Wednesday came and I was done with the class and they wanted me to start on the job training right away. I did everything to set my kids up to be successful and really tried to rally them to the cause. They had a morning schedule, alarms set, game plans, and expectations to help each other. Explaining how I really needed them to be obedient, work hard, etc. I went to work and was so glad that it is about 5 minutes away now and that I would be done by about 11ish. I was worried however what it would be like when I got home. I was completely blown away when they had done everything I had asked of them and some more. My daughter was done with school except the subjects that required my teaching and assistance. They excelled more than they normally do with my help! I know they were working hard, it really showed.
I see now that this may be good for them, especially my youngest child who tends to be very dependent on me. When they always have mom and dad to rely on, it doesn’t give them the opportunity to really spread their wings and soar. So, there is hope. All in all it was a tough week but an encouraging and prosperous week. I hope we can make this adjustment. It is an awful lot to get adjusted to all at once.
