When should homework be done?

I make my kids do all their homework before they go play outside or watch t.v. Becouse if I let them wait until after dinner they forget to do it most of the time.. plus our evening are so busy already.

  • Immediately after school, no tv, no games, no outside play...NOTHING until homework is done and back in the backpack/folder.

  • right after school. end of discussion. :) it teaches them to work hard so they can play hard.

  • First thing before they play or watch tv.

    In my house they have snack then do homework. It works for us.

  • as soon as they get home from school. that way when they are done they have their chores and then dinner and then watch some tv and off to bed. at least that is how i use to do it when they were little. not so little anymore.

  • As soon as they get home...my oldest has a few things, my middle can do it either when he gets home or the next day bc he;s in kindergarten and goes in the afternoon. He normally does it in the afternoon when he gets home too.

  • We do it after dinner but you need to do what works for you. The most important thing is establishing consistency

  • We usually help the kids with their homework while supper is cooking.

  • I think homework should be done while it is still on the child mind. My children do home work when they get home.
