How can I help my 9 year old do classwork?
He, for the first time, has said almost daily that he hates school! He is not the only one! I have found that many of the boys in the class are in the same boat. There are only 8 kids in his classroom so I find it inexcusable that she cannot mix it up and try new things.
Rewards and consequences have not worked for my son. Some days, he has a terrible day at school and then we struggle through hours of work. Not because it is difficult, but because he doesn't want to do it. Some of it is quite easy!
I also work at this small school so I am asking for advice and ideas on how to help him to survive the school year. You may think that surviving the year is not the way to go but there is not enough space to give all the details. He will not go to this school next year if something does not change so yes, we need to survive the remainder of the year.
I appreciate any ideas!
