Can you give me a restatement of a thesis to get an idea of how to create it?

THESIS: Teachers should lessen the amount of homework they give a student because of the effects such as lack of sleep, large amounts of stress, and children becoming lazier. This is a persuasive essay.

Given the fact that this is going to be a persuasive essay, one would, essentially, shorten the provided thesis statement to better define it. To create a thesis, you need to focus the essay in a matter-of-fact way. This provides the reader with the understanding that you are stating something as it is. If a thesis is weak, the reader will not support your views as easily.

Therefore, to restate the thesis provided, one may try one of the following examples:

1. Given that extensive homework assignments add to the sleep deprivation and stress noted by students, teacher should lessen the amount of homework assigned.

2. Children tend to become lazier regarding homework based upon the fact that large amounts of homework tend to make students lose sleep and feel stressed.

3. The large amounts of homework given to students force them to become complacent (another word for lazy), feel stressed out, and lose sleep.
