Are They Gettin It? Hang In There

Are your kids gettin it?  Not every subject is easy for every child.  I just want to encourage you to hang in there!

At one point Espresso had trouble reading well. I started to sweat it and get worried. My husband and other homeschoolers encouraged me to just hang in there. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and hang in there he'll catch on; AND he did!!

About 2 years later Double Espresso wasn't grasping multiplication. After hanging in there with Espresso, I knew that eventually, Double Espresso would catch on. Sure enough, it was like a light switch was flipped and he caught on.

Sometimes, it is a matter of maturity. Sometimes it is a matter of learning styles. Sometimes it is a matter of giftedness. You may even want to take a break for a little while. Eventually, something will click and your child will "get it".  (Disclaimer: If your child has a disability, I would love to help you find some encouragement!)

If your child is having trouble in a certain area, maybe we can help give you a fresh perspective!
