Speaking

Nowadays the student under grade 3 still study at home, they cannot go back to school yet. The government told us that students who are under grade 3, they should stay at home, study at home and finishing homework at home. Although I am still at home during this period, he still forget to do things. If the students study at home and the teachers send them a lot of paper, you need to help them print a lot of papers. Some parents think much more homework means the school’s education or the teachers are good. But, for me I think it’s not always true. Sometimes Joey asks me, “How do I do this?” He would find either my husband or me to help him with his homework.
