
Laditan told teachers that her daughter, Maya, needs to cut down on homework because it has been giving the child too much stress.
The girl was starting to exhibit physical symptoms as a result, like chest pain.
Laditan pointed out that her girl gets little to no down time, which even adults need after work.
Her daughter gets home at 4:30pm and does homework all the way until dinner time at 6:30pm. She then eats, and does not have time for much else. This would be stressful enough of a schedule for any adult, it’s just cruel to subject a child to that much unnecessary work.
One mom and blogger is throwing in the towel when it comes to her 10-year-old’s heavy workload. Bunmi Laditan actually sent an email to her daughter’s school explaining that she would be lightening her workload.
Laditan told teachers she’s allowing her daughter Maya to cut down, because she has been very stressed and is even starting to have physical symptoms like chest pain. Laditan said children need down time just like adults need after work. And when you get home at 4:30 p.m., work on homework until 6:30 p.m. and then have dinner, that doesn’t leave a lot of time, she said. Laditan’s Facebook post with a portion of the email has gotten over 61,000 reactions and 16,000 shares.
