School-struggling can be very debilitating for a family. Tensions rise as the patterns of avoidance and non-compliance emerge as the school year progresses. Parents can feel quite hopeless and directionless relative to the mounting school problems.
For the past 14 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with children from K to12 in a variety of subjects, but primarily in English, Language Arts and Humanities. I’ve been both a classroom teacher and a tutor lending academic support to children in the regular school system and those who are homeschooled. To that end, I’d like to broach a topic I know will be sensitive to many parents - falling into the trap of being your child’s secretary. Unsure what I’m talking about?
