Someone, anyone…can you please explain to me why my 8 yr old plays clueless when it comes to his spelling homework? All he has to do is put 12 words in alphabetical order and then write 5 sentences. But, it never fails that he goes into a whining meltdown…”I can’t do it. Can’t you please help? wah wah wah” I love him but he is driving me insane!

*The boy that took 45 minutes to alphabetize the first 8 words finished the last 4 in 3 minutes when I finally threatened him with early bed times if he didn’t finish asap.

    Let’s try this again. 🙂 I am glad to know I am not alone when dealing with an 8 year old who is trying to perfect the art of cluelessness when it comes to home

    I can not speak to this subject. We had a blowup over homework tonight and I am saying “ARRRRGGGHHHHHH” myself.

    I like the idea of a threat 🙂

    Ummm…I’m afraid. I am very afraid. The kid starts Kindy this year. Is this what I have to look forward to in a few years? 🙂
