I am brand new to this team and just read your posting. To me I question the teacher's ability--your son's learning style may not be one that this teacher is capable of working with. It would be an idea to find out if there is another teacher available to transfer your son to. This situation will require your total attention and commitment. Another thing I would do is talk with your son's doctor and find out the resources available to help you combat this situation. Teachers have too much power if we let them, and they can hold back a child in many ways.

Please keep me posted and I will be praying for you and your son.

And the teachers never warned you that those grades were coming??? That seems crazy that they would not have tried to call you or anything.

You're right and I call myself staying on top of it....homework as soon as they walk thru the door....no tv or video games through out the week....unlimited weekend play.....but I think I will talk to the teachers about emailing me the homework I never thought of that....My son came home with 4 F's I was mortified to say the least.....

Routine and discipline are key now. I make my kids do their homework first thing when they get home. If he is telling you he has no homework, work it out with the teachers that they e-mail the homework to you. I am a pretty strict mom. No video games and computer except for homework during the week at all.

That's good to hear Enjoyinglife.....I on the other hand am having a problem with one of my sons the older one he came home with his progress report and it was terrible....so terrible that he should be ashame to show it to anyone.......He's just not doing the work and I told him if he gets held back to the eight grade again it's all on him....then I took his phone and tv and ipod and gave them away......I'm really ticked off

Homework is driving me crazy... not mine, the seventh grader's. How is it that no matter how much or little homework she gets it takes her four hours? It's like the work expands to fill the time no matter what, and we can't go anywhere or do anything because she doesn't finish. Ugh!

Tomsjoan and Healthyotter, you guys make my juggling act feel like a cake walk. *blink* I hope the rest of your week goes well and that you transition back into the educational conundrum without too much stress.

Don't forget to take a little time for yourselves. Just a little mind you, it's great for the sanity!

Tomsjoan, I can relate to feeling split in half. I teach at community college and we started back yesterday. I teach an online class to flex my schedule so I can be home when kids arrive from school. 3 kids are ADHD and bipolar, so parental supervision is important. Of course, my division schedules a faculty meetings at 3:30, smack dab in the middle of kids getting home! Worse, the meeting was to pick job candidates for a full time position I'll be working with closely. Do what you can, right?

Started class myself today. I teach a trauma class to nurses (actually 2 different courses) each twice a year. I had all my students in class today, and I kept thinking that I was glad it wasnt' tomorrow as that is the day my youngest starts back--- with 1/2 day etc. and that would be like splitting myself in half trying to figure out what I really needed to do when!

I have a friend who is going through school to be a teacher. It's tough work, and you guys deserve a huge pat on the back and a great big round of applause. Being a teacher is a gift, and nowadays good teachers are oh so precious.

What age group(s) would you most like to teach?

I'm not terribly nervous about tomorrow's class. I love learning. Meeting new people is a bit stressful, but I've had this professor before. It's the Tuesday classes that have me worried. LOL But I researched my professors, and I'm fairly confident I've made a good choice.

Now, managing my time wisely for the next couple weeks...that's what has me nervous. emoticon

Long Island has cooled down considerably and I was able to drop my car off at the dealer for service and walk the two miles home. The guy asked if I needed a ride and I told him no thanks I was walking. He looked at me as if I was crazy. Big thing for me, the walk entailed passing two DD and I did not even get a cup of joe. Walked right on past.

Wow I've never had a child say that to me "You can't tell me what to do" so far so good I hope I never hear those words not sure what I would say back......

How is everyone today....the weather here in Chicago is decent and not as hot as it's been lately....still rather warm though...I'm getting lots of water in because of it....

If You're tired or starting over stop giving up

One of my triggers: you can't tell me what to do. I am your mother, you are my child. By definition, yes, I CAN tell you what to do! Mine are younger: 13, almost 11, 7. I imagine my comeback to "I know" would be "then why didn't you...."

The most annoying thing my son can say to me while we are arguing is "I know MOM" As if I am the idiot. Things were back to normal this morning. I want him to always know I love him so hugs and kisses are abundant in our house. May not always like them but that is a different story.

LMW, I've got 3 ADHD's. Oldest is also ODD and bipolar. Lots of emotions at times. My biggest challenge is cooling down after an argument. Within minutes, the kids are ready to move on; I'm still lamenting whatever happened.

I am sorry that had to happen to you! My son gives me a lot of heart ache but he never argues with me. He has been suffering with a migrane disorder as well as ADHD and ODD (oppositional defiance disorder). On top of that he is very unemotional. Sometimes I would love for him to argue but all he does is hmmmmphhhhh! That absolutely drives me nuts I would love for him to have a little emotions and express his feeling like he should.

had a huge argument with my son that left me hyperventilating. Does not happen very often and I guess that I just can't let things be, he is now just like me. At close to 17, I am hoping things change as he grows up more.
