Effects of homework on teens

how much homework is too much

Are teens getting too much homework?

Yes, however the problem with this is that no single teacher is giving out too much homework, however the combined amount of homework from every subject adds up to be a ridiculous number of hours.

How much homework is too much.

Having too much homework can in fact be bad for teens health. This is because kids live and work in a circadian rhythm. This means that we are supposed to have 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work, and 8 hours of play. When people overwork or under sleep it can have negative effects on their health. As you can see having too much homework is bad news blues, but theres more. Homework has been known to cause stress teens and lead to depression. We are not saying no homework ever, but we ask teachers to lighten up a bit.
