Friends,I’d like to share with you an article that was posted on nytimes.com on October 10. A parent wrote to this particular blogger about how to balance sports and homework for her child.
“Dear Mrs. Lahey,My child is coming home after school and sports practices exhausted. He is reduced to tears when facing his homework. I do not want to take sports out of his life as there are so many wonderful things he gains, but he is not getting his homework done. Advice? “
This is something every educator and parent is confronted with, no matter if it is a high school or college student. You could easily substitute sports with any club activity, and this debate still applies.
