“I’m not smart like my brother and sisters. Mom, what subject am I good at? Name one!”

Has your child ever blurted this out to you in exasperation? Our children, just like us, compare themselves to their friends, their sibling and those around them. When they don’t measure up like they think they should it is very frustrating to them. 

If your child has asked you a similar question, I urge you to take it seriously and help them figure out why they feel that way. A pat answer of, “That’s not true. You are smart.” will not satisfy them and will not solve the problem.

My daughter and I started a two-year journey together to figure out why she could not grasp concepts and remember them and then we found solutions that helped her learn how she needed to learn. It was not a magical cure. She will always need to strengthen her working memory and has realized that book learning is something that will take extra work on her part.

For the rest of this post, join me over at Minnesota Country Girl where I have the privilege of guest posting for the 30 Days of Gratitude in the Homeschool series!
