Homework for my sixth grader is taking hours each night. I thought homework was supposed to be limited to one hour?This is causing a lot of stress for our family.

A.  Please reach out to your child’s teachers to discuss your child’s homework load directly.  There are many factors that contribute to how long homework completion will take and this may vary student by student (e.g., other distractions such as TV or phone, fatigue, working at a slower pace, course load).   Hours, meaning two hours or more every night for a sixth grader, does exceed recommended guidelines.
