8:35 am
it. you're here to help these kids. younger elementary students don't need pencil and paper work after they leave the classroom. i'm checking for math and reading here and i know what my kids know and what they can do. it wasn't right for them any more. >> psychologist lisa demorris is here and author of "untangled." and she is now a cbs news new contributor, we are happy to say. >> thank you for having me. >> this letter that was shared by a mother has now on facebook 70,000 times. this is striking a chord for a reason, isn't it? >> it is. i think a lot of families feel stressed about homework and especially when it's excessive. you have kids have a long day at school and to come home and feel like they have to tackle a pile of homework and for parents who come home from their long day and then have to lean on a child to get them to tackle a pile of homework, it's not so fun. >> you have research telling us kids need to get more rest which
8:36 am
where does the research stand on the value of homework? >> well, it's interesting. when we -- we have a lot of data over a long period of time. what we see is that up until seventh grade, more homework doesn't mean more achievement. after seventh grade, seventh to 12th, we see that more homework does contribute to more achievement to a point. that you get to diminishing returns. so for middle schoolers, after about 90 minutes a night, the benefit drops off and then for between an hour and a half to two hours a night, the benefit drops off. >> wow. should students or parents push back if they feel they are getting too homework? >> if the child can't manage the homework, i think for the younger grades, maybe the parent should reach out to the school. for the older grades, we would like to see the child take that initiative. in my experience, teachers want to help. you know, teachers don't know what goes on in our homes. i think if things are not going
8:37 am
reach out to the teacher, all teachers want to find a solution to that. >> a 2015 study showed the homework load for some young elementary students is almost three times what is recommended. so, i mean, you talked about that drop-off effect when you go over the limit. i mean, what is the effect on the kid when you go over the limit? >> well, we like to see about ten minutes per grade. so ten minutes first grade and 20 minutes in second grade and 30 minutes in third grade has roughly been the recommendation. seeing is that we are in an era of high stakes testing and teachers are under pressure which means students are under pressure but it does stress kids and families. >> one school in massachusetts decided to get rid of all homework. an underperforming school and extended their school day. what do you think of that? >> not a bad idea. i think probably a relief to those families. get it done in school and come home and be off the clock.

deadline and meet that homework project that is done. >> the best argument for the homework in the younger grades is the establishment of routines. that you come home, you sit down, get it done, carry on with your evening. i'll tell you, i get to watch kid go over the course of development and a long trajectory, i will take a child with excellent homework routines over a child with a very strong intellectual endowment any day. when you see success down the line, it's good habits. >> thank you. james corden is helping a new generation to find a new fan. ahead how stars like the late late show host are lining up to sing animated covers. we will explore the >> samantha: good wednesday to you. it's a nice start out there. we go partly to mostly sunday for this hump day.
