    Children will usually express their frustration and difficulties in a general way, with statements like "I hate reading!" or "This is stupid!". But if they could, this is how kids might describe how comprehension difficulties in particular affect their reading:
    In other words:

    Here, this might help you in the future.
    What kids can do to help themselves

    Use outlines, maps, and notes when you read.

    Make flash cards of key terms you might want to remember.

    Read stories or passages in short sections and make sure you know what happened before you continue reading.

    Ask yourself, "Does this make sense?" If it doesn't, reread the part that didn't make sense.

    Read with a buddy. Stop every page or so and take turns summarizing what you've read.

    Ask a parent or teacher to preview a book with you before you read it on your own.

    As you read, try to form mental pictures or images that match the story.

    RhinoUP, do you train in any type of grappling?

    Only reason why I ask is I'm thinking if you plonked son on the sidelines at class, he'd see dad grappling and what son doesn't want to be like his dad at 5 years old?

    Why 10-12 ? The BJA sets a minimum age of 8, doesn't it...?

    Yeah, but the BJA are a bunch of elitist wankers.

    The BJC sets it at 5.

    Good to hear, sometimes they just need to just over come their insecurities. Especially with big mean instructors. :P
