However, 4 to 5 hours a day of home schooling is actually quite a lot. Kids in the entertainment business (film, tv, theater) are only required to do 3 hours per day. When you do you schooling at home you can usually get it done faster. If you think about it kids in regular schooling go to school about 7 hours per day, but think about how much of that time is spent doing pointless/busy work. Not to mention lunch time, and at Sophia's age, recess. Plus gym, art, music.
