SS visits BM (NCP) for about 11 weeks throughout the year, broken up in three 3-4 week visits. Since SS is homeschooled (dad's decision when he had sole legal custody) the CO says that BM has to help with his schoolwork. To make it easy on BM she was only asked to do 1 hour of schoolwork (worksheets) with SS per day plus 20 minutes of independent reading daily. All the worksheets were a review and no new concepts had to be taught. Well, the problem is that SS only did schoolwork for 2 weeks (out of 4 weeks), and only read one book during the whole time.
Now I'm wondering if DH can do anything to make sure that the schoolwork is done at BM's house, since otherwise the catching-up has to be done when SS comes back from his visit, and does not allow us to take any time off from school. We even had to do schoolwork 6 days a week (or double work on some days) just to get done what had not been done by BM.
