brownie Posted August 31, 2012 Share Posted August 31, 2012 I just spent half an hour dragging my 11 year old through a math problem that should have been easy. He was disrespectful the entire time and making ridiculous repeated errors because he had given up. Then my 7 year old burst into tears because I wouldn't repeat the rule for the spelling lesson in the middle of the quiz. We've spent 3 weeks working on this word list and I just can't teach him to spell. He can't remember how to spell "ch" despite the fact that he decodes at a 5th grade level. That was all after my bathroom sink started leaking into my basement so by the time we started school it was 10:30, and I had to call a plumber because I can't possibly look at the problem AND teach school. I threatened to drive them all back to public school immediately and I am sitting here crying while they are in their rooms. School is a disaster and it's week 1. Now it's 11:30 and I have 1 kid through 1 subject and a 2nd through 1/2 a subject. Brownie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
