comment How to help a child not copy her older sibling's behavior
I repeat the question to see if they were at least paying good enough attention to copy each other, which I consider to be a minimum standard of attention. On the days they can handle that, I move on to independent questions.

We do it both to teach the content of the video and to work on their listening and comprehension skills. It probably seems weird because most families outsource those lessons, but we homeschool so things like this are a natural part of our daily family routine. I should note that it's not just this one video per day where he gets "stuck" like that. This is just a representative example. It's not just academic questions, but also questions like, "Where did you put your toy?"
