  • I think I'm going to go crazy

    My younger brother has an exam tomorrow and he's left all his revision to the last LAST minute. I've been sitting with him for 3 hours now...going through fractions, decimals, percentages, probability, area and so forth.

    After having discussed all this......I then decide to test him on everything we've covered so far.

    And the result is....nothing! He's forgotten it all.

    And subhanallah he is blaming me for being too strict of a teacher :eek3: And now he refuses to study with me.....

    Mashallah he's an intelligent kid - He's a top student at school - but he's quite lazy :p What would be the best method to sit him down and force him to concentrate? I even made him repeat the duaas that you recite before you start studying

    We are having a 15 minutes break of revision......so any advice........now....would be appreciated.

    Jazakallah Khair.
    Give me a clear vision, that I may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless I stand for something, I will fall for anything.

    1. stop bullying him

    2. bribe him, tell him you will buy him latest game or something if he passes exam with good mark :up:
    Some claim that u are like any one of us, But who can claim, to have visited the Arsh? We say bashr, but respect is also due. For mankind are like rocks, but a pearl are u. U travelled the 7Heavens, and ur eyes did not lie. For Jibril could not pass, but u, O Madani, glided by.

        1) Okay maybe I am a little too strict...but that's only because I want him to get top grades :( He's very intelligent...only when he's bothered.

        2) I said I'll buy him Mario Galaxy for WII

              haha he sounds like me :p

              First of all you have to stop being so mean (I know this is hard to do cuz its wat u do best :D) . Next give him a really tough problem and my guess is if he's like me he won't quit untill he solves it and that'll bring him back in the mood ....

                      If tough love doesn't work...the following must (does for my lil bro and he isn't all that little).

                      a) Don't yell at him (as hard as it is...).

                      b) When explaining, use simple examples and joke about them/ or about something relevant.

                      c) When he get's it right, encourage him and joke about with him.

                      d) Tell him that he's intelligent and just needs to concentrate...hug and kiss him and tell him he'll do well.

                      If there's one thing I've learned about my lil bro, is that tough love doesn't work with him and he's better off being 'buttered up'. Oh, and you can never get him to learn anything or listen to you if his twin sister is around.

                          Re: I think I'm going to go crazy

                          ^^ Ok well now on a serious note lol..

                          Its pointless trying to teach him everything since it just aint going to go through,

                          use your time better, he must know or his teachers must've told him what his exam is mostly going to be based on or what its most likely to contain in it,

                          So basically find out what his exam is mostly going to have in it be it Fractions, Division etc.

                          find out what his exam paper is mostly going to contain or what area of maths and focus on helping him in that area so he'll get loads of marks or atleast a close pass :up:

                          Inshallah your bro can do it,

                          I know its frustrating Kubs, but you will be the first person your bro will thank if he passes this paper :D

                            lock him up in a room with only his work and dont let him out until u see him revising through the keyhole for at least 4hours
