Well, the way I handled it was to refuse to do it. I have the kids do 30-40 minutes maximum a night (they are going into 3rd and 4th grade) and whatever doesn't get done doesn't get done. I told the teacher that I will not have them do more than that a night and that I think it is excessive. So far no one has argued with me. As long as I know they are working their hardest during that 30 minutes then I think that is more than enough homework. They are already at school for 6.5 hours a day.
