My son is in his second year, and due to lecturer strikes, followed by the lockdown, has hardly had any tutoring or lectures this year. The online offerings promised have been underwhelming. The upshot (downshot) of this has been that he has lost his mojo, and from getting firsts in his coursework is now talking about dropping out. He had been loving it.

Are any of your kids suffering anything similar, and if so, any ideas? I'd imaging there is the same at secondary level too, but the distance makes it harder.
