I don’t know if it’s just because she was off for a week, or if its just the Monday blues, but it has not been fun trying to get my daughter to do school work today.
Math is one of her favorite subjects, and yet it’s taken us four hours to do four work sheets…and she still hasn’t even completed the third one.
I ended up just having to put up the workbook and tell her to just stop. The fact that she needs help with “9+7” really irritates me, and it seems like no matter how many times I tell her to use her fingers or draw a picture, or whatever else she wants to do to solve it, she won’t. She’d rather just stare at the page than attempt to finish her schoolwork.
She even went and hid in the bathroom closet because she “wanted to be away from me.”
I’m stressed out, I don’t know what to do anymore.
It’s like this every day, no matter what subject we’re working on.
Is it me? Am I just not good at teaching her? My brother doesn’t have these problems when she’s with him, so why is it that when she’s home, she won’t do her work without a day-long fight?
I’m stressed out, and I’m ready to give up, but I hate the schools here, and I refuse to put her back in one, but I don’t know what else to try.
