We had one day of like 85 degrees, then the cold front came through and knocked it back to the 30/40 range where it has been ever since. I've got a 6 year old that has been stuck inside far too often this winter, even on nice days where I can take him fishing or just for a walk in the woods he is hyper just like his dad. This has become almost an experiment in slow torture for both of us. I homeschool him so we are nearly constantly together anyway since his mom hasn't been heard from in over 7 months now. Thankfully I have internet and can at least talk to adults online or I'd prolly be in a padded room by now lol.

We had high winds with icy sleet pellets before it turned into snow. Lost a couple shingles on a brand new roof. And the satellite dish was blown from it's position so there went the cable TV. Thank goodness the internet cables are buried. I homeschooled my older son for two years. It wasn't easy so kudos to you. Although I was dealing with a squirrelly boy with ADD. :)

Dang our storm was disappointing, I saw tornado chasers in town that day but nothing kicked off around me. I've found the key to teaching is to stop when they get bored even if it's after just 10 minutes. When you force anybody to do something they resent it and want to rebel against it, just human nature really. If you keep it fun with a lot of positive reinforcement you might luck out and end up with a kid who loves to learn like my daughter. My son is opposite her in most ways, she was such a shy quite little thing. My son is usually the loud center of attention that can't sit still. Sometimes I wish he was the one I had really young lol!

Yeah, I taught in short sessions with breaks. I had decided to homeschool him because each night after school I was re-teaching him everything he needed to know just to be able to do his homework. And I realized how much he was struggling just to keep up. After 2 years he was itching to be with other kids. So he went back to the public school.

They have a lot of homeschool activities here, he's only 6 and I plan to have him in martial arts soon. I was in something called independent studies in California and I thrived. In elementary school I was in all advanced classes because it was a small nice environment to learn in for me. Then I hit jr high and was in the first class ever over 2000 kids, the school was pretty big, lots of gang activity, I was unprepared and only the fact that my dad coached a lot of the new gangbangers in soccer when we were little saved my ass lol. My grades fell, my behaviour was horrible, I started smoking weed. Independent studies saved me, one hour a week for tests and getting next weeks work and you were free. I was working at 14 and driving a 65 mustang that I'd paid off at 16.

It wasn't until I moved to the midwest where the programs don't exist like that I had trouble again. I'd been working construction for cash most of my days and they stuck me back in a classroom in a tiny midwestern town. Only jobs they had around was bucking hay for hardly any money and I actually kicked rocks into piles once for a farmer and chased down his golfballs for 5 bucks an hour lmao!

I had such a bad experience with the schools here, they literally accused me of starting a skin head gang fight when I had a broken leg and not racist like most people around here.! My daughter liked it until second grade, she is an old soul and I never talked to her like a kid. I think I should have more honestly but she liked adults more than kids. She asked to be homeschooled at that age so I had to do it with my history. She was easy though I just had to buy the books, I only take credit for things like her grammar and vocabulary, I taught her how to read and she has been teaching herself ever since. Hers was one of the only papers not flunked for poor grammar in her art history college class, she's 17, finally around people old enough to start matching her maturity.

Thing is kids are different, they don't all learn the same way and they want to learn about some things more than others and so on.. The school system is all about making them be the same and learn the same things. That puts some at a disadvantage, there aren't a lot of other options.
