Finding a balance
I thought we had a good balance. It was working really, really good…or so I thought.
Quintus would do homework, with his friend(s). Helped by his teacher mom. I would have more time to help Jason with his homework and by the time we get home, we will be able to spend time together as a family.
Well, I think that the “aftercare / homework” centre has too many kids and that Quintus is being distracted too easily.
Every time I check his homework, there is something that he didn’t complete. Forgot about.
Today, we spent 3 hours doing homework after coming home.
I also don’t want him to feel as though he has to do his homework twice.
Maybe I should go back to leaving work earlier and being solely responsible for school work.
Maybe I need to feel in control and sure that he understands and does well.
It will put more stress on me. Take even more time away from Zander (who is really not getting enough attention from me)
