Toilet Paper Time
One day I was 1 or 2 and bored, bored, bored! I didn’t want to take a nap. I didn’t want to play with dolls, and I didn’t want to play with my brother and sister. I had nothing to do! Then when I thought all is lost, I heard a noise. A noise I don’t always hear. It sounded like someone was flushing a toilet! Then I knew I wouldn’t be bored for long. When the flushing sound was over, I tried to remember where the sound was coming from. Now you might be like, “How do you not know where the bathroom is?” But just remember I was 1 or 2 years old. I, as quickly as I could, went to the bathroom. I guess you could say I had a funny light bulb moment. I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to pull a prank. Now I thought I could blow the flushing sound in someone’s ear, but I didn’t know how. I saw the toilet paper and I crawled as quickly as I could, making sure my parents couldn’t see me. Into the study, past my sister and into the kitchen. When my parents caught me they just lafed. I then tried it again when I was five, but it didn’t work!

No Homework for Kids
Do we really need homework? Is it that good for you? The answer is no! In my opinion, we should not have homework.
My first reason is it is more work. For example, kids are working all day and they need a break.
Another reason is research can even prove it. For example, a 2012 study found there’s no relationship between homework and good grades.
Lastly, it can be confusing. For example, parents can’t help their kids. It causes stress and arguments.
As you can see, we should not have homework!
