I want to start this off as saying, that I really love my daughter and I do enjoy her company. I know it doesn't seem that way with how much I complain in here about her,lol. It's just you guys are the only ones who understand. I've tried venting to my family about it and all I get is, "Then send her back to school." That's not what I want!
Okay, so the fist week was awful. I figured that I started her too soon and she needs more time to unschool. With our new schedule she can sleep as late as wants but she has to spend at least 5 hours with the family/pursuing her interests (No electronics except for documentaries, ect) Well, she gets up early but that's about it. Instead of doing something productive, she just spends her time wandering around and doing her chores sloowwly to eat up more time.
I bought her a perfume making kit. Hasn't touched it. I suggested training the dogs, not interested. Help her brother with his science project, spiders are gross. So I took her to the library. I asked her to pick some books that look interesting. I swear she kept her eyes closed the entire time because she came back with three books, Ethiopia, birds and slugs. Really? I asked her if she really liked these books. "Uh huh." After 5 mins of looking at the pictures she admitted they were boring.
I explained that if she doesn't figure out what she likes, I won't know what to teach her. School is much funner when you lean about things that interest you.
Help! What else can I do??
