WORK IS BETTER THAN ALCOHOLISM.

The Last Psychiatrist elaborates.
At some point during the Truman Administration home life became more stressful than work life, where stressful is defined either as hysterical drama or rheumatismy boredom, and by Reagan II the home was no longer a respite from modern society's incessant demands to produce or at the very least a place to get a nap.  Home became work, it became a work, and not coincidentally this parallels precisely the history of homework.
It's a long article (via Voluntary Xchange.)

Let me suggest a simple therapy. Save those wooden stir-sticks from the coffee shop, until you have enough to build some circus wagons.
