How can I help my 7 yr old explain things better?
His reading is excellent and when you ask him questions about the book, his comprehension is there. When you ask he to explain day to day occurrence in school he will get frustrated, and we are patient with him.
We tell him if its easier to just think about the subject and put it into words how he feels most comfortable explaining it.
Most time as a family it is almost like we are putting a puzzle together to get a cohesive explanation out of him. At school we have had no indication of any behavioral issues.
Once he gets home, we give him a little time to "decompress" and then off to homework. If he doesn't understand the homework, he get so frustrated he pushes his books to the floor,and puts his head down.
We do not yell at him and try to encourage him as best as possible, however, I am certain he is picking up on our frustration no matter how much we try to hide it.
If anyone could give me any insight as to which way to turn for help in understanding my sons situation and helping him "deal" with matter which is best for him, I would be so appreciative...
Thank you in advance...
