A lot of people Joe's not pumped up this year for actually it's a lot of people. No matter what thinks that we are not dwell and think that we're not going to have a very good season. I'm getting a little more encouraged a lot of times when you. Stink in the pre season he played better in the regular season that's that's a that's that's my falafel restaurant hoping for. Do you believe in life. In other planets. Scientists have discovered the star closest to earth outside our solutions and has a plan of that of potentially support line we'll talk about that and but about your kids. How much homework to your kids hand each day according to the American journal family therapy. The amount of homework for some young elementary elementary school students is almost three times. The rector mended level. And we have a special guests this half hours doctor Jamie Dixon LSU health too early and clinical psychologist. Doctor thank you for being part of the show today. My pleasure. Is that doable shall work for two. The public varies from school to school public hearing a lot of complaints from parents. Some schools seem to be getting it right and some schools seem not to have. That research in the literature on the. How much homework. On an average you think kids should have what I'll looked going over the top. Well you know we have. Actor Harry Cooper who with Duke University. I reviewed lack in lack of studies on and you had not around that there's any lien. Between. It being that the homework and being able to increase at court particularly in elementary school. So what we really should be seen parts hit an elementary school is. How and then it or black and I ate her rainy. That they change he has been little bit of homework to move polity with Hitler and during the day and left the court you have a child to bury our team in need a lot of help with between your going to ever be mapped back. They get would be all of her they have found that between. The ninth grade about nineteen minute and I eat it helpful for Dan. And once you've got to look out that there has scored actually go to. Do you think kids today have more or less home more than their parents had when they were in school. Like it we all know that they have more fair. I'm averaged and I think a lot of parent. Are alarmed by that. You know they average high school should have about two hours and yet homework at night and we know that at more than act. I don't remember who grew up having any more than may be an hour and a especially in high school and I don't know kids still have a study periods of these days. But I was able do a lot of my homework it can must not entered their fourth had very little to do I came home. You know you're school had it right we should be having study period during the day they should have accepted the teachers that they need help. They should be able to get working on an anti CD it all that we eat huge backpack and back problems. But they're carrying things alone many schools have gone online textbook. That they don't have to carry it home where they won't be limited if they forgot attacks but. You really should be happy chat a little bit to consolidate learning. And not trying to do the bulk of teaching in the heat means we expect and she and extra hole. With all day that the social networks that kids get in flaw with. What is affected the whole network or the social media time I can't imagine kids say and well I'm gonna give up a social media time to do my homework. No and you know appeared Q which is another discussion and parent may need to review the phone. And say you know you look at objector Q and then you can happen time with your friends and then they take the phone again because they taped it. So distracted looking at every. Boleyn in pain and you know their timing and it's one thing at their work and on study group together and they're doing about an automatic social time. They need to now be able to work they need to happen social. We didn't have all of that we didn't have the can meet with games on all on the computers and and baseball and and and texting back and forth. We know will TV may be able radio but other than that in when your moms and go to your room and do your school work there was there was no other distractions. Yes but now I did find something really neat when I was a putting this together I've found a teacher and taxes and this thing is is gone totally viral her name is brandy young. She is a second grade teacher and I think you're gonna love it cares what she passed out every parent of her students. To your parents. After much research this summer I'm trying something new homework will only consist of war the true student did not finish during the school day. There will be no formally assign homework this year. Re church has been an able approve the homework improve student performance. Rather I ask you spend your evening doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eat dinner as a planned read together. Play outside and get your child to bed early is that good. Have my. Secret to us. And she. Play it another way whether they. It died in outdoor and they need to be with their friend and they need to use their imagination. That is a wonderful thing achieved and now I bet she's good to see improvement in Turkey. Isn't that great to encourage the manly to eat dinner together who does that anymore wow. Yeah she's on the right track that was the good thing. I'm so happy you like that. Well not when it comes to the school work though the amount of school worked at a gotcha moment I'd read a little resurgence of that. Sometimes the teachers are doing is because there's so much pressure put on them that their kids in Belgrade so high and and in the national test of scores is that right. Therein but there again they're not reading the research. That we knew pour on all the homework he came here exhausted. They're not getting it done. They're gained op too late in. Boost their test scores. And it needs that the year at teaching to detach and no child left the Ernie and I'm good be fired at the teacher miked aren't scoring high enough with that kind of now. Can't beat that lately anxiety provoking but the kid in the teachers. I'll have a daughter who was a school teacher and the pressure. Put on them to make sure the of these kids get passed on to the next grade and these kids do well that and on the test scores of really. I I I I think there's more pressure put on them to do that than it is to teach the kids are properly. Yep I agree with you and some schools many schools are pulling away from the act. And they're taken at different and I applaud them and other schools feel like it here and I hope we come you know better solutions for about. One low left Russia as a parent if you think your kid is getting too much homework. Can you do anything about it those going to the teachers isn't gonna change anything. You know I had my child and a wonderful teacher last year you said on here and night. We can't minimal amount of homework but if your child at 18 am. 1520. Minute. To view a temple where she stopped. Let it now continent Allah will figure out what's going on. Some time I don't pay teachers realize how long their homework in taking predicts it. That there are many teachers out there who view one here for you in Europe it too much and you guys can figure out better plans. Maybe they can do it at lunchtime with the teacher or in this study hall. Or they don't downgrade how much they're expecting them at every kid has different abilities to concentrate and different aptitude. Doctor Dixon thank you for being part of a Schoen and justification. You wanna look this lady up ball on line her name is brandy young she's a second grade teacher in taxes.

