Jocelle seems to be progressing quite well in her mathematics although I had to use the cane many times to get her to do her work. I know it’s not the best way to motivate her but it’s the most effective way to get her to complete her work when I’m tired or when we are in a rush..
She’d do one question and then count the number of pages left in the worksheet.. It’s really frustrating to make her do her work. There was once when I even had to kiss her after she had completed each page before she would carry on!
Anyway, she still seems to be coping well.. And she’s progressing so well that she’s almost catching up with her brother who’s learning how to add 2 to numbers up to 32..
She just did a test and she actually did very well!
I’m very proud of her but I still hope she’ll be more motivated to do her work so I don’t have to resort to caning her.. But I guess all kids suffer from a mild form of masochism as they would only do what you tell them after you scold or cane them.. Sigh..
