i don't give her a time limit. But, i check on her often & if she seems to be stalling, I'll encourage her along. I always let her do something fun after. Lately, she's been really into watching avatar, the last airbender series. So, i keep telling her "the sooner homework is done, the sooner you can watch avatar" This will help push her along too. I'm always close by where i can keep an eye on her in case she starts daydreaming. Sometimes, taking a shower after school..or doing something fun before homework helps too. She has a harder time if she does her homework RIGHT after school. She definitely needs to unwind a bit to get her head back on straight. Lots of patience & positive encouragement works wonders for my DD.
