From the Paper:

"If teachers are not careful when assigning homework the effects can become detrimental to both students' learning and their attitudes towards education. Some of the main arguments against homework are as follows: Students don't get enough sleep; they are tired the next day of school, becoming stressed and anxious about their education (Caston & Penrose, 2003). Secondly, homework limits the time that students can spend with their family and friends, and the time parents do spend doing homework with their children can result in tension and fights. Asking children to sit down and do homework at an early age may be developmentally inappropriate and therefore counterproductive."
