johnandtinagilbert Posted January 26, 2011 Share Posted January 26, 2011 YES!!!!!! As much as I'd love for my oldest to work more independently....it's just not him. He learns best w/ interaction, discussion. Programs that teach to the student and only expects the parent to check over answers and make sure it's getting done, don't go over so well with him. When I read posts that say "My kid just loves to take his workbook and go off and get it done. I think "WOW." Not my kid. He would never get anything done and if he did, he wouldn't retain it without discussion. Time to press play....... I hear that. Of my 3 Elders, only one of them is an independent worker. Both boys NEED me to follow up and really be on top of them or their work will not get done. My daughter gets her instruction and is off to the races....she's my favorite. (kidding).
