4 year old frustrations!

Hello All,

     So school has been over for a week and as much as I wanted school to be over I am missing my 4 year olds. What makes it worse is that I am trying to enjoy my own 4 year old! He is a young 4 so I am starting with him where I normally start my school year. I just got finished with such a group of smarties that I am having a hard time not getting frustrated with him. Am I the only one who gets this way? Plus, I guess because he is my own he doesn't want to learn with me. This makes me wonder how Mom's manage to homeschool, I know I could never do it myself. The more power to everyone who educates, whether at home or at school. Have a fantastic weekend!

  1. I totally get where you are coming from. My own kids were (and still are) very tough to teach. I could NEVER homeschool!! The kids see mom & teacher as such different people and they play such different roles in their lives I can understand why they can be that way. My youngest, who will be 13 in August, was having problems in 6th grade literacy - mainly writing - and it ended up being so frustrating for all of us that I asked his 6th grade teacher for a tutor suggestion. The recommended person happened to be the teacher he had for 3rd grade and it worked out soooo much better than trying to deal with us at home. Dad & I are math/science people...not literacy! Anyway, the tutor told me her 5th grader was getting tutored cause her daughter was the same way!! So no worries!!
