Mom Says Her Daughter Is Done With Homework, Facebook Post Goes Viral

April 30, 2017

A mom fed up with her daughter's heavy homework load decided to do something about it.

Earlier this week, Bunmi Laditan posted a screenshot of an email she sent to her 10-year-old daughter Maya's teachers on Facebook.

The email read:

"Hello Maya's teachers,

Maya will be drastically reducing the amount of homework she does this year. She's been very stressed and is starting to have physical symptoms such as chest pain and waking up at 4 a.m. worrying about her school workload.

She's not behind academically and very much enjoys school. We consulted with a tutor and a therapist suggested we lighten her workload. Doing 2-3 hours of homework after getting home at 4:30 is leaving little time for her to just be a child and enjoy family time and we'd like to avoid her sinking into a depression over this.

Thank you for understanding.

warmly, Bunmi"

In the photo caption, Bunmi further explained her decision.

"How does homework until 6:30, then dinner, then an hour to relax (or finish the homework) before bed make any sense at all?" she asked. "Is family time not important? Is time spent just being a child relaxing at home not important? Or should she become some kind of junior workaholic at 10 years old?"

Bunmi's post has received over 70,000 likes, and the comments section is filled with positive responses from educators, child psychologists and fellow parents.
