Is anyone else finding it hard to HS boys?

Posted by   + Show Post

My 9 year old has a horrible attention span(at least for school, if it's something HE wants to do, like building Legos he can concentrate) and guesses a lot on answers I think so he can just "get it over with". It's really starting to frustrate me.

Is it a boy thing, an age thing,or just us? I really need to figure out how to work with him as I am getting WAY too stressed and that leads to my yelling at him :-(

You might try looking at Andrew Pudewa's book  Teaching Boys and Other Children Who Would Rather Build Forts All Day. 

He has an interesting video on this, too.  I teach three boys, and I think his approach is a good one.
