Eliminating the Family Struggle over Creative Writing
So.....Grandma has been in charge of their Creative Writing for the past few years BUT it is becoming an issue trying to get the boys to work! Grandma lives 6 hours away, she is not here on a daily basis for help and you can only do so much via telephone. That leaves the struggle of making the learn to me and then it becomes a 3 way fight. Boys do not want to do it, they do not want to fight with Grandma so they fight with me and then I get to deal with my Mom. This year, we decided to get Creative Writing Help! No more fighting amongst ourselves, we are getting online help via Time4Writing! The teachers THERE can evaluate and help the boys and therefore eliminate the family struggle!LOL I am really looking forward to an easier year, an easier day and no issues. Yes, they will still whine and moan about doing it. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be kids!LOL BUT, it is not an issue between my kids and myself or myself and my Mom or my kids and my Mom. No more listening to Grandma complain because of how they have not done a great job or the boys complaining because the do not understand the work. YEAH!!! I do not know who is more thrilled...ME, the BOYS or my MOM!!LOL I will keep you posted on how it works out!
