Hii all , i am in such a dilemma. My boy just turned 10 and is in p4 this year. I noticed a big change all of a sudden here, he has become more lazy, likes to use my i phone and see tv all the time. He spends his time eating and watching the laptop cartoons.

He goes tuition for 2x a week only but other than that, he never studies. If I give him some work to do ,he scribbles in his Assestment book.

I keep getting complaints from his teachers that he doesnt copy down corrections properly and keeps making silly mistakes. When my husband and I scold him for something, he raises his voice at us, and argues. Something which he never did before. When I talk to him nicely to ask what is the problem, he says that we keep scolding him.

Anyone in the same position ?
