    Default Stay On It

    Dear Teachers,

    a. I’m sorry to hear this is happening, glad to see you’re staying on it.
    - “you’re staying on it” means “you’re sticking to it”, right?

    b. You should take away things that make your son’s life easier, you see fit.
    - What does “you see fit” mean in this sentence?

    Thanks

    a. yes

    b. That should be "as you see fit" = "as you feel it is necessary or appropriate".
