We get through maybe 1/4 of it a day because he's kicking and screaming the whole way he hates school work. It's so tiring but it's not like he does anything if he's not doing school work. He'll just walk around talking but not really saying anything. His only interest is video games but we've restricted them to sole the weekend.
I don't think it's too much for Ben because that's just the type of person he is, BUT it would be for ME. Does he enjoy reading? I hated reading as a kid, and there's no way I can read an hour at bedtime even now. I'd fall asleep. Reading in the car gives me a migraine and car sickness... even if it's just for a second (like trying to find something on a map while dh drives). The other stuff... math, ss, etc.... yeah, totally fine.
Is it the ETC workbook or online? I know my kid couldn't do 4 pages of writing in the workbook, but she doesn't have much of a problem doing 4 lessons of ETC online. However, for us it's not every day. More like 3x/week.
I don't think it sounds like too much. Maybe a bit repetitive though? Maybe you could change it up sometimes so it's not always so predictable? Like instead of reading a SS paragragh, draw a picture of what you read the day before, etc..?
