like about 10 or 20 min after they come home cuz they just came home from all that work at school they cant just come home right from school n get right back to work that is stressful when I was a kid so I know it is on them

I would love for my kids to do homework right after school but I'm in school them when I get home it's hard to get them focus because now we are racing against the clock so they get to bed at the latest 9:30pm. Don't know what to do Husband no help.

I have four children. My oldest (5th grader) does his homework right after school. If he has more than an hour I have to kick him out of the house to relax his brain. My second child (third grader) is not quite as motivated to do homework. Sometimes I make him do his work right after school and sometimes I let him go outside to play for a while. It just depends on how he feels. My children know that homework comes before anything else but I also realize how important it is for them to be able to concentrate on what they are doing. If they need a break from reading and homework then I'm all for it. I really think it depends on the child!

my daughter is in 7th grade and she does her homework in study hall and she is a b student and my son does it right when he gets home and that works out good for us

I do my h.work whenever i feel like it, because if i do it when i don't feel like doing it then i do worse, but that doesn't matter, cuz i get honors! But i have to start my hm.work before 8pm for me so it ranges frrom 3 to 8pm. Sometimes i need to rest and sometimes i feel like doin hm.work and somtimes i fell like reading. =)

I have three boys and i tryed to give them an hour to relax there mind and it didnt work. When it was time to get back to the homework everybody wanted to pout and whine and take forever, so now when they come in they have a snack and tell me bout there day and start on their homework and then they go outside to play basketball and football with friends.

While in elementary, my oldest did her homework right when she got home. But then as she got older and busier, she did it at bed time. My middle child was always burned out and mentally fatigued when she got home from school. She was, and still is, a morning person. She liked to wake up early and do her homework before school. She's in college now and still does her best work before 7 am. My youngest... we're still trying to find the time of day when she's at her most cooperative and eager to learn. Translation: She does it when we sit on her and make her do it!

My son is in 1st grade and dose his home work in the evening before dinner and sometimes before and after dinner depends on him. I think in his case time to relax after school with a hike or general play works,his grades could not be better and he's happy , so it works for us.

I give my kids an hour of play time after school to let out some of their energy. I find they focus better when they aren't as wound up from sitting in a classroom all day.

Do you allow your children to watch TV or play on the computer before doing their homework?
