Now that Matthew is out of kindergarten and into 1st Grade, I was wondering if any of you out there in xanga land can give me some idea as to how you schedule your school children’s time.
He finishes school at 1 pm, then eats lunch at home. We try to get him to take a nap sometime in the afternoon. Other than this, we don’t have too much of a routine established.
Some of the kids go for after school lessons but I wonder if this is too much. When is best to do homework or other learning activities? How much time should be spent on this? How much TV (videos/DVD’s) is acceptable? What about other outside activities or play with other children? (We don’t have too many organized activities for children here but have been thinking of sending him to Jr. Sold. on Sat.)
Any feedback would be helpful.
