Q:
My son got five grade twos and one grade three in mathematics and wants to do over the math before he starts his college programme. I think it is too expensive to sit out for a whole year just to do one subject when he could have finished a year of college. Can you help me?

A: When your son is accepted by a college or university, share with his adviser his concern. I am sure the institution will guide him accordingly.

Q: My daughter will be leaving this month to go to the United States of America for college. Any last-minute tips?

A: Remind your daughter to be careful with her money. Tell her to plan her study programme wisely.

Q: My mother is very miserable. My dad just ignores. I am sorry for her as I think that she will have a heart attack soon. Can I get her some help?

A: Encourage your mother to eat healthily and exercise. You can start to do the exercises with your mother. Pray for her as you seek to help her.
