If you are having difficulty with your child in a subject, try an "sneaky" angle. Is he into cars then use those as a way to focus him - ie: go to a new car dealership let him see and feel a Viper or Hummer, go to the parts department and ask how many pistons or sparkplugs are in an engine, go to the mechanic ask what makes the engine go etc. (then you can talk about if 2 vipers were driving from X city to Y city and one went 20 mph faster....)
things like that bring math when you bake a cake decide to double the recipe.. then he has to work on his fractions to help you creat the cake- and then you eat your homework..good deal !
Language is something that can easliy follow an exciting experience - for example after seeing he favorite car up close ask him to write a paragraph about what he saw. then a paragraph on what he will do someday whne he has his own viper...etc
Here is where enthusiam makes the difference!
If he is still fighting you then you know that he knows how to "work you over" and push your buttons..Standup to him be consistant and persistant and he will fall into place. If you can get dad on board to back you up, then that's where the rubber meets the road and you'll do just fine!
Remember that these children were given to YOU specifically because you are the one that is specially made for the job of raising them and that includes math and language :) !!!!
You can do it!!
