I am always so shocked by what is expected of our children. Our children are not allowed to "have a childhood" anymore. It's just "work, work, work" like
my preemie says.
My boy is reading well and is growing, however is
attention span is poor and he is more interested in
playing than in anything else. He gets in trouble due to this. We have a meeting with his teacher next week.
It's funny when she tells me that other kids are writing sentences!!! I am not impressed. I used to teach first grade many years ago and it was during this time during their First Grade year that they started to write.
The amount of homework is also crazy. At this point we will just do what we can... it can get stressful not
to mention the fact that I feel bad that he is "worked
to death" all day and then has to come home to complete this packet of homework... ugh.
Another reason to go out and vote parents. We do need to vote for the most Education Friendly legislators.. we
also need to vote for the ones that will fund education as well!
