We have homeschooled for 10 years now. Our DS and DD went to public school, before DH finally said I could homeschool our adopted daughters and our grandson who we are raising. Our dd's are all special needs. I tried unschooling but they needed some structure. We are currently trying to help two of them become more independent.
My question is about our DGS. He is VERY bright....and fits most of what I've read on giftedness. However he refuses to have anything to do with what he might term as school.....He wants to learn chemistry yet won't spend any time actually reading or learning about the periodic table.
He loves rocks and minerals....but can't do much more than what we have already....I try to read alot,
watch videos, try to show him some math ....but he complains and bachs at everything we do....I want him to learn for himself eventually....and LOVE it. He still prints very large all capitals even though I've worked on encouraging cursive for two years....he won't practise anything...but thinks he should know everything already without work...I am Very tempted to sit him down and make him actually do school.....then loosen up later....but I want him to do it....and want him to pick up and go where ever his interests and such take him.
Has anyone else ever been this frustrated....what worked for you?
