No Homework- A guest post by Bubby

This piece was originally written by Bubby, my 11 year old autistic son for a school creative writing essay.  He worked really hard on this.  I know creative writing is very difficult for him, but I thought he did an excellent job with this one, so I wanted to feature it here on my blog.  

For more information about creative writing and why it's hard for some people on the autism spectrum visit this awesome article shared with me by Leah at 30 Days Of Autism.

         No Homework                    

Wouldn't it be fun if we had no homework?  I think all kids would agree. Would you like no homework?

We get more time to play at home.  The games we like, instead of homework.  The next reason is we work hard all day, so I need a break.  Finally, homework gets people upset, and people don't like to cry.

I hope teachers would stop giving students homework. We would be much happier!  


  1. I like the way Bubby thinks. I have always thought homework was illogical. Schoolwork does not belong at home.

    1. I agree! I wish the teachers would agree, as well!

  2. Great writing Bubby!
    I'm a teacher and I completely agree!

    1. Yay! You're one of those special teachers that get it!

  3. I agree with Bubby! I was not a fan of homework when I was in school. It made me so frustrated.

    He did a great job!

    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet
    explorer. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd
    post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Cheers

    #1, I think that Bubby's done a great job on his essay - congratulations to him! (And two of my siblings had a *very* good teacher who believed exactly that.)

    #2, having read through the article you linked to, I think we have a different definition of "creative writing". *wry grin* I tend to think of it as writing fiction - stories for entertainment and enjoyment. (Being a writer with aspirations of "novelist" getting closer....) What the article describes sounds to me as what I would call "essay writing" - which I hated with a *passion* through school because I could *never* do it! Thank you very much for the link; it puts into words at least some of the issues that I've had with essays.

    1. Glad you found it helpful. I love, love, love all sorts of writing, but my son... not so much. Like many on the spectrum his feelings about writing are less than positive.

    1. Me too! He just got out of school for the summer, and brought home a book of stories he wrote. I will be sharing some of them, so check back for more soon!
