What should you do if your child is not understanding a certain subject or concept in a class? There are many things you can do. Often times the curriculum you choose will have extra work on their website that you can print out or copy by hand and have your student complete. This will allow them to get extra practice in. You would spend more time on in the areas that they do not understand. For instance if my daughter says she that she does not understand what I am talking about when we go over her history class then I reword it for her or explain further what the textbook is trying to say. When she did not understand what I meant in science that atoms join together to make a molecule we physically reacted it with her, my husband and I all being an atom and then we linked arms and feet literally becoming the molecule. Another thing that you can do is hire a tutor. Sometimes having someone else explain the same concept that you are trying to helps the child understand it better. When I was in high school I often tutored for chemistry and math; both regular and AP classes. Getting extra help does not have to be expensive either there are lots of free resources online that you can use. You can probably find a video on YouTube to help explain things but I do caution that you watch the videos before your child incase there is anything that they do not need to hear not all videos will be kid appropriate. You can get library books to help explain things or add in another curriculum. Getting a math booklet that has only the same problems that your child has trouble with can help them get extra practice without switching to other kids of problems that they already know how to do or ones they have not learned how to solve yet. What are things that you have done to help your child with things they do not understand? Put your tips in the comment section below.
We have been trying out a lot of new baby items this year and here is another one we did not have for our first daughter. It is called Sensory Tissue Box . What makes this toy so much fun? Let's be honest babies love to get into things. We have tried before to let her play with a regular box of tissues. Big mess. The tissues were everywhere and they have like 250 tissues in a box, she torn them up to so an even bigger mess. Our daughter even went as far as to rip the box itself up. This sensory tissue box though is made of very soft fabric so she can not tear it up, it has 15 tissues so less to keep track of and the tissue can not be easily torn up either. This is the biggest positive of this sensory box in my opinion. Another positive to having this sensory tissue box instead of a regular one is that the tissues are different colors and sizes as well as having different textures to them. There are 6 see-through ones, 6 see-through ones that have dots on them and 3 crinkly ones. T
