I want to write an update for you homeschooling mamas with little ones. It can be a struggle but there IS light at the end of the tunnle!
UPDATE: My boys are almost 14 and 16 now and reading and multiplication is far behind them. I'd like to say "that is the least of my worries" but to be honest, I don't have any worries! Amen!
All of this to "show and tell," there IS HOPE! Homeschooling parent, I want to encourage you. You ARE doing the right thing. All of your hard work, prayers, and time will pay off and probably already has even if you are not aware of it. Blessings abound! Easier days are ahead.
I'd love to encourage you! Leave me a comment or send me an email. :) Janet ♥
At one point Espresso had trouble reading well. I started to sweat it and get worried. My husband and other homeschoolers encouraged me to just hang in there. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and hang in there he'll catch on; AND he did!!
About 2 years later Double Espresso wasn't grasping multiplication. After hanging in there with Espresso, I knew that eventually, Double Espresso would catch on. Sure enough, it was like a light switch was flipped and he caught on.
Sometimes, it is a matter of maturity. Sometimes it is a matter of learning styles. Sometimes it is a matter of giftedness. You may even want to take a break for a little while. Eventually, something will click and your child will "get it".
If your child is having trouble in a certain area, maybe we can help give you a fresh perspective!
