    The kid has no rest

    The mother gave her daughter homework everyday. The kid has no rest and starts bored with it.

    Can I say "has no rest" in sentence above?

    Re: The kid has no rest

    Because the first part is in the past tense, the second part would be more natural in the past tense. "The kid had no rest and started to be bored with it."
