Hi, I have a teenage son (14 years) who is an avid reader and finds all the time in the world to read books from the Library. During the week, he is also enrolled for guitar classes and cricket coaching. He has a very high grasping capacity (time and again tested by his friends & family on the books he reads and the movies he has seen). My problem is : he never practises guitar on his own accord. We have to constantly remind/nag him about his practice and threaten to discontinue his music classes for him to practise. My question is : should i discontinue his music classes? (2) He also has failed in 2 subjects the first unit test and another new subject in the I Term Exam. How do i get him to focus on his studies and his music ?
