Chances are, if you are the parent of a diffcult child, you have already discovered that textbook teaching methods just do not work for your child. Whether it is a sensory issue, motor skill problem, inability to comprehend or just a plain old bad attitude, homeschooling a difficult child can be a little....well........difficult.
This week we will begin a series of posts focused on Teaching the Difficult Child. Each week, a new post will give you ideas for teaching your child without the use of textbooks and workbooks. If your homeschooling has become a burden and your relationship with your child becomes strained during "school time", I challenge you to think outside the box! Put away his workbooks and try engaging him with hands-on, real life fun! You will be amazed how fast they can learn and how much they will retain when they are engaged and having fun! I will be sharing many of my own ideas, as well as ideas from other mothers like ourselves. I am very excited at the thought of learning from all of you as well!
Check back on Thursday and read: Learning to Tell Time. I'll be sharing some fun ideas for teaching time without workbooks, writing or tears! I hope to hear your ideas as well!
Show me your ways, O Lord,
teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
