lol my parents used to when I was in middle school and a total procrastinator. How unreasonable your mother is being really depends on what you have for homework. If you must complete a few worksheets than I think she could let you wait a little while before starting. If you must finish a project or five page essay however than I really would get started asap. Besides, having your homework out of the way will make it much easier to relax and enjoy your break as you won't have an unfinished assignment hanging over your head.

Camryn Originally Answered: Is it better to start school early? or later for high schoolers?
Most high schools begin their day around 7:30 a.m., which leaves many teenagers nodding off in the morning. In fact, at least 20 percent of high school students fall asleep in class on a typical day. The problem: Teenagers need a lot of sleep — about nine hours each night, experts say. And most of them aren't getting enough. To help sleepy teens, some school districts have tried delaying the opening of the high school day. Educational researcher Kyla Wahlstrom, from the University of Minnesota, has been following districts that changed their start times, tracking the effect on schools and students. The Minneapolis school district, for example, changed its start time from 7:20 to 8:40 a.m., giving its 12,000 high schoolers an extra hour and twenty minutes each morning. Wahlstrom says the students have benefited from the change. "Students reported less depression when there was a later starting time," she says. "And teachers reported that students were more alert and ready for learning. Parents reported that their children were easier to live with because their emotions were more regulated." Additionally, Wahlstrom found a decrease in the number of students who were dropping out of school or moving from school to school. According to the National Sleep Foundation, more than 80 school districts around the country have now made the change to start their high schools later. These districts range from large, urban school districts, such as Minneapolis and Denver, to suburban districts, such as Jessamine County in central Kentucky. In Jessamine County, detailed discussions about starting their high schools later took place over a year and a half. All the stakeholders — parents, teachers, coaches, kids, transportation directors — were included in the conversation. Eventually, a plan emerged: The district decided to flip the elementary school start time with the high school start time. Research shows that young children aren't sleepy in the early morning, unlike the typical teenager. "We found that our students were more on time and in better attendance first period than they had been in the past," she says.

Here the elementary kids start first, but only by 5 minutes. I would support a late start for high schools anywhere (the research has been going on for a long time and continues to support later start and finish times for high schoolers. No high schooler NEEDS to work (at that age work is a want, not a need) and an hour's difference in sports is no biggie, they already practice in the dark in winter as it is. Learning to get up early because that's what they will do in life is BS too. In college most students choose classes that start late, and many jobs have shifts. My own job starts at 10 am and I often work until 9 p.m. or later, with a long break between. If they kids learn better if they wake up/start school later I'm all for it. They can learn to wake up early when they get out of college and their bodies are better suited to early mornings. Here the problem is transportation. We're in a small district, they run the buses once for all the schools. Elementary, middle and high school students ride together. The elementary starts at 8:05, the high school at 8:10 and the middle school at 8:15, only because that's the most logical route for kid delivery (three schools on one square block, they just go in a circle. If they were to put the high school on a later schedule they'd have to run a second route, which the district can't afford. Oh, also, if I was in a district that started school at 6 am, as a parent I would either move or homeschool my kids. That is ridiculous! That means getting up at 4 or 5 am, and to get 8 hours of sleep (teenagers usually need 10) means going to bed at 8 p.m. which is impossible because many sports and other school events start at 7 p.m. At 8 p.m. I'm often just getting home and starting dinner for the family!

If you get it done now, then you can have fun on the rest of your winter break and won't have to worry about it on the very last day like your friends will =] Trust me get it done now then you don't have to worry about it. You will thank your mom

Fortunately, that's quite normal for a mother (or any parent). There are some things you just won't get until you're in we shoes (just wait until you have kids).

Wainamoinen Originally Answered: Is it too early to make my son wear a helmet?
ABSOLUTELY! I actually got Avary a helmet last Fall that was fitted to her head by a pro. At the time we were at one of those "old school" kind of a kids fairs (you know, where they have kids search for toys and stickers in a haystack and toss beanbags through holes in a wall, pony rides, etc. instead of expensive rides and $5/try extravagant games). Anyway, the fair also had a strong focus on child safety. They had a place to get the child ID kits made (in case of kidnapping, etc.), tours of emergency vehicles, and the best part (IMO) was a booth sponsored by our local PD where they had tables filled with biking and snow/skateboard helmets for all aged children and adults - and each was only $10! It was a great idea. They had an expert on hand to make sure the helmets were the right size and to fit them correctly to the child's head. The expert guy told me that the helmet I got for Avary should be able to fit her through age 4 but I will need to adjust the straps and pads as she grows to keep the fit just right. The difference between a good fitting helmet and a bad fit can be very dramatic. I would suggest you 1st check if you have any local kids fairs or safety events coming up where they may have one of these booths. If not, I'd suggest taking a trip to a bike shop. The people that work at those shops are generally bikers themselves and have a lot of knowledge of all things bike-related (for instance, fitting a helmet to a toddler's head). A good bike shop will be very fair as well. I swear bikers in general, are the most laid-back, helpful group of enthusiasts. Be honest and tell them exactly what the helmet will be used for and how often. There are different styles of helmets for bike riding and skiing/skating or cross-use. Ask what they suggest and don't be afraid to ask if they think there is a less expensive route to go. Honestly, you are going to pay through the nose if you buy it at a bike shop. So the best thing to do is find a place that will give you the information you need - like what size, what brand/style is best, etc and ask them if you can bring it back to the shop after you purchase it at Toys-R-Us or Target (wherever) so they can assist you with a good fit. Ask when is their slowest time of day and try your best to go then, since they will probably just be sitting around anyway. A good bike shop will be happy to help you. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to show interest in possibly purchasing a bike trailer or child's seat for on your own bike while you are there; or even talk about which types of bikes they sell that would be good for your little guy when he is ready. If they see you as a potential future customer, they will be much happier to take the time to assist you. Like I said before, the fit is the most important thing on a helmet. Even if you purchase the right size, if the straps and internal pads aren't adjusted correctly, your son can still get injured. Sometimes local police or fire stations also have a person designated to assist with bike helmet fittings - usually the same person who helps with car seat installation. http://www.prorider.com/org/p230/Child-B... It looks like this company sells super inexpensive helmets to local safety groups (schools, police, etc.) for distribution but it's probably a good place to start. I just started a playgroup and I may look into placing an order for All the parent's in the group that are interested. They sell helmets for toddlers aged 1-3 or aged 3-6 for $5.95! This is where a pro will come in handy. Depending on your son's head size, you may be better off buying him a helmet for age 3-6 with good adjustable straps and extra padding stickers inside to fit better longer - or vice versa. You may even be able to call this site's 1-800 # and ask if they know of any places in your area that are hosting safety fairs and selling inexpensive helmets. Just an idea. Anyway, good luck. I'm attaching a bunch of links that look useful (will be useful to me too)! :>) Cheers!
