Benefits of homework on kids

According to famedwriting's latest inforgraphic It has been there since the beginning of the formal learning system. It's sometimes considered bad as they say it limits the kid's time to be together with their families. However, when teachers avoid pilling kids with homework, it comes along with so many benefits. Kids that attend to their homework are believed to pass in their tests unlike those that don't. Teachers are able to notice weaknesses of each kid and this puts them at a better position to offer necessary assistance. Below are some of its benefits:

Plays an important role in improving focus.

When they interact with people that help them with the work, they tend to develop a strong focus on their work in their studies. This interaction pushes them to work harder so as to be successful just like them in the future. They learn to manage time and have each and every work completed correctly. Parents are able to participate in their kids' education and evolution. Therefore, they provide them with the necessary support for their studies. This reinforces the content of the lesson.

Helps them develop memory and builds intelligence.

They start to think in logical ways. It improves understanding and they start putting into practice the ideas. It gives them a sense of responsibility and discipline. They learn how to plan their work and this builds organizational skills which will be of benefit even in the future. A memory is said to be good when knowledge in the short term faculty is taken to the long-term faculty. A sharp memory is not something that we are born with. It is a practice that helps the brain to be good at retaining material. Music has been discovered to help one's memory, and since we cannot listen to it in class, school assignment is a good chance to pack material in our brains since we can work on tasks while listening to slow rhythm songs in our rooms. Tasks that are done at home. Therefore, it helps them boost their memory for future education levels or jobs. School assignments done willingly can also help with critical thinking. Thinking critically isn't a school skill, it is lifelong and is applied in school and at work.

Acts as a Motivation tool

Through the act of parents and other adults helping kids with their homework, it makes them feel that they should be responsible. The involvement of them makes them have a feeling that somebody is behind there back any time. It creates new energy for them to push on with their studies to make their parents proud. Those kids that complete their homework are believed to pass in their exams unlike those that don't. This pushes them to complete and correctly tackle their assignment. It acts an as a guarantee that the will pass their tests and not get into problems with their teachers.

Helps to solve complex questions

They are exposed to many resources like libraries, internet and also people who got ideas. It helps them to utilize the available resources to the maximum. With the help of these learning materials, they are able to ask, read more and explore the answers for the difficult questions. It impacts them with more knowledge and later in life they will not have difficulties answering the specific questions for they know where to get answers.

I Spent Most Of My Childhood Obsessing Over My Hair

How a terrible haircut grew into a shallow obsession with deep roots (pun intended).


I spent seven years of my life dreading every haircut. I spent seven years asking my hairdressers for "just a tiny trim off the tips". I would cringe anytime a class craft called for using scissors, terrified that someone would somehow miss their paper and chop off a chunk of my locks. I was ridiculously paranoid, even afraid that someone would try to sabotage me by attacking my hair (which, by the way, was not altogether delusional as one of my friends confessed to me last year that in middle school she did make a plot to put Nair in my shampoo. I'm talking to you, Anna Jones). Ever since a dreadful haircut in fourth grade, I was traumatized.

I knew, deep down, that this fear was pretty frivolous and shallow. It was ridiculous for me to place such importance on the state of my hair. It still sounds ridiculous when I think back to those feelings. But they were really intense feelings. Feeling really embarrassed when my fourth-grade friends wore their hair in braids or pigtails and mine couldn't reach anymore. Feeling like I had lost all girly-ness and beauty just because my hair wasn't long and flowing.

When I first cut my hair into that tragic, and (now) laughable style, my feelings of being less pretty translated into feeling less valuable. Somehow, losing ten inches of hair caused my worth to plummet.

By high school, my hair was down to my hips. I was not really afraid of getting it cut anymore, but it had just become a part of my identity. I was known for my long hair. I am a relatively reserved person, I don't like attention in unknown situations or when I'm in big groups. I tend to lay pretty low. My hair became a source of comfort, almost like I was hiding behind long, dark curtains of hair.

Anyways, I realized this weird strategy and attachment to my hair that developed and started planning out a time to chop my hair off during my junior year. The horrible haircut was years ago when I was but a child. It was time to get over myself and just cut off my hair, conquer my fears and move on.

I told myself that when I got my braces off, THAT is when I will finally get over this whole hair thing and will chop my hair off and lose the metal teeth, and emerge a woman. However, the braces came and went, and I told myself it just wasn't a good time.

Then, I said I would cut my hair short right before college. I would graduate from high school, move out of my house, chop off my hair and emerge a new woman!! However, graduation came and went and next thing I knew I was a freshman in college still clinging to the comfort of my long hair.

Basically, I kept putting it off. I was older and knew very well that I had so much more worth than just my dumb looks. Still, though, deep down, I was scared that I would cut off two feet of hair just to be left feeling like the sad, shy nine-year-old again. I kept planning then putting off my big haircut until this dramatic saga finally came to an end with a random haircut in Europe.

Exclusive Interview With Soul Singer December Rose

Exclusive Interview With Soul Singer December Rose


Soul Singer Rosie La Posta who goes under the moniker of December Rose releases the ballad Hanging On. Finding a vocal style of her own, she hits all the notes effortlessly. You can hear past influences but she still keeps contemporary. Think Andra Day'smega smash Rise Up. As far the inspiration behind the song, Rosie says, "Besides the grief of a crumbling relationship, the hardest part in moving on is realizing neither person ever really closed the door. 'Hanging On' really paints the melancholy of the process." She first made waves her first single "Ball Game" which received a New Artist Spotlight award and was featured on AOL/Slacker Radio's "New Pop First" channel. Give it a stream.

Can you tell us a bit about your new song Hanging On?

For sure! So 'Hanging On' is about the "elephant in the room" everyone is ignoring. The relationship is crumbling, no one's letting go and closing the door to that chapter in their lives. The song carries listeners through the reminiscing sweet encounter and desperate plea for truth to set them free.

How would you describe your sound?

Always the hardest question to answer!! haha With all the new music I've been working on, there's been a huge musical maturation. With that said, there is a lot of influence of different genres, but to keep it simple, I'd say Adele meets One Republic, meets Gavin DeGraw, meets Amy Winehouse.

What's your song writing routine like?

This has evolved a ton over the years and still haven't really found a routine. My most creative moments are usually in the mornings, in the shower, and while on public transit around the city. Super random!!! I think on average these are the times my mind has the freedom to just think about anything. So, little melodies or song concepts might come to mind, or lyrics. Sometimes on a great day, all of these things come together at the same time. Little by little I build it. I don't force the song to come together in one day if it's not there. I let the idea "sit on the slow cooker" until it's ready (can be super quick or super long).

Are you playing any shows soon?

With the holidays approaching, no shows for the rest of 2018, but booking for 2019 already so all that information will be up on my website shortly. (