We're also going to give you some been a little bit lighter to talk about today do you believe in life on other planets or do you believe. That we are the only intelligent life in the entire universe. Scientists have discovered a star. That's closest to earth outside of our solar system has a planet that could potentially. Support life.

Teaches second grade she's trying something new with homework. She only gives the students were they did not finish during that school day. Motivating parents to spend time. With her kids like eat dinners of family read together play outside. That your child to bed early. Does that sound like. A very there he he.

Or do you believe that we are the only intelligent life in the entire. You have yours do you believe that there is life out there. But right now there are probably. Far superior to us. And it is waiting for us the touch with them but the portly conflict us. And if you wanted to if if you could picture in your mind anyway you want is for us what life would be and other planets now. Which TV show or movie. Wouldn't reply. I would like to think that eventually on to a big start for me and start of so many different worlds and Lotto world of humanoid although world them all common in all different types.

To get troop positive policies and 260187. And I'm Bob Mitchell. And first boot in the afternoon do you believe in life on other planets and if there is life be that you should be more. Or less intelligent than we are if you had two a day a TV show or a space movie. What do you think it'll be like we'll be like in Star Trek where.

He struck out roll our way into the war. Eagle or are in the news now. And when you're one of which one. Or the life out there so it. It leaders. Zone is pretentious. But human that we were the only one in this universe. Well if you had a model. What's going to be in space from a TV show or movie. What would you choose. All well you don't that you go war based on. Our. Well he usually the second called seat belt and and should be. Tire war group I have that outlook definitely and I think horses are there explore the act to Alter. Very what I like would be another plan. I don't I think if we ever get out that far. I I think there are intelligent. Beans are their right now. Who know we exist but they are waiting for us to get a little a little bit more ahead. Or larger. I. If there watching if there watching this presidential ways I don't know if I've ever seen anything as deplorable. As what's going on between these two candidates the forget about the issues such as who can who can smear Hu and I heard Don Dubuque make a prediction. He said you can balked at that Hillary is going to be. Your next president. And but odd Clinton not. I hurt easily and he like you life. Let us say that aren't as pretty what country this war. The best leader. Here who won a man urged Iraq to 11 of those people but a on it back. States and all presumptuous for you to think that.

Or less intelligent life and we are here to text message on that. Sure hope this. I sure hope there is intelligent life on that because there's not much down here. Let's say I did have another one pretty much along that the that same line about in an intelligent life. I know there is life elsewhere in the universe because they told me but I also told the to not to vote for Hillary I was thinking about every everything is going on and on. Where you are going to be talking about the saints sports are really don't wanna get in the politics but. And O'Donnell trump called Hillary lie in Hillary. Other call tough loss.
