Mum left outraged after four-year-old daughters teachers give parents homework

A mum-of-two has been left outraged after her daughter's teachers set some homework for the parents.

Carolyn Tate said her four-year-old child returned home with an assignment for the week, as well as something for her.

She claimed the teachers had gone "too far" with the homework for mums and dads which caused her extra unnecessary stress.

The mum told how her daughter's homework was to write her own chapter of a Roald Dahl book.

Writing on the parenting blog on Honey, she said: "I think that sounds like a really fun project.

"I was eager to read my daughter's chapter."

But as she read through in more detail, Carolyn noticed she had to check the chapter to identify nouns and adverbs.

The mum assumed the task would be something for her daughter.

She said: "Is she going to come to my house and cook dinner, perhaps run my kids to their afternoon sports, while I'm doing her job?"

Carolyn raged that she's the kind of parent who doesn't even read the weekly email from teachers.

And the mum argued she was busy enough without having to worry about doing homework too.

She also raged the assignment could embarrass parents who don't know much about grammar and won't be able to complete it.

In the end, the mum carried out the ask.

She said: "My honest feedback is that doing that homework added extra stress and pressure to my already busy week…

"And I don't think I'm the only one."
