I seldom agree with other people, but today they are right. No need to push your kid so much. He/she may lose motivation in the end, just because the pace is too quick, and fail the finals. So why don't you just celebrate the birthday for a day as other people do and then ask your kid to study argumentative topics
? You know, sometimes a wish to graduate fast comes when a student has difficulties in it, but feels shy to tell you.
