I'm so sorry you are having problems. It must be terribly hard.

Is it time for a week or two off for a spring break? Maybe you need to re-group. What materials/curriculum are you using? Would you consider changing what you're using? Maybe you can find something that sparks more interest in your son. I think that could be a first step in getting him motivated. I do try to gear our school to my daughter's interests (and style) when possible.

Are there other specifics you can discuss about what problems you are having? Could it be a discipline problem, or lack of interest? Has his dad had a good talk with him about putting forth more effort? Since your husband wants you to continue, then maybe he needs to sit down with your son and have a good talk with him. Maybe your son can be more accountable to your husband with his school work. Another option would be to find a co-op where he could take one or two classes to take the pressure off of you, and be accountable to another adult. Or you could check with the museums, zoos, or other community resources for classes that your son could take and maybe spark his interest.

Just a few thoughts.
