Time spent doing homework with all the kids
 
How many hours a day do you think you spend doing homework with your kids combined?

Our kids do their homework together around the dining table so I can't really say.

I don't do homework, that's their job, not mine. If they can't figure it out....ask an older kid.

I sit from about 9am til 1pm working with different ones on their school work. Sometimes in the evening I have another math session with the big girls.

I only help if they ask.
DH does Sasha's reader with him every night, usually takes 5-10mins.

0 hours.

Like UM said, it's their homework not mine. I answer a question here and there, but that's about it.

We homeschool - so no homework, but I spend about 1-1.5 hours a day doing school work with the kids. We typically do the same subject at the same time with all the kids, just at different levels. The older ones do much of their work on their own and just ask for help when needed.

When my older were in school, maybe an hour, but that wasn't me sitting right there with them. They did it on their own.

Cole needed more one on one and would only do his homework before school in the mornings.

now I homeschool. Aiden needs a lot of my attention as he is learning concepts. The other two call on me as needed.

I hate homework. The older kids do their own. Now that they do ipads in middle school Noah hardly has homework ever. They just do it during the day on the programs on the ipad. It's kinda nice.

Jayde cries about her homework every night, but I don't help her, unless she needs something like to log into a word program on the computer to type something.

Sydney's teacher is awesome so she has 2 things a week, she's good at doing it in her free time, or right when she gets home.

RJ is supposed to do 15 minutes of reading a night, and then some math thing like IXL or xtramath on the computer at home. He usually only reads about 10 minutes and does math like 2x a week, because I did my 13 years of school and I'm over it! lol

only 2 different grades to deal with during the day school but each pretty different lessons. with DD1 I quiz her on the list of spelling words and also help her with her reading that requires me to fill in 5 circles that say she read and then signatures.

Plus she sometimes needs a little help with reading the math equations so with her its about 30 mins a day or more depending. Then DH is addressing the night school homework.

DS4 being only in K, he is memorizing sounds and counting to hundred by 1's 5's 10's ect and then I give word of the week to write a few times and a couple of other activities. Plus his reading log---he is not able to read yet ( only site words ) so I mostly read to him and have him read the words he knows or find books that focus on those site words.

SO for him its about the same , then DH handles his night schoool as well as DD2's night school.

so an hour a day give or take doesnt seem like very much to me. but seems to be the norm.
