My daughter became too "well" to need aids at school and now...she brings home homework and I am the village idiot. Rounding...I know how to do this but she's telling me different, not believing I'm right and the teacher...is asking why she's not getting it????

Hi jamberrt this has happen to me also my son will want you to do it for him then say I'm wrong and I get so upset with him that I end up giving him a break but I end up talking to his teacher and he will say fine mom I"ll do it your way but if its wrong I'm letting my teacher know you told me to do it this way any way does your daughter have ADHD because I found out by doctors that this is part of it I hope I'm some kind of help if any also my son has a special ed teacher helping him also with this stuff good luck

my daughter used to have help and now is considered to not need it. But she jumped to grade 7 this year and I'm not prepared to battle over math every night. That's what teacher's get paid for isn't it...? Sigh. I just want to do the mom part. My mom helped me with my homework but I didn't argue with her. My daughter argues about absolutely everything...everything. Yes, she ADHD.

Hey jamberrt, don't you just love homework. Me and my daughter had the exact same rounding argument. I have come to understand that we know how to do it but it's not the way the teachers teach it and it just confuses the kid. Homework is a nightmare for me, and when my little darling starts throwing her fits, I just send her to her room until she can control herself.
Sometimes she will be sent to her room numerous times before we can continue with the homework. She gets home at 2:30 and the majority of the time we are just finishing up around 5:00. By this time, I'm ready to explode. I have explained this to the school and she will be staying after school two days a week for math and reading remediation. If the teacher realizes she isn't getting it, maybe they need to reconsider her needs and maybe some after school tutoring will help.

I was having the same problem teresa and then i started working with one of the aids in Michaels room and she showed me ow they study at school. It has helped so much. Im sure if you go to the school and talk to one of the aids they would love to show you.

See...I could do that - I'm childless every Tuesday so maybe tomorrow I'll just sit in on Math class. I think what frustrates me too this year is that they're teaching concepts back to back. So in six weeks they've done reminders from last year, long division, rounding, exponents, patterns, with no break in between so my dd is just inundated with concepts and can't separate one from the next. One at a time please!
