Yes: Homework has some controversies these days - especially in very young children. In teens it can help promote self discipline and also helps them learn self study skills for preparation for college. http://phil413.quazen.com/kids-and-teens/college-life/the-benefits-of-homework/

6-7am: Most teenagers have to go to school, and that means getting up somewhere between 6 and 7am to get ready for the bus or to drive to school. I think what you're really asking is, how much sleep should they get? The average teenager should get between 8-9 hours sleep, and some even more. Most don't get that though which is why many are so tired.

Try not go make your teen feel guilty about it. Guilt will not help. Unless the masturbation is being done to the exclusion of most all other activity, it normal, fine and common among both boys and girls. Give them some privacy.
