This is vacation week here. Thought the first few days went good. Although I worked til noon all three of those days. difficult child has such trouble with friends. He has been home everyday, with nobody to play with. Finally yesterday he had a boy over, played games and went to a movie. Woke up on a bad note today. Went directly in to play the online game I dispise. Spends sooo many hours doing that. Then I told him, 30 minutes and I want you to do some homework. OK..he says. Well, it was a nightmare. Two hours of fighting. He just pushes my buttons and I lost it. Read a pamphlet, fill in the blanks. Can't do it. I started reading it..he didn't even have the right answers. Looked like he just guessed. So, I made him read it. What a disaster. Then when he did fill in the blanks the penmanship and spelling was so bad I couldn't make out the words. Made him cross it off and spell correctly. That was a fight. I just lost it. Told him he MUST spell correctly AND write where someone can read it. He says, the teacher doesn't care. He was crying, didn't get anything done. a 30 minute assignment turned into three hours of fighting. Just awful. Now, I am afraid to ask him to do his other subject assignment.
