  • Well my daughter is only 3.5....but when she has homework it will be done before dinner, all the way through elementary her bedtime would probably be no later than 8 on a school night unless something important was on.

  • We do homework before dinner. Home from school at 2, home work at 4-4:30ish. Dinner around 5-30-6ish, bedtime at 8.... DD is just turned 7 and in first grade. Works good so far.

  • Homework is so much more than it use to be.

  • They do homework as soon as they walk in the door if they have it. They get home at 4pm, homework right away then chores and then they can go outside to play or watch TV, dinner is at 5pm, they have to come in at 7pm to do their reading and bedtime is 8pm.
    They are 10, 9, 8 and 5 (the youngest isn't in school yet).

  • I only have one child. He does his homework at 4 pm after about an hour break. It is the time we agreed upon, he likes to have a snack and unwind. I do not remind him of the time, it I had to do this, we would change the situation. He goes to bed at 7:45 pm when he doesn't have Little League or Scouts. then it is usually about 8 pm by the time we get home late and he showers.

    When I was young, I had a sister who was about 2 yrs younger than me. We never had a hard time wanting to stay up. We got tired at night, and we went to bed when we got tired, until high school it was around 9 pm. Of course, we didn't go to school as early in the morning as my son does.

    We did our homework immediately after school, that was my mom's rule. We could eat a snack while we did it but no TV or anything until homework was done. In high school, we did it when we wanted as long as our grades stayed up.
