I think if I'd gotten all my work done in class, and then I'd come home and my mom punished me for it by giving me extra work, she'd have had a seriously rebellious kid on her hands. And I was not rebellious at all. If he's doing a good job taking care of his work efficiently at school, then he's earned his free time.
