Motivating your kid when they hate subjects
So let’s say your kid(s) loathe any one particular subject…what then? Did you have a block schedule during your own public high school days? There’s no reason that can’t work at home for little ones as well! Let me refresh your memory: The subjects are taught every other day for twice the original amount of work.

For some kids, the number of subjects to complete may be more overwhelming than the actual amount of work. Look at these two sets of to-do lists, to see what I mean:
I like the idea of doing electives on Friday for predictability.
Others still may just really deeply despise a certain subject.
If you meet resistance on those days, make sure you don’t emphasize the idea that you are “doing double,” but instead focus on, “We don’t have to do any math tomorrow!” You can split your math into chunks as well on math days. Do one day’s worth in the morning, and the next after lunch and a brain break. 🙂
