OMG! DO YOUR MATH! Sit down! Stop wandering away! Don't just stare at the paper! Do the work so we can MOVE ON!
Ugh! I'm just so tired of it. I've tried to encourage, yell, bribe, do it with him, explain, explain, explain. Nothing is working. It's a beautiful day here today and I told him that we can go to the park if he works hard on math today. We have been doing math for TWO HOURS and aren't done. Nothing else is going to get done today.I've tried to let him sit wherever he wants in the house because I was thinking that he would work harder if he was more comfy. Nope he has to sit at the table and I have to be standing over him in order for math to get done.
He LOVES school if he doesn't have to do any work. When we are reading the history or science books he listens and school goes great. When he has to sit down and answer questions about what we read, or do his handwriting, or math that's when the whining starts.
This year has sucked so much that I wonder if I'm doing him a disservice and he should just be in public school. Sorry, I just needed to vent today.
