My 8 year old child attends a local Martial arts class where he has many good friends, and enjoys going.
He is quite talented and works hard in the class, but receives little guidance and praise from teacher; maybe because the teacher expects them to practice at home, and he can clearly see that my son doesn't.
His friends respect him, and that appears to be enough for him, but the crux of the problem, is that, whilst he is talented, he will only practice at home for 2 to 3 Min a week; even though i'm more than happy to practice with him.
1) Is 10 min of practice a day, too much to expect an 8 year old to do?
I don't care what level he achieves, all I care about is that he tries outside the class to improve, little and often.
