If educational methods make your child miserable

Three things you can do:
1) Offer empathy to your dispirited child. Accept and honor the child’s experience.
2) Contend for your theories of education—explain/share them with your child, and why you think they will work.
3) Use creativity to trouble-shoot. Somewhere between these two points of view (yours and his or hers) a solution will emerge.
