Ok I am helping my 8 yr. old son (3rd. grader) on Reading Comprehension and then answer question to see how much he remembers. Well here I thought he was doing great I mean he is not that great of a reader but he tries so hard and I help him through it. Like maybe say it for him after he has tried to so many times.
But I want him to do this completely alone it's not that I don't want to help him but I need him to understand it himself not come to me for everylittle obstacle. I mean he comes back to ask me common sense stuff of the story. I am getting so frustrated with him. It seems like my dh has to straighten him out then he seems to do alot better I mean sometimes he gets scolded and spanked and it works.
With me it's more like layed back and comfortable I don't want that from him I want him to get after it the way he does with his dad. What else can I do?
I am home allday so I got the time. Help and thanks
