I have schooled my son at home since kindergarten (got kicked out because I wouldn't DRUG him). As you may have read from my posts, I've been working on his 9th grade curriculum for weeks now. Especially that home ec class has me doing a lot of research.
I'm stumped. I've had him doing basic math this week to get his mind working and he takes over an hour to do ONE page of simple division problems. He's always gotten bored easily, has a mind that can memorize anything about movies and videos and books, but can't understand math. He craves structure, but it bores him, making him very hyperactive.
And yes, he gets socialization. (I hate that question). There are lots of kids in this neighborhood. We go to the library once a week; same with the farmers market when it's open. Going to a local fair this weekend.
He's getting turned off from learning, which is something I don't want. I need help figuring out how to get him "high school credits" while unschooling. AND have fun learning again.
Any unschoolers out there willing to give a little advice?
(We're in Colorado.)
Yet another delay - I honestly started back on my writing, while preparing to get the house ready to sell and monitoring my son's epilepsy ... then it happened. Another lump ...
