The boys are currently in 8th grade. Next year the work will get harder. I don't know how often we will be up this late, but they really don't like doing their school work.
When I am home every night next school year, I will be able to sit with them and make sure the homework. I suppose if they had more "normal" parents they would have an more sympathy. But with a Dad who loads his iPhone with language apps to parse French verbs and study Greek vocabulary, they don't get much slack on studying. And Mom stays up at night writing papers that advance the field of projective geometry. They can't even whine about math or Mom might break into a five-minute explanation of how beautiful math is.
