Yes, my DD will space out and not do anything if I don't keep her on task. Which is no fun when I say "do this page while I put your brother down for a nap" and I come out and she's written 2 letters and spaced out
I tend to hover, I only homeschool my daughter, and just yesterday she was working on time4learning, and she told me to stop looking at her work because she gets distracted, lol. My son brought home homework from his school. I looked at it and started telling him how to find area, length times height. He was very resistant about it. At first I thought it was a behavioral issue, he has bipolar disorder and adhd. Then we went to see his counselor and I told her what happened. Then we were discussing it, and it occurred to me that he didn't ask for help. So my homework from the counseling session was to wait til he asks. So now I'm working on backing off until I'm asked. I think it is normal because Destinay is 10 and Thailee is 11.
This...I stay on top of it..but not RIGHT on top..in n out of the room.
It depends. She can work independently, but she has to work at the kitchen table or in the living room to stay on task. If she works in her room, nothing gets done. So I don't "hover," but my presence is felt.
3 spectrum kids and a toddler nearly requires hovering or instead of school work we find out how many dots are on the wall, why does paper have a smell and basically nothing but fidgets no matter what we do to help them. oldest is starting to be more independent but it is a struggle.
