I have so much respect for home schooling moms. My oldest daughter, Aundrea, is in Kindergarten half day in the afternoon. I work with her in the morning on stuff she is doing in school to give her more time on the things she is learning. The school she goes to is awesome and so is her teacher. She has given us resources to help us work with our kids. Most days Aundrea is very engaged with what we are doing and eager to work on it..but this morning she was testing me. She wanted to go watch a movie. (i never let her watch a movie before school so i don't know where she got this idea i would this morning) so a little bribing went on. I told her if she does a good job reviewing her school work i would let her watch a movie. Well, she pulled a "I don't know this" whine, whine, whine and the slouching on the table like she had no back bone, pulling at her clothes like a bug crawled up her shirt, anything to distracted her from what she was supposed to be concentrating on. I was getting so frustrated because I know she knows everything we are working on, she did beautifully yesterday when we worked on it. How do you home schooling moms handle days like this? Of course, she did not get to watch the movie. I had her go to her room to get control of herself and to come back when she was ready to work. Well, I got busy with Cassie and other mommy duties and never got back to her school work. I hope tomorrow is a better day. We will see. Kevin comes home tomorrow morning so she will probably be distracted again. Anyway, any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading my frustration. Off to bed.
