    I wont open the front door until my year 2 and preschooler repeat the routine of uniform off and shoes put away, lunch boxes emptied, play til homework at 4pm, even the dr said a one bribe of a lolly to start homework and one at end then no fussing etc.
    Outside play til dinner at 5.30pm, then bath and no tv until about 7pm for half an hour in our house its too addictive. Then reading in bed.

    Currently we have just one school aged child who is nearly 8 and in yr 2. My other daughter will be starting kindy next year.

    After school pick up the girls have an afternoon snack and then DD1 starts on her homework. We try and limit it to 30 minutes but sometimes if we need to work on a certain thing that she's just started learning it can go for 45 minutes.

    After homework they can watch tv or a dvd. They also have some outdoor play time in the backyard pretty much every afternoon.

    When DH comes home around 6 he gives them a shower or bath while I make dinner/tidy up. Dinner is usually around 7 and they are in bed about 45 minutes later. DD1 has gymnastics training in the evening twice a week so the routine changes slightly on those days.

    The night before school DD1 has her bag packed and her uniform ready. I prepare her lunch and fill up a water bottle ready for her to pack the next morning. Makes our morning routine so much more smoother and less time consuming (because we'd rather stay in bed that extra half hour in the morning haha!).

    Thanks so much everyone. The thing I really struggle with is homework and bed times. I'll come back later and explain in more detail.

    Ours is something like this

    3:30 DS1 and I get home we usually either do any quick jobs (like grabbing milk etc.) before we pick up DS2 from day care. Today he is staying in longer because we are walking up a mountain track and he is only 3.

    4 - 4:30pm alternates between me taking them in their scooters down the path and then playing together at home.

    5:20 - I make dinner and get clothes off line (boys help)

    5:30 - dinner for boys (often they have this at the gym crèche if I'm doing a class)

    6:30 - home from gym or finish play and have a bath. Then bath, story, bed for DS2

    DS1 will read me his reader or do his homework but is in bed by 7pm

    7pm - I clean up house, pack lunches for next day, fold clothes while watching telly.

    I have DS1 in gr1, DS2in kinder and DS3 is nearly two. This is our loose after school routine....

    3:45 home, snack, reader (no tv or technology until reader is done)
    4:15-5:30 free time (outside if its not yukky)
    5:30 dinner
    6:30 shower or bath
    7:00 a piece of fruit if still hungry (they are always still hungry, Haha) brush teeth
    7:30 DS3 bed
    8-8:30 DS1 &DS2 bed (books in bed if they still want to read)

    We have swimming one night a week, on that night routine is almost the same. DS1 has his snack i have the car, and usually does his reader while DS2 has his lesson (they are in different times). I also have dinner prepped and ready to go so i just have to heat it up when we get home, usually about 5:30.

    DS is in year 2 and DD is in prep.

    When we get home from school it's afternoon tea then straight into homework.

    Free play time (no iPod/iPad during the week, 30 minutes of TV maximum)

    Piano practice for 5 minutes before dinner (DS)

    Dinner

    Shower

    Quiet time before bed (if time). The kids usually draw

    Readers at bedtime.

    Bed by 8pm.

    We are pretty strict with this. DS has soccer training on Mondays and DD dancing on Wednesdays so they are factored in.

    Friday through to Saturday the rules are relaxed. iPod/iPad are allowed but not without permission. 30 minutes maximum at a time.

    my routine was 3.45 - 4.00 home from school. uniforms off, play clothes on, school bags unpacked, and homework done. maybe a snack of fruit. dinner ready to eat at about 6pm. bath, story, quite time until lights out at 7.30. As they got older, the homework increased so the bedtime moved later and later. no tv in the morning, and very little tv in the afternoon. Marie.
