We are in mid-September and my five-year-old has started kindergarten. So far I have felt as though I am shouting in the wilderness when mentioning the thought of slowing things down. We have a girl who wakes up a 3 AM, thinking about school and all that can go wrong. There are new pressures for all of us, but, looking around, I don’t think we are in this wilderness alone.
If an aspect of a project is frustrating to the child, provide assistance - try to keep things fun. Sing songs, read stories or watch shows with a similar theme as the worksheet you choose to supplement the project - again focusing on extra activities that the child enjoys to help keep them motivated.
Take breaks, when necessary. Choose a time of day when you and the child are relaxed. Provide rewards (verbal encouragement, gold stars on "chore chart" checklists or awards for tasks that have been mastered) and change up the rewards when needed. Dont underestimate the "reward value" of one-on-one time with a loved grown up! Ten minutes of "homework time" with daddy after work can become a special ritual for both father and child
