amo_mea_filiis. Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 Dd asked to sleep over a friend's house next weekend. I really, really want her to go, but I can't let her. :glare: Since we're having academic and hygiene refusal problems, I attached school and hygiene to the sleep over. She's behind by 10 lessons (LA, math, science), has an F in science, and was whining about brushing her teeth last night. Part of me wants to increase her time spent with this friend and have them study together (AFAIK, friend is doing well in school). But the other part wants dd to take some responsibility. What would you do? Friend aside- Is it wrong for me to "take over" her method of studying? I was thinking of making her flash cards and printing other worksheets related to the science topic. I've also been looking for experiments more closely related to the topic than the text gives. I took over math and she's doing much better. The problem we ran into is that the textbook and cyber lessons do not explain things well. Some topics had me confused to the point that I had to google and do some problems myself. If I study ahead of her in science, we may be able to get the same results. I have no intentions of homeschooling her this way. 90% of our curriculum will be done together, and since she's really lacking in basic skills, dd will be doing a lot of work with ds and I (but at a much faster rate).
