Homework issues? Here are Jeff Brazier's seven tips for helping your child to help themselves.
Environment is key...
You wouldn't be able to work with people screaming and shouting so why would our kids? Set up a homework-friendly / sibling-proof area. Make sure kids have a well-lit, quiet, calm and comfortable place to complete homework. Keep supplies - paper, pencils, glue, scissors - within reach. This will help them to focus on what they are doing and limit the amount of distractions that might disturb their masterpieces!
A big problem for me personally as a single parent, is how do I divide myself between two kids of two different ages at homework time, especially when they both need my attention? Depending on their mood sometimes it works great to just separate them and spend a few minutes rotating between them. In an ideal world they both complete their tasks on their own but in reality, or certainly for me it doesn't really turn out that way! If they are stuck I help them move on past the problem until they are done.
Today South African athlete Oscar Pistorius will discover his fate following a six-month murder trial.
The double-amputee Olympic star denies he intentionally shot his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp dead in the early hours of Valentine's Day last year, telling the police he mistook her for an intruder in his house.
As the judge begins delivering her verdict in the Oscar Pistorius trial, Mark Williams Thomas, the only journalist to have spent time with the athlete during his arrest, sums up the case for us.
South Africa is a country steeped in history - but from what I have observed over the past year it could not be further from the old regime and that of apartheid.
The case against Oscar Pistorius is one of the largest - if not the largest - of the decade , not just in South Africa but around the world.
The new South Africa is evident in Judge Thokozile Masipa, who is presiding over such an important trial. She is a former social worker turned journalist who was once arrested and jailed for taking part in a protest.
Her significance in the trail will be played out tomorrow - when along with her two assistants she will decide Oscar's fate, giving her verdicts on all the charges that he faces.
