For me it isn't that I am against homework at all. But it is the amount of homework, my 6 year old loves doing homework (which is great, because I hate it!), reading and writing. I went to check on dinner while he was doing it and when I got back he was asleep at the dining room table. He is exhausted. Just 5 days a week at school at that age is enough surely? I totally get that you have to amp it up when they are older, but I just think when they are young it is too much. A book at bedtime perhaps, but that is enough I think.
