I just posted a few days ago and here I am posting again- I just found this message board and think it is a great help to people with questions!! Well my concern is homework. How do any of you with young add/adhd children go about doing homework? My daughter is in kindergarten. I don't know if they just ask too much of kids now a days or not, but my daughter is starting to read, and write already. She has such a hard time reading. (they are working on 3 letter words- cat, bat, bug, rug., ect..). My husband and I sit down with her for literally an hour trying to teach her to no avail. She has such a large class- 25 other kids and I feel she doesn't get the attention she needs in school so I teach her at home as well. Anyways, we can tell her that "at" spells at 5 times and then ask her what "at" spells and she just cannot tell us!! Oh We both get so frustrated. I know she is not paying attention and I get mad at her but should I? What if she really can't help it? Does anyone have any suggestions on #1 ways to go about getting her homework through to her and #2 dealing with her not paying attention. Any feedback will be appreciated.
