As usual im up late surfing the web,trying to find the magic potion that will make homeschooling more sucessful and less stressful for Carlee and I.I found some strategies im going to try.Here is the checklist we are going to implement starting monday.
use a timer for work if she completes the work with the alloted time she will be give n a star for each subject the stars can be turned in for various things including a treat,computer time,tv time ,weather permitting outside time etc
write her schedhule on a dry erase board or paper and let check it off as she goes
also im going to try positive behaviour on my part and hers.Its easy to get stuck into a routine of ugh this is tough she isnt cooperating just want to scream mode.I am her mom she is a blessing to me even if she does take an hour of redirecting for something that should have taken five minutes.Positive affirmations this will work out .In public school i hated not know what was going on .I love this privelege of being able to know she is okay and not being mistreated or lost on a bus til five pm. My child is one big ball of energy if taught to channel this energy into constructiveness sh e will and can be a great success in her life.After all isnt energy a big thing most of us would love to have more of.She has plenty of it .Tonight she asked me mommy do you have tons of energy like me .My response no not quite as much as you . B y teaching her that its not bad to have fire lit under her path i believe it will be good.kids today spend alot of time being sedentary im glad mine moves around.yes its frustrating at times to see her constantly fidget but bottom line is she is my child my gift from god of whom i wouldnt trade for the world on a silver platter.
