Every day when children go home to school they always bring home works. The amount of time that spent when the children spent their time varies from minutes to hours. Sometimes, the children do their home works not only in their tables but dining tables. When the parents see their children make a pile of homework until the midnight, they always question the benefits of the homework. Some researchers even find that it is not the school’s obligation. Many evidences are found that there is no improvement when the children do their homework. In fact there is proof that the homework can make the student’s interest in study gone. Some schools even banning homework.
Mary Jane Cera, the academic instructor of Kino Academy a private nonprofit school from kindergarten to 12th grade which keep no homework for all grades, said that it is for keeping the student joy of studying. The school itself prioritizes the creativity of the students and social. The proponents of homework believe that homework teaches self discipline and time management. However, this is often challenged by the idea that if they don’t have a natter with homework they could lose their sense of autonomy. In Kino academy, Mary Jane said despite the students never had homework, they often take their own favorite activities such as music experiment, and writing. One of the reasons why we maintain homework is a later test of PISA that said America placed 25th in math and 21st in science. However, again, this idea is attacked by comparative tests of students in Japan, China, and 2 cities in America that there is a connection in homework and academic achievement. (more…)

Autism is a rare case of mental problem that happens to children. It is a case where the children have their own world and does not have the empathy and interest in the real world. This means, they tend to shut themselves completely from their community and only want to accept what they want to believe. This makes children who suffered from autism has a major problem in socializing with the other children. However, it does not mean that children who suffered from autism have low intelligence. On the other hand, children with autism spectrum disorder tend to show an amazing degree of intelligence and creativity. The real downside of children with autism is just their lack of empathy and interest of the world beside their own imagination and favorite activity.
For children who suffer from autism spectrum disorder we need to give them more extra attention and love. To make them take more interest in their environment craft activity is a good option to do.

However, there are several signs that can make us detect the probability of this syndrome in our children.

The first sign we need to consider if our children have an Asperger’s Syndrome is by monitoring their activity with the other children. Children who have this syndrome tends to play like an adult and mimicking quote or lines from television, books and comic. On the other hand when they are given new playing activities they do not know they will have serious difficulty to play it.

Is that all enough to make your children conscious of hygiene? The answer is not. You need more than this as being consistent is what you have dealt with next.
