Not long ago, I was chatting with my friend after school one day. We were talking about our kids and how tired they are after school… we started talking about the hours of homework that our kids had (my fifth grader & her fourth grader). Then she said that her son, the fourth grader, would come home grumpy every day. He was rude and just not himself, but it was only after school. She asked me if this had ever happened with our kids… and I said YES.
