I'm wondering if boys are lazier than girls. I've had no problems teaching my girl. She loves learning and she soaks up information like a sponge. She has a photographic memory and can often remember shows or books that she reads word for word. Its amazing.
She learned her ABCs almost by herself. I taught her a couple of times and then she would practise by herself and soon she knew them all. We have the whole set of Peter and Jane books and when I teach her to read using them, we would go through book after book till she completed all in the series almost without turning back.
Even now that she is older, she loves home lessons. I can give her some instructions and she would do the work eagerly. All she needs is some reward stickers to make her happy.
Its a different story with my boy though. Whenever I teach him, sometimes he would grumble and say "Tired...." He's learning to read the Peter and Jane books but we can't move on. We keep on going back to books 1 and 2 over and over again because he can't remember.
Last night he threw two of the books that we were currently reading down the bed when I was not looking. I found them because he and his sister were looking under the bed at the numerous toys and other stuff that he threw in there.
When I asked him why he threw the book under his bed, he said he didn't want to read them. So he threw them in there so I couldn't find them! When I told his dad about that, his dad said "Smart boy". Hmmm...... and he is the one who is always asking me to give more attention to the boy and make sure that he is not left behind in his lessons compared to his sister.
What to do now? I don't want to turn him off learning. His dad said he should be pushed a little so that he doesn't take it easy all the time. He hasn't outgrown his mirror image writing so we want to make sure that we spend time teaching him but he is lazy to learn. He is going to be 5 in April 2009. To me he is still a baby and I shouldn't be worried but his paeditrician had wanted to have him screened for dyslexia some months ago when we visited her. Eventually she agreed to wait a few months till he starts school to see his progress. I guess that is why his dad is always asking me to push him a little but I don't want to punish or scold him if he is lazy to learn. I don't want him to learn because he HAS to, I want him to learn because he WANTS to.
Got a lot of points why girls are better than boys and I'm a girl so duh!
-a girl can dress like a boy or plays boys games but girls cant play girls games
-girls clean, cook and do almost the entire house work and most of them a days also go to work
-girls think and are wiser than boys. we are known as intelligences.
-girls are patience that when they are pregnant, they can handle the pain for 9 months and still do the house work
-girls work harder and don't complain for a pain they r having or problem they are having deep inside while when men come home from work, the first thing they say is my food without appreciating
-girls don't disturb or interrupt because they are mature enough
-if a girl falls, a man catches her
- girls don't fall in love but boys come and ask them out
girls have better hand writing and are shy because they show respect
-girls are nice,kind,clean and dont stink while boys stink and are hairy
-boys can only wear pants while girls wear dress, skirt, pants.....
-most teachers a days are females, scientists,... and why are women chose as soldiers,armies,police,snipers? because they are smart and wise but men are ONLY chosen because they are strong in fighting (ONLY)
-we get asked.....boys fall for us
-we are always in their dreams
