How long does it take for your kids to do their homeowrk?

Do they do it independently or do they need someone to sit with them?

Do they need a lot of help, or can they do mos tof it on their own?

For Eudoxia, it depends on what it is, if its english or art or history, then for the most part she's fine (dates regarding to history cause her a bit of grief though)
Math, science, geography, well, I have to sit with her, it takes hours and usually results in alot of tears. She gets easier work for the math, which really isnt a big bonus, but at least she isnt expected to fill out double-sided sheets of long division. The stupid special ed teacher dosent fully grasp the fact that math translates over into science and geography aswell, and thinks that she dosent need special help for those subjects.

My other kids are all fine, River tries to put it off, because in his view there are hundreds of better things he could be doing, but once his father puts on his stern voice he gets the picture and does it.

Alexis is only in K, so she sets about 20 minutes of homework a week, but I have to sit and help her with it. Her fine motor skills aren't really great so she needs help stabilizing her pencil and she does have trouble doing it on her own.

Candice is the only one who has homework. She can take forever and in the 6th grade still needs redirection, but we don't sit with her as much as we used to when she was younger.

I am glad to hear that Candice is improving and learning how to accomplish it on her own.
