I don't think you want to do a forced logout since that would prevent the child from saving their homework. My suggestion would be to do one of these:
I know that my kids often need to upload homework to their professor, so either approach listed here would work.

Katie, here's the screen shot of my daughter's time settings. Today was like yesterday, the program seemed to work at first - she requested more time at 6:30pm and I granted it till 8:45pm. Once again she was still able to be online after that for 15 minutes until I told her time was up. I was using my laptop while watching tv so I checked to see if she logged off at the appropriate time and she had not. I told her this morning the computer would be taken away if I can't trust her to get off at the required time. She turned the computer off (my husband checked) and I kept monitoring the account. After a few minutes, it indicated she was online again, I called her name and she then logged off. I showed her the indicator that shows if she is online. Why is she able to be online after the time is up? Why is it working for the initial time limit but then not after that?
And a strange thing happened after that. My son is supposed to be off the computer by 9:30pm. I noticed he had gone offline around 9:15pm. He came into the same room as my husband and I were in, watched tv for a minute, then I noticed his account showed that he was online again! He was sitting in the same room with us and the computer was turned off! He double checked to make sure he had turned it off and he had. After about 10 minutes the online indicator went off again. What's up with that? We don't put any of our computers in sleep mode, we turn them all off when finished for the day.
