simka2 Posted January 3, 2012 Share Posted January 3, 2012 Please help me figure this out in regards to my children. How much time should my kids homework take? I have 2 4th graders and a 5th grader. One of my 4th graders is dyslexic and ADHD (his is rather severe, but he does well on his medication. Unfortunately, his medication wears down towards the evening). I know he will take a bit longer than his twin, but what is too long? At which point do I talk to the teachers? Last night was day one back in ps. It took my ADHD/dyslexic son about 3 hours to complete his homework. I actually asked him to stop doing the work and get ready for bed, but he had a meltdown about not doing what he was told. He really wants to make his teachers happy. It broke my heart to see him up late reading at the kitchen table after all his siblings went to bed. :crying: His twin was assigned less homework and it took less time. I am going to continue to keep an eye on this throughout the week, but I wanted to get some idea on how much is reasonable. Also, he did all of his work sitting right beside me so I could help him and it still took that long. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
