Homework; A Mini-Post

20 09 2012

Do you know what really sucks?  Homework.  Copying words for spelling is such a HUGE struggle for Cameron, which ends in tears (because he’s exhausted and over-sensitive and throws fits over things that aren’t that big of a deal).  He’s not even supposed to have this much homework because the teacher gives class time, but Cameron is “falling behind”.  At least that’s what Cameron told me.  But why is he falling behind?  Is he goofing off?  Do we need to look into (gasp) medications?  What other things can we do before we get there?  Does he need an IEP?  What additional accommodations would help him?  Is it his handwriting?  Handwriting is a skill I most definitely have taken for granted until Cameron started struggling.  But O.M.G. does he struggle.  How am I going to make it through 10 more years of this?!  Can you tell I’m panicking and stacking all my problems into one giant pile that makes me overwhelmed and thinking that everything’s way worse than it actually is?  Thank you, lone Berry Weiss, for ending my night on a more relaxed note.  Ahhh… Mommy’s medicine.
