When My Child Resists Learning

My ten-year-old, already in tears and frustrated beyond belief, took the paper and tore it up.

“I don’t want to do this,” he said through gritted teeth.

Although my blood pressure was starting to spike, I said as calmly as I could, “That’s fine. If this seems too difficult today, you don’t have to do it. But you do have to do something productive. You cannot just go grab your iPad.”

More tears.

More frustration.

More feeling like I am failing as a homeschooling mom.

Why is it that when my child resists learning, it makes me feel like I have failed to teach?


Please join me today for the rest of this post at the 2 to 1 Conference.

I share my frustration with, and what I am learning about my child’s resistance to learning.
