my boy is careless in the sense that he made transfer errors, and error from reading his ugly handwriting.
he makes same mistake over and over again as in for the same question that he got wrong, he can get the same question (same! not similar!) wrong again when i ask him a few months later. the same goes with spelling and tingxie.
vomit blood....


we should be best buds... :smile: My boy is also in the same situation. So many careless mistakes, he can't even read his own handwriting, let alone the teacher. The worse are the transfer mistakes. Marks thrown away just like that...

for my boy, brain-drain after each paper....:sweat:


Yes... no kidding...
It used to be 2 papers a day... seriously takes almost the whole day.

Now, 3 papers can be sorted out in a morning.

This IS the difference when the child is self-motivated versus an external motivation (pressure).

Blessed we are, things just fell into place through a lot of adjustments and learning process. That's why I posted, so that others may look into a similar direction and hopefully find the same pot of gold.


thanks for posting your experiences. It is an inspiration.
