Been a while. The “genius” SS got a D for math today
Haven't been back for a while. Had enough over the summer so DH and I are on the same page that 2 hours a day checking someone's homework is just not good use of our time. We decided SS needs to be the one to care about his own grades, and we can help when he has questions, but HE will be the one to check his own homework.
Recap- SS is High functioning autistic.
Has been much better than before so far now that we have time for ourselves not fighting with SS over his hw.
School started from the easier end and SS has been feeling like a genius. Well, genius had a test last week and he told DH he thought he got 100%. The results was in today and he got less than 50%. We had no idea how the teacher graded the test though, because when we asked to see the work, he had only a very badly scribbled sheet (with horrible handwritings) with no work done just one number for each of the questions.
Been telling him that if people can't read his work, they are not gonna give him the points. Hope the "genius" finally learned something today.
Every time things like this happened I just wonder whether I will be able to see the day I would finally be able to live a life without this boy....
