Hello,

The whole 11 plus experience, be it stressfull for the parents like myself and my son has had its positives.

Over the last week or so after the tests, I have noticed how grown up and mature he has become. He reads without being told, does his homework and generally sees the importance of learning more clearly. I wouldn't say he has become more serious, more focused perhaps. He has matured over the last few months, but the change is more noticeable and I am proud of this transition.

Have you had similar experiences?

If only!

My DS is unaware of anything of importance - unless you include Aston Villa, in fact sport in general, the Simpsons, pizza & his mates...

quite a shock when it happens - nearly slid under the table when DD started talking about GCSE options at the beginning of year 8!!!!
WHAT.... such thoughts never entered the brain before and really caught me on the hop..
Do find kids develop suddenly in these areas, I agree it is really nice to see.

Oy.... Aston Villa, whatever next??????? :shock:

Herman was brought up as a Blues fan... my headmaster used to sit behind me at St Andrews :wink:

My DS is just glad she does not need to goto to tutition any more. Never seen her smile so much on a saturday morning now.
She was always mature for her age.

As for the footie: Up the Villa.

We moved to the Midlands when DS1 was 5 or so and he rapidly adopted Aston Villa as his religion... Stuck with them through thick and thin (including a couple of years as a junior season ticket holder) and recently took his girlfriend to her first game. Fortunately they won 5-1 - she should obviously go every week!

Cruelty making them support such a horrid team the Villa aka the Vile... you should bring them up to support a beautiful team like BCFC now thats a team :).
