Grade 1

Oh wow….who would have thought that Grade 1 homework could be this challenging!  Kyla believes, truly believes that homework is a) not that important and b) something she can’t do.

These days homework with the boys are fun, so quick and the put hard work into it.  Kyla…well, she’s supposed to do homework at aftercare.  I check her homework when we get home though and so far, she has never been able to do the homework, even though the aftercare teacher says that it was done …. and nogal done well too.

I will have to speak to the teacher about that.

We finally finished homework today and she did know all the words!  I was so proud.  I told her that she can do anything she wants as long as she believes in herself.

Kyla can.  That’s my new motto for her.

Kyla kan.

    With all your support Kyla will achieve many many milestones and realise many many dreams … thanks for all you do for that child, Mel!!!

  5. You just need to build up her confidence and tell her she can, over and over again. I’m sure with your love and support she will shortly realise this.

  6. Wonderful for Kyla to have someone like you to support her through this.

    Off course she can… I am sure her view of the world and of “Kyla” is screwed up a little by her life so far…. but thankfully you are just the Dr Phil to turn that right around.

    I know she can… because YOU can.
