At some point the teacher has an obligation to tell the person that they should not spend any more of the teacher's or dojo mates practice time on their problem.
It seems this would have to be a really hard thing to do as a sensei. I've never seen it happen (though I've only been training eight years, so that is hardly representative), but it seems that there are cases where it would not only be better for the dojo, but for the individual as well. In your years of teaching Chuck, have you ever had to do this? How did you handle it (if that's not too personal)?
