Being a working mother is not easy. Being a teacher and a mother is a real challenge. Sometimes my kids grumble to me about my job. They complain because I spend too much time working for other kids. They complain when they get lower marks from English and say I never do anything for them. However, I’m sure you all experience the same thing with your kids, sisters or little brothers that they never study with their mothers, fathers or elder sisters ( my younger sister used to do that )
Anyway I promised them we will do something for their English this summer. Maybe you had heard before that they also complain about my blogging, twitter, etc but they are also very curious about all these things. Finally, on Saturday we started with vokies. It was a miracle. My daughter was never willing to do anything for more than 10 minutes with me but she really liked creating characters and wrote about their lives. She created several vokies and emailed me. Instead of playing games, she spent a lot of time recording her voice and listening to it. My son is not as eager as she is but he also tries one or two. Then I decided we should have a blog for our summer work and then I created a new blog for three of us. I will write the posts and share the things they create. I hope we will manage to work till the end of this summer.
Do you have any suggestions for a helpless mother to engage her kids and teach english to them? I’ll be happy to hear them.
