comment When do kids start learning fractions in school?
@euroman - manipulating fractions is pretty much mandatory in algebra. Plus there are many real-world cases where fractions are just easier (unless you have a calculator on hand).

comment How can I make learning English fun for a 14 year old?
@ChristineGordon - IMHO, less so. Audio books tend to be read at the rate of a native speaker. When learning a language, it is handy to be able to stop and examine each word, possible out of order. If you don't understand a sentence, you can examine each word and guess the ones you don't know given the greater context. This is something you can not really do with an audio book.

comment Can a baby have an allergic reaction in utero?
@vignesh - The point of my post was that there is not much of a scientific consensus on allergies and new things are being still discovered. At the point of time, I would be hesitant to put to much stock in anyone claiming to speak for the scientific community.

As a matter of interest, have you looked at his diet? We had to sugar restrict our daughter at a similar age due to its effects on her behaviour.
