    Default Annoying is a good thing

    We just started t4l yesterday and there's one thing I really like: it bugs you to death if you pick the wrong answer by accident in practice. My son gets careless about his answers. He's really bright but he tends to score lower than his ability because he just picks the first thing that seems like it might be right or he's just a tad sloppy. When he kept picking the wrong answers in the rounding section of math he had to listen to the explanation every time. That'll keep the kid in line!

    It's nice that there's something that slows him downs and makes him stop to think. It's frustrating for him, but just enough to make him try to avoid it in the future.

    I'm sure there are times when annoying is just annoying, but for once it's a good thing.

    My son just did a rounding lesson yesterday also and he is like yours. He will go to fast just to get it done. He kept getting upset at it so I told him to slow down and then he did fine. I will remind him of that next time he tries to speed through something.
