My 4th grader usually takes about 20 minutes give or take depending on the subject.
My preschooler just has to practice his letters and he usually only takes about 5-10 minutes. We don't push and he really likes doing them at this point.
My daughter is in 4th grade. She always has math homework, takes 15-20 minutes and then 30 minutes of reading. She does most of it on her own, sometimes I have to explain something in the math.
My son is in 2nd grade. His homework varies, takes about 10 minutes and then 15 minutes of reading which is like pulling teeth. I have to stand over him the whole time.
about 20 minutes to an hour. She is in 1st grade. How long it takes depends on her willingness to do it. Once she puts her mind to a task it is done in about 10 minutes.
9th grader does it on her own and 1st grader has homework maybe every day but just one or two things.
kinder, so about 10 minutes MAX every night but Friday
My rule of thumb as a teacher was no more than 15 minutes per grade level per night (i.e. first graders 15 minutes, 2nd grader no more than 30). Although I think every kid should read every day. The point of the homework is for a kid to practice independently, so if they aren't going to do it on their own, why have it? Though I do understand the need for parents to go through the directions or answer a question, etc, the parent should NOT be the one doing the homework.
High school can get crazy. I remember when I was in high school it seemed like I had an hour of homework in every subject every night (or at least they would all be on the same night)!
About 20 minutes.
4th grade, stays for the homework afterschool program, so not much homework ever comes home.
