Anyone else dealing with an obstinate student?
Hi, I'll drop in since I've been lurking...I have a DS - 1st grade with ADHD and a SHORT attention span, DD who's 4 and does some pre-k stuff when she wants to - she loves to learn...then a 3 year old and 1 year old. We use a computer based program b/c my DS is obstinate about doing school 3boys_mom...that way he can argue with the computer but it backs me up and won't let him move forward until he's learned it...he argues less with me...we've been using www.time4learning.com which he loves...we may try www.k5learning.com to see which works best and when he's old enough we may try Switched on Schoolhouse...
