Imagine two 12-13 years old brothers. One of them will have an exam the next day and the other one has lots of free time and feels bored. This is why he goes to his brother and starts to talk to him. Their mother notices that the free brother is bothering his brother and decides to ask her free son not to distract his brother. She tends to say: "Don't bother him to this great extent." I was wondering if someone could tell me which one of the following choices fits better in my self-made sentence below:
Don't talk to him ..... much Jim. He has an important exam tomorrow.
For me, they both mean the same here.
