*SIGH*…Yes we are there! We (my hubby & I) stood up with Yaya until about 11pm maybe even later. This is REDICULOS! We’ve been having such a hard time with her and her homework this school year. We have been to school a few times already to help and talk with teachers. This ongoing struggle with homework is just really getting so tiring. There are quite a few things that have contributed to this struggle, but when is it ENOUGH?! We’re getting tired and so is she!
The Math, ok…we have always known she struggled in that area. But, when every other subject that she used to get A’s and B’s in is going downhill…that’s just CRAZY! She has been so unmotivated it’s not even funny. She seriously does not do well with change! L (I will get into that in another post!)
Yaya, had a very thin book to read about slavery that she had to write a paragraph about. Since she did not want to write the paragraph, she took FOREVERRR to read this little book. She’s good with reading, but she just did not want to do the work. So, we (hubby & I) sat down and told her to read it to us to help motivate her. That helped for a little bit, but she kept talking so much in between that she was getting tired. SMH… So, I offered to read the other ½ of the book to her. Hey! Whatever will help, right?! Ok…after forever we finished the book and on to writing the paragraph. She still talked, but it done finally…I think it was maybe around 9pm when she supposedly started around 5pm. SMH…
Math homework…hubby helped her with that! It was finished maybe around 9:45 – 10pm. Tell me WHY she waited to tell us last minute that she also had a vocabulary packet to finish or do because she was supposed to do it in class and never did and it was now due in the morning! O_O ARE YOU CRAZY KID?!!! *SIGH*……… So here we are tired, upset, aggravated etc… WOOSAA!!! Ok...fine...whatever...let’s do this!
Slavery book, paragraph, 2 math sheets and 12 vocabulary pages from the packet later O_O, yes you read right! 11pm still tired, even more upset, and aggravated, everyone finally to bed. Morning - CRANKY KID!
THIS WILL “NOT” BE HAPPENING EVER AGAIN!!!
