    I think that I shall never see....
    a woman stressed out as much as me
    For I have a child that makes me mad
    stresses me out; makes me sad
    I have chosen to homeschool him as a means of helping out
    however, his method of repayment leaves something without
    He takes my patience; tries it to no end
    I feel like saying, ‘hey, Im a tree! I can bend’!
    He defies every last thing I say
    By ignoring me, or worse by saying, ‘oh no mom, no way’
    I try to teach him spelling, English and to read a map,
    He responds with, ‘mom, I like computer games-I’ll never need that other crap’.
    I want to yell and scream , pull out hair and more
    I want to throw a tantrum upon the floor.
    But alas, I cannot…..Im supposed to be the Mom
    This homeschooling thing is SO not the bomb!
    Ive tried and Ive tried and Ive tried some more,
    This whole damned situation has become something I abhor
    So if you should ever have cause to pass by me
    Please gather my bones and bury them under yonder tree.

    The End

    You need a Mr. Belvedere, or a Benson, to help out. Just let him play games all day, then sell him to the DoD to operate remote control machines of war. It's a plan.:p: He'll probably love it.

    You have true talent for poetry...that was great!

    If you truly hate home schooling, why not stop? You certainly deserve to have a pleasant relationship with your son...and less stress in your life!

    I still believe that once we get over the hump of this being so new that it will be fine. Also, I didnt begin homeschooling as a choice....Actually this is something that I will be posting about in the very neear future to get people's opinions on regarding what I should do next
