The randomness that is My World

Reluctant writer

Year 7 English homework for my son. Teacher suggests 30-45 minutes. Overall, including anxiety/procrastination/planning/writing it took him three hours. Poor lad.

Reluctant is putting it mildly; he has always disliked writing and being a lefties makes it a little more interesting (?) as the ink smudges as he writes.

I didn’t help matters by expressing my frustration in the form of losing my temper around 40 minutes in. Not a very grown up thing to do. Definitely failed there but tried to put it a bit right by apologising and cuddling and explaining my frustration.

I think I need to meet his teacher and explain how long things take him and ask if said teacher has any helpful suggestions….

It’s going to be a long five years til GCSEs are over.
