A mother-of-three has sparked a debate on social media after revealing that she does her children’s homework because she doesn’t want them to get stressed.
Lottie took to TikTok and admitted to doing her daughter’s homework especially when they are exhausted from after-school activities.
But people were left divided, with many accusing her of breeding lazy children while others described her as ‘genius.’
“I know every parent helps, but I will just do the homework. I’m not going to have them stress over maths problems they don’t have time to do,” she said.
The mother also pointed out the difficulty levels of some homework, saying: “Some of these projects these teachers give… I mean, the kids are seven years old.”
But Lottie emphasized her goal to nurture strength and honesty in her kids. “I try not to baby them when they fall, I want to raise them to be strong. My biggest goal in life is to have an honest relationship with my kids.”
Many parents agreed with Lottie and said they would do the same, with one saying: “This is such amazing parenting I aspire to be like this when I’m a mom!”
But others were concerned about the long-term implications of her tactics.
One parent commented: “Doing your child’s work for them won’t help them in the long run unless you want them to grow up to be entitled and lazy.”
Some were quick to share their thoughts about homework, with one saying: “My house will be a homework-free zone. Kids are in school all day and then are expected to go home and do more school work, no! Reading is acceptable, but that is it.”
