Matt Doing His English Assignments

       Okay, a quick update on Matt's schooling progress. We sat down tonight and reviewed where he is in each subject as opposed to where he should be. So far he's looking good!!
       For the first set of books I made him stick as strictly as possible to the required number of pages/day/subject. It was stressful for both of us and he wasn't retaining what he'd read in Biology.
       For this second set I've allowed him to devote full days to individual subjects. This has helped him a lot and we are both less stressed.
        I've also noticed that he is beginning to actively take responsibility for and control of his own education. He's noticing what locations are more conducive to studying, realizing when he needs more and less concentrated study time!
       It's great to see this maturing and new sense of personal responsibility.
