I'm really at my wits end. My son is on meds, doesn't eat due to them ( 68 pounds!!!) yet still con't concentrate worth a darn. I'm ready to hang it all up and throw him back in school. He knows this, knows I'm totally getting burnt out and still doesn't co-operate. I know he really is trying but it doesn't feel like it at all. I'm almost in tears in the mornings because I know that I have to do school and I feel like it doesn't matter what I do, he will just goof off and try to make me let him just read non-school books or play his PS3. We just finished a history test which I went over with him right before I gave him the papers. He hates to write and the last question of the test requires him to write 3 things someone did and how the church responded. I went over it twice with him, telling him that "you need to know this for the test!" He knows that info just....? I haven't graded it yet but what he was saying as he was writing makes me think that he'll get it at least partially wrong.
THanks for listening...I just feel like a bad mom (after the test I sent him away from me to go have a break, when the time was up he came over to me, started crying and said " I know you want to send me back to school but I really don't want to go!"), a worse teacher and totally down in the dumps!
