Depends what she has going on.   During a show she's gone from 7am to 8pm almost nightly and often on saturdays as well.  She's not doing a show this term until December so she comes home after school most days right away.  She'll spend a cpl hours hanging out with friends after she gets home and homework is done.  She's tutoring on Saturdays right now for about 3 hours.

Quite a bit.  I don't know really how to measure...   it depends on their schedules.

 My kids don't seem to go anywhere right now.  They are homebodies and most of their friends visit here.

this term my son leaves the house at 6:30am and gets home about 6:30pm.  Eats, homework, and bed.... so we see him at dinner.  The weekends vary.

Dd is away at college, so a lot of time.  Ds is a sophomore in hs, between marching band and football, scouts and clubs, he can be gone from 7 am to 6 pm on an early night to 9:30 pm.  Weekends with competitions and away games 11 pm.

Bus ride and school = 8 hours

If he has sports, it's another 2-3 hours.

He's too young to have a traditional job.

 My oldest is home alot. He's been struggeling with some school work so keeping him on track and bringing up his grades,  he really can't afford to join a sport even if he wanted to. My 10 & 8 yr old have more activities during the week and weekend.
