Actually I don't have special techniques in coping the stress brought by academic part. What I usually do is I set 3.30pm-6.30pm as homework/revision time. So during this time my boy will do his homework, learn his spelling/dictation, and I'll go through his work and revise through what is being taught in school. After 6.30pm he is free to watch TV or do what he pleases. A week before exam, revision will continue after dinner for about an hour. Teachers usually give adequate amount of homework, not too overloading like the mainstream. However, the amount of homework also quite depend on which class your child is in. For the better classes, do expect more homework than those of slower pace. So far all these years my boy is in the average class, so that's why I say it's still manageable.
Is your son able to do his homework independently now?
Is there different type of classes in PL? May I know what are they?
Did you enroll your son to any tuition center?
So sorry for posting so much questions.
