Even all those all-nighters during the years of medical education could not prepare me for the task of helping a 5-year old with his homework. I have come to discover that it can be equally grueling or worse. It is not that my son is not a enthusiastic learner, there is just so much of everything! The respect I have for all teachers and parents who homeschool grows by the minute. Also this can be noted down as one of the reasons of the recent slump in my craft and blog activity.
