    Right. But then again I had a History teacher who’d give one section plus the questions from the book for homework each day and then spend all of the next lesson going over the answers. Every Friday we’d finish a chapter with a computerized MC-test. It was the most mind-numbing class ever and she never had to prepare, teach or mark a thing.

    Good for you, Elly! That’s the way to raise self-confident, autonomous kids! I was home by myself after school ever since first grade, both my parents working till 5 or 6 p.m. I’d also take the tram to go to dance class when I was 7. When my brother entered kindergarten, I’d occasionally pick him up there and then cook something for the both of us. I was 10 then.

    Well maybe if we paid our teachers a little better they could be better teachers instead of having to earn money teaching private lessons or during vacations. It’s the same world-over with few exceptions.

    I never got the sense of the amount of homework they assign in North America. I used to get 20 to 25 problems in Math per day and they were all exactly the same except for different numbers! What’s the sense in that?
    I am a teacher in 6th and 8th grade and I never give homework unless there’s a longer period without class (excursions, holidays…) with an exam coming up, or they really behaved horrendously and that’s why we didn’t finish. If we don’t finish the work in class it’s usually because I didn’t get my plan right or they encountered problems I didn’t foresee. My students go to school 7.40 a.m. to 4 p.m. and after that they have sports, private lessons and what else. They don’t need to be punished with homework on the side.

    Exactly!

    From my own experience I’d say start in Rome, give it three days, then move on to Tuscany and these places. You’d have to be from a really big city in order to be able to stand Rome for much longer than a couple of days. Less in the summer.

    Why did they let him bring it? It’d be enough for his parents to bring theirs just in case.

    That’s right, and mine never makes me. But I do like to watch a good soccer game, and if it’s not his team he can do whatever he likes meanwhile. To each his own…

    Husbands should never have to go clothes shopping. That’s what girlfriends and mothers are for. But they ARE expected to comment positively when you come home with the loot :-)

    Yeah, I tried that, too. Somehow it never really worked for me. Maybe the ball was just to big for my desk.
