Who invented homework?

Hi All,
Sharpen the pencils,keep an eraser and a spare pencil handy and get all set to get your kid do homework.Sounds familiar?Welcome to the world of homework!
It takes a whole full day for me to make Kavin ready to do homework.His teacher gives one page of cursive alphabet to be written.He keeps on saying-"Jab Appa aayenge tab." In other words he just wants to delay it as much as possible.And when Appa comes,he makes Kavin sit with him and write. And after each alphabet Kavin wants to drink water,wants to eat apple,wants to check what I'm preparing for dinner,wants to do Shoo-Shoo,wants to get a better pencil,a better eraser and so on.

So temperature is always high at our home in the evening time(of course my cooking adds a few degrees to it) and patience runs low.

I would really like to meet the person who invented the concept of homework and I would want him to sit with Kavin just for a day while doing the homework.I'm sure in his next incarnation he won't even dare to think about re-inventing it......

Ha ha ha! Home-work man probably never had kids of his own.
Observer how conveniently we call the inverter a 'him' *wink wink*

Yeah.It couldn't have been "her" because only men can think about such stupid ideas.
