Mums of school age kids - how much homework does your child get, and do you agree with it?

Daniel's went ok for a bit but is now creeping back up and starting to annoy me again.

Reese dosn't get too much, but Jake's amount of homework is ridiculous, especially since we have problems getting him to sit still and do it. Homework time is very stressful in our house. As Jake is putting all his energy into being like the other kids in school and sitting still in his chair and trying to be like everyone else, the minute he comes home you can practically see him fall apart the minute he walks in the door, its all the stress from having to conform to rules coming out of him and it continues for the rest of the day. I really think for a 7yr old, it is too much, it could be going on for about 2 hrs.

Forever missing my 3 angel babies: Harry, Ewan, and Audrey.
I am at one with God and with Nature. I feel my oneness with absolutely everything.

Jaidyn's in P1 (reception) and her homework should take no more than 15 minutes each day Mon-Thurs, it usually takes her about 5!
Lucas is in P7 (Yr 6) and his should take no more than 30 minutes each day, again Mon-Thurs. It usually takes him about 15-20 minutes.
The older two are in S3 & S5 (Yr 9 & Yr 11) so their's varies throughout the week.

I have no problems with the younger two and homework as it is just a small extension of the school day, homework is done as soon as they get home.

The older two can have a bit much at times especially if they have stuff to do for each subject on the one day.
