Little Maya is a perfectly happy 10 year old girl who lives in Canada with her Mom. She loves learning, reading and going to school, however, she'd been coming home from school stressed about her workload and the amount of homework she had to complete on a nightly basis. Maya's Mom finally had enough and wrote a letter to her teachers and the school!
Here's some of what she had to say:
"Maya will be drastically reducing the amount of homework she does this year. She's been very stressed and is starting to have physical symptoms such as chest pain and waking up at 4:00 A.M. worrying about her workload.
"She's not behind academically and very much enjoys school. We've consulted with a tutor and a therapist [whom] suggested we lighten her workload. Doing 2-3 hours of homework after getting home at 4:30 is leaving little time for her to just be a child and enjoy family time and we'd like to avoid her sinking into a depression over this."
