I am NOT a teacher and so Thankful for teachers

Monday, October 26, 2020

Hey ya'll
I hope you are having a great day!
I am not a fan of online schooling, I am not a teacher and am SO thankful for all that are. I have a son that is ADD and has trouble staying focused on his school work. Likes to get on Roblox during school time. Even with me sitting right next to him at the table. HE HATES writing and refuses to do it. He says I need to make it more fun for him. Trying to make things more positive for him. HE thinks he stupid and I know he is super smart. I am trying to do my best and that is all I expect from him. Trying to keep him interested and doing subjects that are interesting to him. Whenever I tell him that he will need these skills... His replies I just want to be a Youtuber. Yes I explain why even his favorite YouTuber needs these skills.

ANY IDEAS I welcome them.

Sorry just needed to get that off my chest.

    Although you can't prove it by me, most people with ADD are highly intelligent. It took long into my adult years that I was able to curb my distractions. I'm still bad at doing too many projects at once, and do none of them well. My DIL uses me to help with decorating, but knows I need to switch often or I'll get bored.
