I have four children. They range from ages 9-15. I have it pretty easy most of the time. They are self-sufficient. They mostly do as they are told and we are having a period of everyone’s “got it” in their subjects.
In the past this was very rarely the case. I have two with learning disabilities and we had a long period of very difficult years. Reading was non-existent, math produced meltdowns, history and science?—haha!Needless to say we all had a big ol’ case of the I don’t wannas!
