When your kids are schooling online at home, you really can't know if they should be working on a paper for 20 minutes or 2 hours unless you look at the details. Most virtual schools provide the information somewhere, calling it a PACE chart or schedule. If they don't provide easy access to the information, ask for it! Speak to your child's teacher, asking how long each subject should take. My kids have some papers that only take 15-20 minutes to complete, but there have been times they have spent HOURS on a test (mind you, I do have a high school student), and when I checked to see how long the lesson should take, it said three hours!
Before you get frustrated that your child isn't completing enough in a day, be sure to check the PACE chart or schedule.
