So I'm out on the road with my husband as he is a trucker and I hardly ever get to see him. I left my dd with my mother. For months I have been showing my mother how to do the schooling. How to read the teacher books, how to find the correct worksheet pages in the workbooks. Everything you could think of. I even left a lesson guide for her. She calls me daily during school time upset because she doesn't understand anything and tells me that maybe putting dd back into public school would be better than this. I told her firmly no I am not. Do your best and when I get home I will cover the things you couldn't. I will be home Tuesday by the latest. By now she should have at least finished a three full chapters of science, social studies, reading/language arts. That hasn't been done. However they have covered over half dd's math lessons. Kinda thankful for that because dd gets math now. Yay for that. I know on the other subjects as soon as I get home we can knock it out but OMG. She has barely done any of the other subjects. I'm upset because I feel like I have wasted all this time teaching my mother to sub for me. She promised me she understood it. I'm just a little upset. I have learned my lesson. If I go anywhere with dh for long periods of time I will hire a tutor to come in.
The reason dd isn't with us is because dh's company will not allow anyone under the age of 13 on the truck plus there can only be two at a time period.
