I can’t Attitude

You know what bothers me the most about homeschooling? The I can’t Attitude my son has sometimes. I think if he were in public school he would be in so much trouble all the time, teased, in the principles office etc. I can ask him what 2 + 2 is and he’ll answer without any hesitation, then 5 minutes later he can not tell me the answer. What is that? This morning we were doing a little review on math and he was doing great then all of the sudden I asked him what comes before 78 counting by 2’s and his brain was gone. The whining started and the “It’s too hard” attitude . What the heck is that? Or we will be reading and he’ll be doing great then all of the sudden he will look at the word “the” and say “run”. I don’t get it. Everyday I pray for patience with that. This morning I did not pray before we got started and it showed. I was so ticked off at him. But, by the grace of God we kissed and made up. And low and behold once he realized I was really mad…He was able to do the problem plus 4 more real easy. I don;t get it. I am going to have to do some research on this matter. I can not be the only one out there that goes through this. Am I?

    Oh, no, you are not alone. I know that my son doesn’t whine to his piano teacher, but he does to me. 🙁

    There are days we work on only internal thoughts and attitudes. No math gets done, no spelling, simply reasoning through a Scripture and praying and thinking. I have seen a big improvement. I think some of it is due to maturity, and some of it has to do with me not being so hard on him.

    I have no real answer, but I trust learning grace is an important part of school for both of us.
