We’re only two months into the school year and already we’re drowning in extra-curricular activities. How much is too much? Can you suggest any practical guidelines?
I’m a single mum of a teenage son who’s never been given any responsibility. He’s spoiled, and it’s my fault. I wanted to make things easier for him because he didn’t have a dad, but I realise now that it’s only made him self-centred and ill-equipped for adult life. Is it too late to turn this around?
