@Scott - remember this a forum where you can ask questions and get answers on your specific "issue" - there is no need to spam him with links to other posts and remember he is 11 years old and you are midt 20's.

And it's also a forum where you can tell people to use the search function/a bit of common sense.

Set smaller goals, seriously. Baby steps.

It's hardly spam, he might find good info on improving. But there's a search function and also google where he could find information on chess coaching I'm sure.

Honestly if you have to ask questions like this you'll never be a grandmaster. It makes me cringe how many people ask how they can be a grandmaster, it's an unrealistic target.

agreed, learn to walk before you can run.

There is a difference between discouraging remarks and realistics ones. Really. Why is the GM title so important to you? Why isn't simply becoming a better chess player not enough? If you work hard enough, the titles will show up on their own accord.
