    10-year old girl entering 5th grade (she is the oldest with siblings ages 8 and 4): Some of her schedule is now determined by her; for example, she chooses to stay up late and sleep as late as possible, but she concerns herself with getting 10 hours of sleep. Also, although I am available to help with homework, she rarely needs help and is responsible for getting it done whenever she chooses.7:30 a.m. Wake up by her alarm clock, get dressed, eat breakfast (I cook for the kids each morning before school).8 a.m. Walk to school with younger brother and neighbor friends8:30 a.m. School begins3:40 p.m. School ends; walk home with mom, siblings, and friends4 – 5 p.m. I think of this as "yes hour", but I don't tell the kids that! It's free time and I keep myself available to say "yes" to going to the park, having friends over, playing a game, etc. She has drawing lessons one afternoon per week. No screen time except on Fridays and Saturdays.5- 6 p.m. Help prepare dinner some nights, chores, free time6 p.m. Dinner, then family scripture study7-7:30 p.m. Free time7:30 p.m. Shower, bedtime routine (read aloud with mom & brother)8 p.m. Tucked into bed. This is when she chooses to do her homework, read, or do projects in her room.9:30 p.m. Lights out
