I would continue. He will blame you if he gets to Year 7 and struggles. He is lucky. Lots of students would love to get the support he is getting and what would he be doing with the time otherwise? Playing computer games or watching TV? Lots of parents tell me how "lucky" I am that my dd's are "so bright". Not lucky or bright. They just work hard and don't watch TV or play computer games. DG
It's the same here daogroupie, screen time is half an hour by the clock a day, rest of time is their own to 'mess around/contemplate navel/squabble' and yes, in there is that 10 mins a day, only during the week.
ooo if you want an honest answer, I would say give them a break - they have done the exams now and will have plenty to do when they get into year 7.... sometimes it is nice to other things for the rest of year 6.
Hermanmunster, its a tough one, as I can see that point of view of give them a break. However, this isn't about tiger mothering and getting them ahead. It's about equipping them, in particular one of them, to be able to go into maths at grammar and not feel so behind that it knocks his confidence for ever. He is so so panicky about it, and the maths coach, a man with much humour and gentleness, is the only person who can work with him for a half hour and get him laughing and 'enjoying' the problems. As a result of this his teacher told us his maths progress had been 'quite exceptional' last year. Plus, it is ten minutes, not a half hour a night or more, just ten minutes, and I'm more keen to sell it than to give it up. But thank you, I am very aware of not putting too much on them.
