On nights like these, I always welcome the time when my children go to bed. It's quiet time for me. Tonight was frustrating as always when my son needs help with homework. It takes a lot of energy and patience for me to get through helping him with his homework. I don't understand why it literally takes him a long time to finish up an assignment and then to have to correct the same assignment the next day at home. I know he is very smart and can do his homework, but I am not sure why he is doing this. I feel that he isn't really paying attention to his work, nor cares about doing well. I want him to do well and succeed, but right now his grades are at C's. He knows I would like them to be at A's or at least B's. I know he struggles with certain subjects at school, such as writing and comprehension, but right now he is even struggling at math and that his is best subject. Last year he struggled with the third grade with low grades and it keeps continuing to be that low grades for this year. I guess I am asking for suggestions, because I am running out of ideas on how to help him succeed and it really stresses me out and it makes me feel that I am doing something wrong as a mother. I am feeling discouraged and need strength.
