Step 1: DD and I read through the lesson
Step 2: DD insists that she totally understands it and needs zero help from me
Step 3: DD proceeds to do it incorrectly
Step 4: DD cries
Step 5: I humbly suggest that I might help her by walking her through a problem
Step 6: Halfway through the problem she insists that she now understands and does not need my help
Step 7: Either she indeed understands it and goes on to finish the lesson, or she gets it wrong again and we repeat steps 4-6.
The good news is all of this fighting to do it independently means that when she gets it, she really does master it. It's just exhausting.
