Me: In case you’re wondering how my day is going, I just broke down into tears an hour ago during my son’s French class because the teacher asked him a question in French, he froze, and I kept telling him to answer, and the teacher could hear me, and he kept looking at me for answers and I kept telling him that I had no idea what she was saying, and she could hear me. What’s more is that after I broke down into tears, my 5 year old asked me to stop crying, while he was hugging me, and told me he needed to focus on class. So I told him to go focus on class and I continued crying. Then a minute later, he left class to get me a tissue. This stopped me from crying for a minute. A few minutes later, he came and told me that the teacher was talking in French and he couldn’t understand what she was saying. I told him to tell her that he couldn’t understand but he was too shy to do so. So I had to tell the teacher in front of the whole class that my son couldn’t understand what she was saying and I don’t understand French so I can’t help him. So she ended up repeating each sentence in English, which in my opinion she should have been doing from the beginning, just for my son. My son however, kept drifting off and not paying attention and she had to ask him several times if he understood her before she got a response.
So here’s the thing
My son is bored of online learning. I’m frustrated from my son not paying attention in classes, then floundering like a fish out of water when the teacher asks him a question. He does answer correctly more than half the time but I’m a perfectionist. So what am I going to do now?
