Homeschooling Patience — 4 Comments

  1. I LOVE that you address this. I am really not the most patient person in the world, I have to work at it usually. It helps when you can put yourself in the child’s shoes … My 7 year old has a lot of problems with math and I always have as well, it just takes me longer than I think it should, with that in mind when she gets frustrated instead of getting frustrated with her I tell her that we both just have to work on it and we’re in it together. My 10yo son has ADHD and that can be really trying but after asking him what his definition of ADHD was we came up with a way to help everyone relax a little (definition was “something something high definition” lol) now we just tell him to turn down his high definition and everyone giggles a bit and relaxes!
