Dear So & So

How do I……

help my 11 year old boy keep himself organised? Is it even possible because I’m starting to wonder? It’s only his second week of secondary school and already he has a big black stamp in his organiser saying ‘Homework not done’. Ok, so it’s not that big but I was so disappointed to see it and…
