Nixing the Home school Fits....

If you home school I'm sure you deal
with bad attitudes... At least I do!

Maybe even with a child who just won't do the work or even try without letting you know it's the last thing on earth they want to be doing.
This year my 1st grader is not a schooling kind of boy. He would rather be digging in the dirt, playing with "guys", playing legos, or practically ANYTHING else besides doing school. I don't blame him he's only 6. The pathetic side of it is right now I'm only requiring 3 subjects out of him. Reading, Writing, and Math. On good days he can sit down and do his work in less than an hour.
On bad days...... that's another story!!!!
Here's what I've found is working for us.
When he starts with his whining and I can tell he's not trying. I simply walk away calmly and without fighting. Then I just go about my business with the other kids or what ever I have going on.

I make it clear to him that I will gladly teach him and help him but only if he wants to learn. I let him know that it is FINE with me if he sits there ALL DAY. Just let me know when you're ready to learn and do your work. Otherwise you can just sit in the chair ALL DAY. So far within 10 minutes or so he calls me back and is ready to do the work. A couple of times I've had to leave a 2nd time. But when I do this he has a better ready to learn attitude and I don't have to battle with him at all.
I'm sure there are kids out there that this approach wouldn't work for but so far it's working for us. It also keeps my attitude under control. No yelling or getting mad. I just don't have time to teach a kid that doesn't want taught. Hopefully this will continue to work and maybe even start to prevent all fits. We'll see!!!
If your kids go to public school,
I'm sure you could use this approach for home work too, if needed.
So what works for you when those nasty fits surface???

Can't wait to read your ideas when I
return from vacation on Friday!
See you then!

Meal Plan Monday

Here's our Camping Edition of
Menu Planning!
As you might know we're camping this week
Here's a run down of meals we have planned...

I'm not listing days because
we're on a day by day plan!!

** Tin Foil Dinners with Ribeye Burgers, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, and zucchini

** Chicken over the fire with potatoes

** Bean Stew -- consists of bacon, Van Camps beans, and hamburger simmered over the fire for hours!

** Beef Stew -- Consists of beef stew meat, carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, tomato soup, water, cornstarch (to thicken). cooked over the fire for several hours. This is sooooo good, I can almost taste it now!

** Camper pizzas (lunch)

** Hamburgers and hot dogs (not camping without these!)

** We'll be dining out 2 nights

Also we can't be camping with out some
YUMMY desserts

** We're planning 3 freezers of Homemade Icecream!!! (I'm an icecream lover!!)
** Camper Pudgy Pies with chocolate chips and marshmallows or Raspberry pie filling!
** And of course S'Mores! It works really well to use the chocolate covered graham crackers instead of an actual candy bar. Of course if you want more chocolate you might want to use the traditional method!

Hope you all have a great week!!
