difficult child agreed to do math tutoring this summer as part of his contract to return in the fall. It took 2 wks of phone-tag to get up with-the teacher (a new one who sounds peppy and happy, at least over the phone!) and we finally chose 3 days to do the tutoring, (Tue, Wed, Thur) 1 hr per day, to make the expected 20-hrs we need. I told difficult child tonight, and he threw a fit. I told him he had promised the teachers and signed the contract. He countered, "You bought a workbook and I only have to do 1 page per day!" Hmm. I thought we could do both. But he hasn't touched the workbook. Is the easiest solution just to return it? He is so set in his ways that that's the only way I can see this working.
