I'm not going to let him get up after 5 minutes of him doing absolutely nothing. It's not just him sitting there staring at the page. As I said, I'm sitting there next to him encouraging him to keep going. This doesn't mean I sit there and tell him "Do your work" every 5 mins. I try to engage him in actually doing his work.
