For those who might be wondering. My son came home from school the next day with all of his school work finished. Ditto for Thursday. Today he brought home some unfinished work. So the one hard day did not solve everything, but the pattern seems to indicate that this structure is right for helping my son face the things he needs to learn instead of avoiding via distraction.
Unfortunately spending so much energy on Tuesday afternoon meant I got nothing Done Wednesday. Add in a child diagnosed with strep throat, and my schedule was in pieces. I pulled it back together yesterday. Today was spent far away from my schedule as my parents were in town. Tomorrow is a house-focused day. Next week I have to put on my Graphic Designer hat a lot. Things need done. I’m hoping that I can get through next week without anyone staying home from school sick.
