Today we got back the benchmark testing for Q2 for the little one. It’s not where it should be and I’m trying not to take it personally. My poor husband is at sea with me, huddled in the very same boat.
I know that parenting is a non-linear, constant learning experience.. but sometimes it feels like it really likes to kick you when you’re already pretty far down.
I will be devoting more time to helping her with her problem areas, but I’m also alarmingly aware that she just simply does not test well. Her actual struggles, coupled with poor testing, is really just setting all of us up for a long, long, long road ahead.
Parenting is a journey, not a race. The only way to win, is to be 100% supportive of your kids and their successes. This isn’t for you. This is for them.
Excuse me while I intone that until it becomes my truth.
