Kids are losing their free time with recesses getting shorter and workloads at school getting bigger and bigger. But is this really good for our children? According to this mom, it certainly isn’t.

The mother of three emailed her daughter’s school to inform them that her daughter will no longer be doing her homework.
She also wrote a Facebook post after the email, and it went viral.
