Homework Hell

Uggghhhhhh...... Does anyone want to tutor my 4th grader in math?!?!! I am NOT the person to try and explain to her that some things in math (and school work in general) will NEVER change.

It is only Day 2 of her new school year and I'm struggling.
I'm sure it is a combination of her not knowing the stuff, her getting used to getting up early every morning and actually doing something other than watching Saddle Club, as well as her frustration.

This was another one of those "venting" moments.
I truly hope Delainey has a lightbulb go off this year and all of a sudden it just "clicks".


  1. So wish I was there to try to help. We'll chat and try to figure out some new ways of encouraging her in the areas of struggle.
    Love ya!

  2. Thanks so much!!! PJ and I have determined that it just probably can't be us to work on math and numbers with her.... she just shuts down and stops trying. It is really a difficult thing all the way around. I've got some ideas though!
