My friend's 11 year old son is going to take a entrance exam in junior high next year.
He has been studing for 3 years in a cram school.
Now he studies 4 times a week there.
On weekdays,5 hours and on saturday, more hours.
On top of that there are much homeworks.
He didn't look tired.
But his mom noticed his loss of hair around his hairline.
He must be stressful.
What a pity!
However he doesn't tend to retire.
I want to know other countries situations.
