My hubby is given homework by his neuropsychologist and in many ways it's a good thing. Some things seem too advanced for him (doesn't have the tools to deal with it or doesn't see how it relates to him) and I have bought other books on my own that were recommended as forerunners. It is something he needs to do. However, when the psych sort've loosely suggested that we both could read the last book recommended I made it clear that I would only glance at it out of curiosity. I'm not the patient. It seemed rather insulting especially in the context of discussion that had been going on.
For me, sometimes books, forms, etc. really are meaningless. That meaninglessness just adds to the frustration.

> My desire at the moment is to fill it out in such a way that leaves him in no doubt of how angry I am at such puerile assignments. But my fondness for him will likely lead me to do it properly, if in ill grace.
