This has been an on going theme going back to at least the 2nd grade. He actually told his teacher, I like you, like my classmates but hate school. I get things are harder for him, part of it is trying to motivate him to work. He wants good grades but he doesn't understand most people have to work for them, yes he has to work harder to compenstate for sometings but no one has it easy. I just worry if he hates school now what is it going to be like come middle school and high school!!!
On the plus side he said he no longers hates afterschool, which is a plus since he is in school until 5:30 and I often wondered if its the hours but I think its the work. Its fustrating. They keep testing him for reading issues and on tests he does fine but get him to read a chapter in a book and then tell me what happened and ok maybe first go around he wasn't prepared for mommy quiz but the second and third time!!! Just already at my wits end and school hasn't even started!!!
