Humpday Headaches ...

I have a lingering, but not bad, headache today. I got new glasses yesterday and that may be the cause.  I also may have to take them back to be adjusted or even remade, because my left eye isn't focusing right in them.  But, I'll give it another day or so.   Anyone else have a really hard time adjusting to new glasses? I go through this every time. Ugh.

So, fluff for relief ...

Do you know how to ride a horse? When was the last time you did so?

Do you know how to ski? When was the last time you did so?

Did you ever have some weird or odd one-time job? Or do anything odd to earn money for a summer as a kid?

DS loves math!  I hate the comon core stuff however, they've added more steps than necessary to that subject the most.

So most often she has only limited work to do in each class outside of class?

Ds does very well in math and has no problem with common core.

Dd does very well in science.

It all depends on the day and the class. She doesn't have homework in all 8 classes either.

I agree, I have one kid (regular classes) who spendt 2-3 hours on homework a night and another who spent about 1-2 (honors classes) hours a night.  But I also agree with sav, for a kid in high school with sports and a job, one hour most nights often is not enough.

I don't know about sav, but at least for me...I'm home from work before they are from school.

Again, as Jams said, you can't go by time with homework as it all goes by teachers and how much they give and how long said homework takes a particular child.

Ok, I can see that then. I am not and most working parents are not either. If kids are in aftercare, they do their homework there also so most parents would not know how long they took either.

Yea, I understand that.  I just can't imagine spending such limited time on school work outside of school, but I guess it also depends on the content and type of classes one is taking.

Which is why both sav and I have said often not always...and I think the big differnce that also needs to be taken into account is the content an type of class one is taking.  For example Chemistry is going to take more time than say, Concepts of Chemistry but less time than Honors Chemistry or AP Chemistry.
