These days are very difficult for students because competition is very tough for those. All students are very busy in studies to got good percentage in exams. My son is in 7th class. His exams is started on 16 February. Ans he is very busy with his studies. So i should be a lot of care for him. Now we got a little time to play with each other. Wish him best of luck for his exams.

I totally understand it! I remember that my hardest year was 8th grade year because of exams and trying to get into the high school of my choice. I didn't think my first year of high school was as difficult as that. Things got harder later on. My sister is currently an 8th grader and her school gives vast amounts of homework! It's crazy! She just recently went to the Science Fair competition and she forgot it was this past Tuesday! She called to say, "The Science Fair is today! I forgot." I was freaking out because for us Science Fair is a HUGE thing! I've been in competitions since 1st grade and my sisters are following. Everything was ready I was just afraid she wouldn't be ready to talk but she was and she won 1st place! Lately she's been forgetting a lot of things and I don't blame her! She doesn't get enough sleep either! Her school has her in mandatory after school activities EVERY DAY! I volunteer after school once a week directing one of her clubs and we leave for home at 6pm. She also just had an interview for high school and that went well so we're just waiting. My first semester of college was very difficult for me. Less class time was the good thing, the bad part was that a lot of things happened in the family and I was having to deal with to many things all at once. This semester is a lot lighter on me. I have my classes and I get my work done and study but I can do other things as well, such as helping my sister with her homework.

Good luck for Him. For me it is true that nowadays, diligent student is very busy. A lot of things must be done, exams, projects, papers, presentation, mid terms, and lots more! It is amazing if I could find one student still hang out happily everyday. The key of all this stuff is time management and support from themselves and from their community. I wish I could try to enjoy every part of learning. Happy mylotting :D

Well, it's not at bad as you think . Personally , I think you should just sit down with him and plan a proper timetable to divivde his time equally. Just having the timetable is not enough , it must be like a daily routine for you and your son :) Wish him good luck for me :)

hi i agree with your view that student life is difficult in these days.as a student i feel stress to stay in school for 10 hours in a day to study .in my 10th class we used to have only one game period to cheer out and it is frustrating to me.now in college i have ample time to study and play..anyway i wish your son to get good marks in exams...
