For the last few several weeks, my son has been sinking in homework! He’s in second-grade. As you may know, he has dyslexia and ADHD. But, his “disabilities” are not the issue. As a point in reality, our focused treatments and his effort have put him near “grade-level.” He dislikes composing (the procedure of developing characters, not composition). Otherwise, he’s advancing perfectly.
Nonetheless, he’s sinking in preparation.
This previous end of the week, he had a three-day end of the week. (In concept, anyway.) We invested three times every day on preparation. By Weekend mid-day, I was creeping out of my skin! I was thinking, “Geez! I am expected to help other parent AVOID this mess! What guidance do I give others that I am not getting for myself?”
I basically got my “bad blood study guide for Parents!” CDs and look through the desk of material. This is not the new I have done this. Couple of years back again; when my son was in pre-school, I had to re-orient myself with all of the training I discovered over many years as an in-home teacher and preparation tutor.
I am satisfied to say that I recognized our troublesome places and fixed course. I discovered my “Night before University Tool” and “Chip Video Program.” Factors started to hum again.
Perhaps it would perform now, too. I ran through the record of subjects on the CDs. I psychologically examined each one off of the record. “We are doing that…and that…and that…” I was thinking.
“So, what am I missing?” I was thinking to myself. Mother or father Shame is an unpleasant factor for all of us, but this was more than just Mother or father Shame. Since this is what I do for an income, Expert Shame set in I you waste your time in games.
I WAS SUDDENLY STRUCK BY A LIGHTNING BOLT OF THE OBVIOUS…
I have been training parent and learners through preparation for over 15 years and have verbal with thousands of parents about preparation fights. I can usually trouble-shoot any preparation issue, provided that parent *really* wants to remove it. “Too much homework” is the hardest issue to solve!
THERE ARE ALWAYS TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY
I must tell you, when I was a class room teacher, I had NO WAY of understanding if the amount of work was too much! I allocated what I *thought* was affordable. The preparation basically returned again university, finish and precise.
