I feel VERY blessed to have the privilege of staying home and running my photography business + homeschooling! Aiden has such a sweet and curious personality that drives his excitement to learn which makes teaching a breeze on most days.
But you guys, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns over here - yesterday morning was ROUGH! Aiden got frustrated while practicing his handwriting. He wasn’t writing the letter “S” correctly and I told him to trace the letter first on the worksheet to practice and then to write on his own “S”, which led to “you’re not teaching me right mom because you don’t want me to learn.” So I told him, “maybe you need a little bit of a break because that’s not true. I’m trying to help you.” Which of course led to, “you’re the meanest mom in the world” and him being sent to his room. He came out shortly after and apologized and completed his letters beautifully. I told him “I am so proud of you bud. You did an amazing job!” Aiden’s reply, “Mom next time, don’t help me because I do better without your help.” 😑😫
We are trying our best over here to find a balance between “mom” and “teacher” because I know he wouldn’t react that way if it was with someone else. Any mamas have any tips/suggestions to help us through this mom/teacher balance?!
PS. My baby looks so grown up here!😭
