Problems or challenges or troubles are an inevitable part of life. From the moment you are born till the day you die, you are bound to face on thing or the other. However, problems make you strong and drive you to do better.
One major concern in the life of a student whether he is in school or in college is Homework/assignment. Homework is necessary yet one of the most time taking tasks.

Till the authorities come to a final conclusion, students will have to keep doing their homework.
This brings us to the main question, what are the problems that students face which makes them hate their homework.
There are guidelines laid by authorities on the amount of homework assigned to students of different grades. This includes 15-20minutes of homework for kindergarten children which moves to 30 minutes in third grade, 45minutes in sixth up to an hour when the student reaches high school.
If your child is having homework more than the scheduled timings, contact the school authorities. It is best when parents and teachers sit face to face in order to address this problem.
Students find themselves in deep trouble when there is not enough information on a particular topic mentioned in the textbooks.
In such cases, it is best to begin homework as early as possible. If you face this trouble, then visit the school/university library. There are so many books that you are bound to find plenty of information concerned to your topic. If there is too much to jot down, you can use the photocopy machine. If your school doesnâ€™t have a library, make use of the public library.
You can also use the internet to get all information in one place. In fact there are plenty websites offering information based on which grade you study in.
This depends what kind of distraction you are having.
There could be personal reasons as well as well as other factors why the student is facing trouble.

Plus, you are unable to devote time for other tasks like baseball/piano practice or household chores etc. You may end up feeling frustrated and even reprimanded for not completing the chores.
Make a time table allotting time for each of the tasks including homework.

Ups and Downs are the way of life. Instead of facing problems quietly, it is better to think out proper solutions in order to avoid the problem altogether or at least lessen its impact.
