What if they are doing HW and on line quiz that takes more than an hour?

they will have to be more disciplined. :boogie:

They know they have 1hr. :wink:

If genuinely they require longer, when i am back they have to justify and i will adjust for that day again.

when they are matured, gradually 1 by 1, i let go... again. maturity in their own hands. monitoring and control by weeks, by month...

My son has made some improvement for his recent Prelim 2. He has passed all except for AMath despite me getting a very expensive tutor . He managed to shed off some points from 33 to 24.
However he did not do well for his O level MT. Only got a B4 and language used to be his stronger subjects. He was very disappointed and his teacher was even more discouraging. Telling them not to retake the year end paper and concentrate on other subjects instead...anyway he did sign up to retake.

Expensive Courses no point if your son is not motivated in the first place. Try sitting down, talking to him. Explain the importance. If he doesnt understand then take away his gadgets and use them as a reward for achieving a goal u set. A bit late, but hope this helps others

I suggest you strongly monitor your son when doing online quizzes. Temptation to cheat, slack or procrastinate pretty high. As for HW make him settle a time limit with u then make sure he follows it.

Usually I think school teacher will not have so many online HW or quiz to complete... For my dd, most online HW have to be printed out before doing.

If you child want to learn how to be bad want to stop also cannot stop. Go army you cannot see cannot stop him anymore. Left 3 more years to army anyway. Need to teach him how to think for himself and not force him to do things anymore
