Subject: Trying something new with the nephews

Oh, how my nephews hate online schooling. Their attitudes leave a lot to be desired about.

I think it was Mary who mentioned that she made her kids wear a school uniform for online classes. It makes it more formal for them. If it wasn't Mary I am sorry, but it is a good idea. Here their classes begin at 8.45 They normally would have left here between 8-8.15 to get to school. So the aim is to have them replicate a normal school day at home. Prior to this they just had to be ready to start at 8.45.

Their mother will have them out of bed by 7.15. Boy that will be a struggle to start with. lol At the end of the school day, they will have a free hour to do what they want including exercising outside. Then, straight into homework.

My sister will tell them all this shortly. I wonder how this will go down initially?

We will be in lockdown for at least another 2 weeks I reckon, maybe a touch more. Maybe wishful thinking on my part.

What do you all think of this? Have you got any suggestions to help us out? How did it go for most of you in the lockdowns you had last year?
