Hi, my name is Anna. I'm new here, but not new to homeschooling. Right now, I'm homeschooling my 11 year old who has some learning issues. Actually, I think dyslexia and possibly ADHD are his issues. I'm not getting him tested because I'm trying some natural solutions that he doesn't need testing for me to do. I'm making sure he eats well. That's hard some days because he frankly doesn't like to eat enough to fill him up. He gets bored. So I'm making sure his food is high in good fats as well as nutrition. Of course we are taking things at his pace, using all the tricks in my book, plus teaching him organizational skills because that seems to be the key. He forgets to do steps in problems that has more than one step.
Honestly, I know what to do. But we are having a rough day today with tears on both of our parts. Learning grammar just isn't fun today. And neither is math. Or having to deal with each other. I sent him outside to play for a while, and decided to come here to vent. I hope you don't mind because I know I'm new here and I hate it that my first post is a venting post. Deep breaths. I feel better now. Thanks. :)
