We have always used MFW. All boys and the oldest two are almost 8 and 10.
We are in CTG and really hit a struggle this year. I feel that my second is literally just a tagalong and not really learning. He enjoys the literature None of them enjoy the history spines really. We cut all the advanced sections out and added literature/living books.
I feel like I’m losing them. My oldest is always unfocused/distracted or they’re all fighting. Such a struggle to just get through!!
My oldest actually does better when he is alone, close the door to the sunroom and works by himself. He does not like help. He likes to do what subjects he wants to do - whatever order he wants to do them. He likes to be in charge. He’s also a perfectionist.
With his personality and the fact that my second is just tagging along, I’ve been looking at HOD. Feeling like at this point in time, some separation and working on individual skills might be a better fit.
Has anyone been through this? Or have any advice?
