Homeschoolers, relaxed or tight schedule?

For the ladies that home school I have a question for you. Or if you plan to home school please answer as well!

Do you keep a relaxed schedule or do you keep a tight schedule? Do you insist on certain things being done at certain times and impose a late penalty if not (like for projects)? If you don't mind, tell me a little bit about your home schooling technique!

      I am pretty flexible. School has to be done every day unless they are sick or it's their birthday. Yes we give them a day off on their birthday from school and most chores because we do not usually take the normal holidays off except for Christmas and Thanksgiving.

      Our older ones are pretty much on their own for their studies. Our oldest is already living with the consequences of not completing certain things when she should have. So no penalties necessary. She's stressed out enough.
