James came over to me and P called him to come back into the water. Of course, James refused. P came out of the water, picked him up and took him back into the water. He told James that I would have to go upstairs if he continued to argue or yell. Wow, good idea. I could be upstairs in air conditioned comfort instead of sitting by the humid pool feeling my hair get curlier by the moment. However, James didn’t want me to leave, so calmed down and cooperated. P worked with him for another 20 minutes before he let James get out of the water.Today, D decided to switch with P and let him do the lesson. Nope, James wasn’t having that – D was his instructor. So, she used the”Mom will have to leave if you yell or refuse to cooperate.” D spent twenty minutes working with him and then P decided he wanted to do 10 minutes with James. He did great!
One tired, waterlogged, but very proud little boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wednesday night, he practiced laying flat and floating in the bathtub, with his ears underwater.
Unfortunately, Thursday he started complaining of a scratchy, sore throat, so we missed Friday's lesson.
So, we spent the afternoon doing something fun and educational too! I found the Geosafari Xcavations at the Brighter Child Homeschool store yesterday.
