Last week, we had a REALLY bad day of homeschooling. It went something like this:
Me: Do your schoolwork.
MP: OKAY, OKAY, I AM!
Me: (Twenty minutes later) Why are you stirring your juice with your pencil? Get to work.
MP: Okay, okay, I AM!
Me: (FOUR hours later) You’ve only written TWO sentences? It’s been FOUR hours. Get to work.
MP: I AM, OKAY?
We finally finished at bedtime. This is the point where I renounced homeschooling and searched online for all private, Christian school in the surrounding area and did a cost analysis on each. Then I decided to give homeschooling another chance.
I was lamenting my day to a dear friend who insisted I come right over so she could give me this book:
Believe or not, it does not involve a lobotomy. Anyway, so far, so good. For the past two days, she’s been finished with schoolwork by NOON, has had a great attitude and is keeping her bedroom clean! And all with very little prompting from me. I highly recommend it.
Now if he would only write one for dogs!
