my ds is 14 and he just, i cant say refused to do his school work, if i stay on him or work with him, he will do it, but getting him to do it on his own, not going to happen. He loves his hand held game things. He loves to make things out of paper, glue, tape and cardboard. He is working on with alpha and omega 7th grade. I'm tempted to just let him keep working at his own pace, maybe push him a little. I've made a schedule of what he is to do each day, doesn't get done. I even put each page that needed to be done into zip lock baggies with the day of the week written on them and changed them out when the work was done, but nothing helps. I am tempted to just let him take the summer off and maybe read. He's got some trips planned with our church, a mission trip, a lock-in, and camp for a week. The last year has been hard on all of us, there was a divorce, a move and we didn't get our books till Feb.
am i being crazy?
what would you more experienced homeschooling moms do?
