Caleb hit a stumping point at age 4.. He was very stubborn and didn’t want to do much of anything related to school.
It was one reason why I questioned if Id even be able to home school – Im sure friends of mine who knew my struggle can remember the conversations and frustration I had…
I thought it was just Caleb – until recently… now that Taite is 4 – and Im seeing some of the same things in Taite – that I saw in Caleb at this point.
Its hard to get Taite to participate in our schooling right now.
He does some – but it can be very difficult!
Ive heard from his pre-school teacher (he goes to a private pre-school 2 days a week) – that he many times refuses to do the crafts… he just simply says “I don’t want to” – and has no interested in them what so ever.
Hes never really ugly about it with me – he just isn’t into it.
Im not pushing it – but I recently have been making him do some seat work with Caleb.
Theres no reason why he can’t.
It just may take a little pushing 🙂
– and the difference this time, he has Caleb as his inspiration – and not just his mom saying “you need to do this” – seeing his older brother do it, is cool… and I think will be an encouragement to him over time to do well.
He looks cute concentrating doesn’t he? 🙂
