The available report shows that a substantial number of students fail to submit homework on time while others don’t do it at all. The trend happening all over the world has become a cause for worry for both teachers and parents alike. They seem lost in the situation and are trying to find out why this is happening but with no concrete answers.
But relying on the findings of various research about homework, some students are naturally unwilling to do any academic work after school hours. Another significant factor contributing to this is what is known as homework stress.
Most students complain of stress and other related health condition resulting from long hours of study and having to do homework. With the rising level of cases, it is worth discussing, and that is the purpose of this article. We will go through some causes of homework stress and ways to manage it.

On an average day, every subject teacher would want to test students’ understanding of a topic taught in class. Meaning if there are four lessons daily students will end up having four assignments to do. Most of these assignments come with the same submission date. This puts them into stress having to switch their mind from one subject to the other within a short period.
Some students are unable to set rules and periods for their daily activities. But can we blame them as many adults also lack that skill? With a lack of proper time management, students try to multi-task, switching the brain from one activity to the other. The situation becomes worse when they have homework to submit.
