Okay, why do I have to be the tough biach to get my child to do his school work? How about him doing it without all the drama?
While we were working on Health, he over heard me talking to another mom about scouts. I was explaining why I needed to be leading big brother and that big brother needed my supervision. And Magnus chimed in, "He needs mom to be there because he doesn't respond well when other kids are not behaving." it was just so observant and intelligent.
So if he can grasp that subtlety, why can he not grasp that school work can be over in 3 hours or he can drag it out for 8? He is making his own torture.
