This is a two part issue, and I am flummoxed at how to help my kiddo actually LIKE school. He hates it, feels he is forced to go and he doesn't want too BUT he knows he needs an education to get anywhere in life but just HATES school. He is smart so grades aren't really an issue, he just hates it...
How on earth can I get this kiddo to actually think positively about school instead of his attitude that he is basically being sent to prison every day.. LOL How?!?!?!?!? (he starts high school this year)
Second part, my oldest has to be home schooled (or online learning) due to medical issues (he is immune compromised due to a BMT) and wont be able to go to an actual school for about 6mo to a year. What the heck am I gonna do? I know my limitations and that much patience is not one of my stronger points. How would you go about homeschooling or supervising online learning?? I know he can keep up with his grade level, that is not an issue, but how would you deal with it?
My eldest is 15 going on 50, he is in the gifted/advanced placement program, the youngest is 14 and SHOULD be in the same program but due to boredom he checks out and doesn't turn in his homework and what he does turn in is half assed at best. No amount of nagging/grounding/taking things away works with him. Once he hits that level of boredom he only tries on tests, quizzes that is it. Homework and classwork are left in the dust.
He was evaluated in 8th grade and they figured him to be in the 98th percentile for learning and he SHOULD be in advanced stuff, but most schools have a GPA policy and if he doesn't make the GPA he wont be in them. No exceptions
