What would you like her to be doing in her free periods?
We hardly see either of ours at the moment (Y10 and 12), they both disappear off to their rooms as soon as they get in, appearing only briefly for meals, and I'm pretty certain they're both mostly doing homework rather than just being left to their own devices (
sorry, very bad pun
). Both spend almost the whole weekend the same way. Anything that reduced that time would be a good thing imho but son's free periods are rather unhelpfully an entire Monday morning every fortnight (I sincerely hope he's not leaving homework until Monday morning
) and iirc the Tuesday afternoon of the intervening week - still too early in the week to have accumulated much work. I would hope both would be taking any opportunity to reduce the homework load.
