On focus, the gap to GCSEs and helping without interferring

In this episode, you’ll hear from Barbara and her experiences with her teen daughter, Laura.  Barbara and her family moved to England from Portugal in 2013.

You might think that cultural and language issues feature among Barbara’s concerns for her GCSE facing teen. Well you – and I – would be wrong! The issues that we talk about in this conversation are common themes. They include focus and concentration, the impact of online learning and lost learning, and comparisons to an older sibling.

Importantly, we also talk about how, as parents, we can try to encourage and persuade when it comes to revision, without being overbearing.
