I guess my main concern is that things so far at school have come very easy for him without trying and as with sports I can see a problem in the future when the school work becomes harder he won't know how to cope.
Just to let you know that he does want to make the travel hockey team very badly but despite that fact he won't put any effort into the task. Being good at something without putting any effort into the activity is not going to get him very far in life regardless if it is a sport or school work.
His entire personality is very layed back, he moves at one speed; slow, despite any time restraints. I am probably making to much of this but I do believe a good work ethic will get him far in this world and I don't think 7 is too earily to start but my efforts so far are not getting us anywhere. Chores are a big chore to get him to complete.
He is a wonderful loving child that any parent would love to parent. I just want to avoid major problems in the future.
