New to group and new to home school. Need encouragement!
This will be our first year home schooling our children ages 8 and 6. I was very excited about this and feeling confident until the last few days. I've been doing a bit of a trial run during the summer doing some summer workbooks, and finding it difficult. My 8 year old is going into the third grade and I"m having a hard time getting any work from him. He's a very smart boy, but full of excuses. How do you get your little one motivated to do the school work. It's a lot easier for him to make excuses with mommy than it was for a teacher in the classroom. I'm nervous that I may have bit off more than I can chew with him. Need some encouragement! :)
