My son started his secondary school about 3 weeks ago. He only seems to spend about 1 hour doing his homework each night and spends the rest of the time playing games on the computer. It seems that he only does the necessary amount of homework. How can I persuade him to take more interest n his school work? Do you think he should be getting me homework that at the moment?
Finally, I know that the students are divided into groups for Maths/English according to ability. However, my son does not know which group he is in - he just seems to go with the flow !!
Do you think I shoud make an appointment with the school and get more information regarding the above or do you think I should wait for another few weeks in order for him to settle in his new school.
It may be worth having a telephone conversation with his form tutor first to see if they have any concerns, and if so, then make an appointment to see them. It's quite possible that the amount of work he's doing is enough to get the work done.
