I am struggling to make a decision regarding my son. He will be entering grade 2 in the fall, and I need to decide whether he will stay in french immersion or switch to english. He's had some trouble lately with vowel sounds. And when it comes to his french home work, he will often say "I forget how to do that". It frustrating for me, because I can only help him so much, I don't speak or read french. I've talked to his teacher many times about this issue, and she says to just send it back and she will help him. She's assured me many times that it's okay that I don't know french, that her parents didn't either, and she made it through perfectly fine. Enough to become a french teacher
. His teacher also said that if we work on his vowel sounds even more over the summer he should be fine in grade 2 french immersion.
Now comes the part of me that says, do I want my child to just do "fine" and possibly struggle. I've gone back and forth on this issue so many times in the last couple months. I've got myself so confused.
This is the part of single parenting I find the hardest. That all decisions that affect my children are my resposibility, and mine alone. His father is not involved. So it's me and me alone...I think perhaps, I'm feeling a little sorry for myself today.
I'm not sure if I'm looking for advice or just wanted to vent...or babble.
Thanks for reading all this, now what the hell should I do?
