Do your kids do homework right when they get home?

So my friend and I have very different parenting styles. It's partially because she only has one child (girl) and I have two (one of each).

She makes her child do homework as soon as she walks in the door from school. I see that as cruel and unusual punishment and don't have my kids do it until after dinner. My theory is that kids need time to run around, have a snack, play with friends, etc. because they've been in school all day. Plus, I don't want them to miss what little sunshine is left by 4 p.m.

Well, I'm not sending this to my friend, but I just ran across this piece on the topic:
