My poor blessed children. When I was a child I wanted to be a teacher. The need to teach is somehow still ingrained in my bones. Now the need to teach and the need to see my children succeed are intertwined.
For us education was either time spent on some workbooks I had stored in the closet, time on educational website I had approved, or doing some creative writing with prompts I gave them.
Someday they will thank me. No, really.
But here is something really cool. Tutor.com has free membership for Military Families (Check eligibility here). Don’t think of this as your traditional Tutor that sits down and helps you with homework you may be struggling with. It is much more than that.
If your child is struggling with fractions, as an example, find websites with fun games that will help reinforce the skill. If they need just a little extra reinforcement for Algebra, study guides for AP tests… we are talking skill set help from kindergarten through college (and beyond)!
Have them spend an extra 20 minutes each night using a resource you found on Tutor.com and they will become more confident in their ability which really will help them in so many ways. And a little extra work right now will help them appreciate the free time they do have. (Which really, isn’t that a life lesson?!)
