"Therefore, it is not recommended to teach difficult subjects like mathematics and physics on Thursdays because those subjects require a heavier load on the brain," he said.

The doctor said there are special conditions in school scheduling and that parents should know about them. Parents should also take a more active role in curriculum planning to cut down on excessive mental load on children.
