Karen in CO Posted August 3, 2008 Share Posted August 3, 2008 Grrr. That is all I have to say. Just Grrr. At least I am smiling, right? I need to unclench my jaw and take a deep breathe. I don't have to justify how I raise my kids. My mom spends about half the year with me. It is good for her and it is good for the kids, but it is hard for me after she has been here a few months. Take last week for instance. DD7 and I were doing math. She hates subtraction with borrowing right now. She does it well, but doesn't like it so we have been doing a lot of it. My mom's helpful comment, "If she doesn't want to do math with you, maybe she should try doing it in public school with everyone else. She will learn that it has to be done and that it isn't fun." My reply, "No, she doesn't need another teacher. She is doing great with math." My thoughts "Don't try to manipulate my child with empty threats like that. And don't tell her that math isn't fun!" There. I feel better now. Bean dip anyone? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
