So, difficult child is being 'homeschooled'. She attends a charter school that is taught online. She has teachers, etc. The only reason I'm doing this is because going to traditional school keeps her anxiety level at a constant high and then she spirals. But...I'm going to lose my mind. She depends on me way too much and I've never been quite able to nix that. I do make her do things for herself, but it's never without a battle. Now, she has to write a summary of a book. What you and I used to call a book report. She starts off with I don't know how to write a summary. easy child and I tell her what it is and she says that she knows that. So, fine...you know how to write a summary then. "NO, I DON'T! Everytime I wrote one last year, my teacher never liked it." Translation, her teacher had corrections. So, I told her to write it and I would review it with her. After 20 minutes of she can't write it because she doesn't know how, she finally starts to write it. She writes on paragraph that is supposed to be the summary for the entire book. Talk about brevity. Anyway, I asked questions like when, why, and what was the outcome (in relation to specific points in her paragraph). She gets angry and tells me I don't like it and she told me that she can't do this. Now she just walked in here and is crying and yelling saying that I won't help her. Without doing it for her, I do not know how to help her anymore. I've seen her write. I know what she is capable of. You know, I already went to school. I'm not writing it for her which is what she would love for me to do. She's a smart cookie. She just doesn't want to apply herself. Ever. We have so many episodes like this on a daily basis over schoolwork. I told her that education is a requirement, but homeschooling is a privilege and that she needs to do the work without a battle or she was going back to regular school. I did not sign up for this daily battle over doing her schoolwork. Ugh. If anyone has any ideas, let me know. Sending her back to regular school is really just trading one problem for another. But, I cannot do this anymore. I'm ready to rip my hair out. And hers, too.
