We went to visit some friends on Friday afternoon, and their eldest was hard at work on a long-term project due on the next Friday.
This was the second time we came a calling and the eldest was getting her homework done on Friday afternoon.
I was impressed by the discipline of the child and the adult. By the time Friday afternoon comes we are just done. We just want to bum around and do nothing.
But then comes Sunday afternoon, and we have to get to work. My two kids were working on their long-term projects on Sunday instead of playing.
So I am wondering do other families work on homework on Friday afternoon or put it off until Sunday afternoons? To which do the kids seem to be more amenable?
