His homework tonight is to write a story about a couple of characters from a story they read in school. There are prompting questions, and we talked through those, and I triedto give him some ideas without just making up the whole story for him.
He hasn’t written a word yet. He’s visibly upset.
And me, I’m at a loss for how to help him without making it worse. I thought things were going okay as we talked through the prompts. Now… ugh.
I’m going to try again. I’m not sure what I’m going to try, but I’m going to try.
