Distance learning should be getting easier for us. It’s been over 365 days since the kids have been full time. You’d think we’d know how to do this type of thing painlessly. It’s not painless. It’s actually torture at this point for me to try to get the kids to do what they need to do when they need to do it.
Just today my daughter broke down in tears when she realized she had a bad grade in reading. It went straight to death and destruction instead of just being disappointed about the grade. The funniest thing was that her teacher just said that she’d take redos for her assignments and average the first grade and the second grade. For a kid who has been on honor roll the last two years this is her saving grace, but the depression she felt with her grades being down really was an overreaction.
How are your kiddos handling the stress of distance learning? I hope they aren’t going off the deep end when something doesn’t go just right.
