Lots of boys Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 Hi, this is my 2nd year homeshooling. We pulled my son from ps after going through K and 1. He is now in 3rd and I just feel like I am failing him. He is so hard to teach and I feel like I am frustrated with him all day long. He is a wonderful boy but he moves and talks constantly all day. He can't hold his concentration on any type of school work for more than 1 minute - seriously. It doesn't really matter what we are working on - he can't seem to focus on anything. Math is the worst. He takes an hour to get through four or five subraction quesitons. If I leave his side for a second he stares off into space or hums, sings, whatever else he wants to do. Even when he is reading outloud he has trouble staying focused enough to finish a sentence (he is a good reader otherwise). He is really, really distracting whenever we work in a group with his brothers and it is really, really difficult to do our subjects that we try to do together (history, science etc.). I just don't know what to do anymore. He is so smart, funny,etc. and I feel like I am frustrated with him a lot. I don't want this to hurt our relationship and I want him to be successful in his academics. How can I help him and our homeschooling atmosphere?
