Does your child do homework right after he/she gets home from school or do they rest a little bit before starting homework?

My son does his homework right after school so it can be done for the night

30 min for snack and rest. Then homework. We have alot of evenings we do something. So it has to be done. And bedtime is 7:30 or 8. My kids need 11 to 12 sleep a night or they do not function.

Yes I have my daughter do her homework when she gets home. Then the rest of the day she has free time to do what she wants.

It depends on his mood. He just needs to have it done by bedtime.

Same. We would encourage the boys to finish after they got home, but some days they would ask if they could do it later instead which is fine as long as it gets done.

Quoting Barabell:

It depends on his mood. He just needs to have it done by bedtime.

As soon as they come in the door they are to hit the bathroom, and then do any homework or practice spelling words. They actually like it that way.

I let them rest and play a little bit, we usually do homework after dinner before baths and bed.

Homework for 30 mins right after school and she can have her snack,tgen too.

Last year it was after dinner and that was a nightmare.

First full week of school and so far so much better.
