Ash on the other hand, as never really experienced a regular school environment. She has many medical problems that tend to cause her to get behind in school. I have had to switch and/or supplement her curriculum choices many times. I have now found a good fit for Ash. I still supplement as needed, but overall she is much happier. I remember a few months back watching her become so frustrated during her lessons that I would cut the lessons short so she could find some relief. I was always hearing things like "this is to hard," or "I can't do this, Mommy." I now watch her during lessons and see a smile on her face. She has a sense of pride in her work and is so excited when she completes something. Again, Confidence Equals Success!
As for Buddy, well, he is full of confidence at this point. I pray that if and when his confidence is lost, he will be able to find it quickly and begin his journey of success.
