Kids and exams

20131125-163332.jpg

My kids know that they have to study and if they don’t make time to do it! I will!! But as my kids grew older and entered the teenage hood it’s not easy to make them listen to me and do everything I tell them!! Like studying for example, when they were younger homework time was easy! And studying for exams was hard on me but they didn’t through excuses not to study!
Now Adam gives me such a hard time! I put a plan for he’s studying and for him to start takes forever!!! No matter what I say or do he won’t study and keeps giving me the worst excuses ever!!!! He wouldn’t mind staying in bed doing nothing then open a book and start studying!!
It stresses me out big time! I could easily say it’s your exam! Your grades on the line and not care and stop nagging but my heart aches and I know that he’s stressed out as well and simply not in the mood to do so! Some times we have that feeling as adults! But I know that he doesn’t know how important it is to work hard for school for a batter future! That’s why my effort with my teenagers are double the effort then when they were you younger! At the end of the day I have the worse headache! No energy at all! And not in the mood for anything!!
I’m not gonna say I tried everything! Cuz really can we ever get to trying everything as parents with our kids? No but I have tried a lot to fix this problem but some failed from the start and some worked for a little while but nothing worked as magic!
But really as parents we should know better! Their no magic in raising our kids I wish their was but NO!! That’s what makes being a good and great parent is all about ๐Ÿ˜‰
