Only A Homeschooler…

only-a-homeschoolerI got up this morning and was making coffee. My 9-year-old son was sitting there, doing nothing. “How come you’re not doing your math?”

“I finished it at 3 o’clock this morning.”

“What?! Did you go back to bed?”


“Did you go back to sleep again?”

“Yes.” His eyes glazed over as he stared at the floor.

“Don’t do that any more,” I said.

    Oh my! I know this post is over a year old but bless his little heart. Does he make a habit of burning the midnight oil?

    Hey Susan, does your son still hate math? What did you do, or are doing, to resolve this? My son avoids math, trying every way imaginable to get out of doing it every day. I understand the distaste, but it has to get done.

      Ever since I switched to Teaching Textbooks, math hasn’t been so much of a struggle because the computer program is like a cartoon, and it can explain any math problem that he doesn’t understand.

        Ahh yes, I switched over to teaching textbooks in grade10, and math time was much more enjoyable.I would definitely recommend it, at least in the older grades.
