I am at my wits end and feel absolutely terrible as his mother. I cry more and more everyday. He is 6, in the first grade, and failing. I grew up with Ld's and ADHD. So, I FEEL what he must be feeling and no matter what I do I can't help him. I'm constantly at the doc, and the school, bugging everyone to death. And we ARE getting help, or getting closer to getting help.........Anyway, my issue is my anger with him. He is so bright and I KNOW he can do the work. I also know that he has real reasons as to why he can't. And yet, everynight (during our hour and a half homework session), I get so angry with him that I end up leaving the room to cry. Then the guilt sets in. It is not his fault. It is my problem, not knowing how to deal with it. How to be loving and smile at him when he is looking at a word that we have worked on for a week like he has never seen it before. I need help. Any advice? I desperately want to be the one person he KNOWS will support him no matter what, and right now I know I'm not being that for him.
