Bec’s What’s Trending Topic:

A mum was baffled that her daughter’s teacher assigned homework for the parents. Her daughter’s homework was to write her own chapter of a Roald Dahl book. She noticed another set of instructions that asked parents to go through the chapter her daughter had written and identify features like noun groups, adverbs and direct speech. Carolyn said this task added unnecessary stress to already busy day. She also argued that the homework could embarrass parents who don’t have a good knowledge of grammar and might not be able to complete the task. In the end, she agreed to carry out the task because her daughter was excited to know her mum would be reading her chapter. “My honest feedback is that doing that homework added extra stress and pressure to my already busy week… And I don’t think I’m the only one.”
