Homework Not Healthy Before 6th Grade
PROTEST MARCH BEING ORGANIZED, NOW!
Here is a hero in the making - at least in my book. She is carrying the banner for what I have been preaching, for years. We are poisoning our kids to make them SUBMIT. Submit to money that is progressively worthless. Submit to weak cowards who govern our lives from secret societies. Who just dont like cigarette smoke (so no one can smoke), who create insane rules of living so we will submit to insane rules.
Hell - by these standards Dr. Timothy Leary WAS INSANE! He's the one who said; "Think for yourself, question authority.. " That of course is the most anti-social statement ever made. Except perhaps these, by Jane Fendelman.
THIS is how we get heros. Somebody stands up and objects to being made to SUBMIT.
Gather 'round, children - we need to protect this lady. CLICK THE HEADLINE TO GO TO HER WEBSITE

NO MORE TEACHING TO TEST. NO MORE DRUGGING OUR CHILDREN TO MAKE THEM DO AN IMPOSSIBLE TASK. NO MORE PARENTS FEELING LIKE THEY HAVE TO FIGHT ALL NIGHT, EVERY NIGHT, TO GET THROUGH HOMEWORK. IT IS TIME FOR A REVOLUTION!>
As a counselor, over the last five or six years, I have been seeing an alarming trend...an epidemic...of grammar-school aged children (6, 7 and 8 years old) coming in deeply lonely and feeling "not good enough", with their self-esteem destroyed, Collapsing Syndrome (the inability to tolerate the slightest frustration) anxiety attacks, stunted growth, sleeping and eating disorders, ticks (from the meds), mood swings and Suicidal Ideation. As a teacher, counselor, mother and student, I know homework should not be given before 6th grade and I know children shouldn't be drugged.
All day, every day, I have parents coming into my office asking me how get their kids to do homework. The families miss eachother terribly. All they ever talk about is school, grades and homework. There is no family "love-time." Everyone is on the hamster wheel.
In Avondale, AZ we had a 4th grade girl commit suicide last month. A few weeks ago in Boston, a four and a half year old little girl died from a lethal combination of meds for ADHD and Bipolar "Disorders". We have 160 ADD/ADHD med-related deaths reported in the US and similar reports from the UK.
How many more children do we have to kill?
There were 31 million prescriptions written for ADHD in the last year alone. There is NOTHING wrong with your child! It is simply unrealistic and unfair to expect a child under the age of ten to be capable of spending an entire day in school and then come home and sit down to do homework at night.
It is a lose/lose situation. The children feel like a failure because they can't get through their homework after a whole day in school. The parents feel like a failure because they can't make the kids do their homework. Families are missing out on their "love time" because parents have to be the slave-driver every night.
NO MORE HOMEWORK BEFORE 6TH GRADE AND NO MORE DRUGGING OF CHILDREN AND MAKING THEM THINK THEY ARE DAMAGED GOODS!!!
Please forward this to everyone you think would benefit from it.
