I have two part time jobs both dealing with children and I have one 4yro son. I stay at home with my little minion. We spend time reading writing doing math science art projects visiting this place and that place and we LOVE it. My son is infatuated with all things math.
My husband likes TV. My husband like violent swearing bloody TV. Video games included. But that is it. When our son asks for him to engage in any educational activities my husband replies with "that's something for your mother."
School work to my husband is like drinking cyanide. Therefore he uses learning as a threat almost. "IF YOU CANT SPELL THIS YOU WONT DO THAT" or "YOU CAN'T BEHAVE WE WILL WRITE THIS X TIMES AND YOU CANT DO THIS" etc.
I know there are shows like Team Umizoomi or CyberChase that is kid friendly but watching TV all day to me is just LAZY.
My son thinks the world of his father but his father shows no interest in anything other than the couch. How can I bring these two together?
