Yeah not too bad. It’s tough doing this homeschooling malarkey though. Feels like her school is one of the better ones with it but still: big queries regarding when to actually tell her why something is wrong in terms of work handed in etc. And obviously she gets incredibly angry about being corrected on anything, hates being wrong.

I started doing these when they first put the link onto the mini crossword about a week back. I’m already peeved enough with their patchy dictionary that I’ve sworn off them.

This one was the final straw. I remember being proud of coming up with ‘mononym’ and ‘gnomon,’ only for them to reject both. ‘Monogamy’ was a big scorer they did accept.

Most of the homework just seems to be us telling him what to write down.
