DS is now in P3.
Morning school routine has settled down by bringing forward sleep time to 9:00. But there seems to be so little "free" time. He loves to read books and wants to explore so many things now but we just don't have time! Is his time crowded with classes or we just need better time planning? Every time we want to drop a class one of us (DH, DS, me) have some objections.
Mon: He is back by 1:30. Has lunch etc. Piano lessons at (home) 3:30-5:00. We don't stress much about exams, in fact encourge the teacher and DS to explore non traditional pieces as well. He practices for about 30 mins atleast 3 times a week.
Tues: back by 1:30. Has lunch etc. Chinese lessons at (home) 2:30-4:00.
Wed-Fri: back by 4:00 (CCA and band competition practise at school).
Fri (5:00-6:00), Sun(10:30-11:30): Swimming (this is needed as he is asthmatic).
Sat: Tae-kwon-do for 2 hours (4-6 p.m.) (he really enjoys this and is at a higher belt now)
Everyday plays from 6:30-7:30 (outdoor). Dinner at 8.
He usually tries to finish homework 5:30-6:00. There is language homework almost everyday. Most subjects have some weekend home work.
Do appreciate comments from fellow parents. Thanks!
So little time?
