Parents Are Glad for Back to School
Are you stoked that your little people are headed back to school soon or are you bummed? If you're like most parents you're probably pretty excited. It's been a record hot and humid summer and when temps are unbearable, the days seem so much longer.
While your kids are probably groaning about having to go back to school, 76% of parents say they're secretly happy their kids are going back to school. Only 24% of parents say they're bummed.
Here's the catch though- as much as moms and dads like having their kids at school, they don't want them there all the time. 83% say they love having the kids around during the summer, and only 44% would want their kids to have longer school days.
The survey also found 70% of parents think their kids get the right amount of homework, 17% think it's too much, and 13% think it's not enough.
100% of kids think they get too much homework. Okay, the survey didn't say that I did. But you know it's true!
