My Tim

There have been many posts about Tim and his lack of interest in reading.  How to get more than the letters T, I and M into his head is the question.  Summer school was suggested as well as Reading and Math Camp.   Summer school is long gone.  We are in the season of camp.  Timmers is not a happy camper.  He told Daddy that he was a quitter. He shouted at me that THIS ISN'T A CAMP! IT'S A SCHOOL! He walked from the car to class saying loudly yesterday, "I ain't goin. I ain't goin. I ain't goin."  Oh but you are chosen one.  You will join the ranks of the Stream readers that have gone before you.  You're welcome son.

Being a parent isn't for the weak of heart. Lots of frustration up front with the hope of getting a grown up out of the process. Instant gratification it's not!

Persevere!

Today's scripture: 1 John 3:18 "Let is love not in word and speech, but in deed and truth."

Amen.

Tell him he can quit Math Camp (which I agree with Timmers, is not a camp) when he can spell "ain't".
