Research shows that children are more successful in school and beyond if they are given a strong foundation in the earliest years of their lives. The problem with that now is it’s solely up to us to get it done since COVID. If you are like me you don’t have the patience to handle a school day with your kiddo. Them not being interested is normal hell you're not either so the feeling mutual 😝! Just keep in mind you will get it done to the best way you know how and they’ll pick it up I promise!
Here are some typical toddler behavior:
1.There's never a good time: Trying to get your mini to sit down and pay attention is a challenge within itself. They want to tell you in a little bit or the notorious just one minute you receive while they jump around and play. This is no behavior! You yourself don't care about the school work that is presented. Go into with confidence and that you are controlling the lesson being learned. GOOD LUCK! 😬
2. Curious about everything but: You're sitting down with today's math lesson....I always say math because lets face it, it's a challenge for all of us! You're little wants to take it at their speed and it's a lot of repeating. You begin to notice their attention is else where are a solid 5 minutes of learning. This is normal your mini's attention span is very short. It's best to break down the lesson in to small chucks with fun games in the middle to keep your kiddo engaged. I know Bastian really likes flash cards so I'll do a quick flash card lesson and the between time I will let him do a little song of what we just went over. he also loves to sing. Do something you keep loves in the middle of lessons.....it'll help it last longer and make it fun for them.
3. Ignoring you but not others: With the virtual classrooms you think you can walk away and the teachers can have everything under control right. Think again! They've have already logged out of the course and on games within the iPad meant for schooling. I hear this time and time again.... or if you have them on kid's messenger they are already calling their friends! I haven't dealt with this problem too much because Bastian is in school but I do see him talking to his friends that are in the middle of the school day. My suggestion is to do work or cleaning in the same room and maybe have a reward system for them completing their school day and assignments!
You got this....it's only a moment in time and it'll soon be over... add a shot to that coffee and do that wake and bake! Find that happy place and put that fuck it in your system. What are some of the challenges you've had to go through since homeschooling you babes! Comment Below 👇🏾
