Artsy Crafty Ways To Avoid Doing Homework And Math
When it comes to completing her homework or doing Math that I have set for her, Rascal #2 will find 101 ways to evade doing them. She will say that she’s thirsty and wants a drink, she wants to pee, to poo, say that her eyes are tired, her hands are tired or she will say that she wants to do art and craft. These are just her artsy, crafty ways to run away from it all. Many times, tons and tons of voice raising, whipping, grounding and threats are needed to get her to do her work. I am really worried how she will survive in a Chinese primary school when she goes to P1 next year. She can’t even be punctual to reach her pre-school now, which starts at 8:15am, what more be ready by 6:30am for the transporter to pick her and Alycia up. I can only pray that a miracle will happen and that by Jan 2012, there will be an about turn in her.
My rascal, in full concentration creating a, a, oh well, I don’t know what you call this thingy, made out of toilet roll core, some glittering party pack bags and a broken heaband LOL!!! At home, she will rummage through drawers and fish out stuff to transform them into something else. She makes kites, hand puppets, gloves, CNY lanterns and a whole load of stuff that only she can think of!
