Everest Academy AdministratorQuestion: What are different ways that moms handle a child who is being very negative about school and being very slow about getting it done or trying to get out of work? How do you encourage a child who fights instruction from mom because mom is who she is mostly around? And how can mom keep from getting sucked in to that negativity to bring it around to a positive, productive time and not take it personally?
Child 1 was easy and preferred for me to let her choose what she studied and she would work on it continuously in her room on her own. No arguments she just loved studying. Child 2, boy, totally different story! I have learned to adapt to what he is feeling more than me demanding him to do it or be grounded. Unschooling style with a twist of traditional subjects. This has saved me a lot of arguing and tears and me feeling like a failure.
