  6. 6. Is Homework Too Overwhelming to Children? Some parents think that homework is mindless busy work. According to Etta Kravolec (co- author of The End of Homework), found that high school blamed falling behind in homework as a major de-motivator. Dr.Harris Cooper of University of Missouri states that overloading children in early years can ruin motivation.
