There is an article making the rounds in social media suggesting that homework is actually having a detrimental affect on our children. The debate regarding homework has raged for years. Researchers such as Alfie Kohn encourage us to Rethink Homework. Personally, I like the work that Robert Marzano has done on effective homework practices:

Homework does not need to be boring or painful
But What About Family Time?
How Much Should Homework Count?
