    Default Kids Classes - how many on weeknights vs weekends

    How many people take their kids to classes/sport/activities on weeknights & how many on weekends? It seems alot of it is on weeknights & if so how do you fit in around dinner & other obligations.

    Having more contact with my stepdaughter & trying to figure out fitting in all the classes? Would love to see how other families divide up these extra curricula activities.

    Homework is mostly done on a Monday.
    But spelling and home readers are done every night. ( although ds1 doesn't "need" to read every night as he is well and truly ahead of the target he should be at by grade 4 and he is in grade 2 so if something's gotta give, it's the book)

    Tuesday's r free.

    Wednesday is football training.

    Thursday's are free,

    Fridays are free.

    Saturday's are football games.

    Sunday's free... I think that having to many activities is too much for kids.

    Little tackers go hard at school all week & have football.

    They do swimming lessons at school, which both of them are really good at anyway.

    We used to do gymnastics on a Wednesday from 3.30 to 4.30, but then I got her into after school care so she had to stop.

    She also did trampoline sports on Saturday 10am to 11.30am, swimming from 12.30 to 1 then athletics from 2 to 5.

    She coped well but I was working full time through the week, spent the whole of Saturday at various activities, which left Sunday to do all cleaning, baking, shopping.

    It can be hard to fit everything in!

    yes some kids find activities plus school, too taxing.

    all kids are different.

    I have four kids and we have something on for somebody everyday except Sunday which is family day. DD1 trains most nights until 7-7.30pm and until noon on Saturday and yes, it's an absolute juggle

    In our house, it wasn't the child who found it taxing

    We are free all through the week. Dd1 does gymnastics on a Saturday morning from 9-1030. And ds starts grasshopper soccer this Sunday's and thats from 9-930 so there goes any chance I ever had of having a sleep in on the weekends

    we had it all sorted with dd1 dancing saturday morning and dd2 had gymnastics at the same hall just different areas and it was back to back classes..
    then over school holidays they decided dd2's level will practice monday after school 4-6pm.
    she now refuses to go. it is so hard as she's really good at it. im hoping they bring it back to the weekends soon! frustrating!!
