I don't think I can homeschool my son

I don't think I can homeschool my son. I just get too frustrated. I spent all this time coming up with cool stuff for him to do. Today we're supposed to be learning about the arctic. We read Magic Tree House, Polar Bears Past Bedtime, which was o.k., but he even complained about that at first. Then we were going to make an igloo out of marshmallows & royal icing, could there be anything more fun? And he's complaining the whole time. He wanted to play a computer game, he wants to do this, he wants to do that. He wants to do whatever as long as I didn't come up with it.

I’m sick of it. I’m frustrated. I need a morale boost.

I know that if my son were in a regular kindergarten class he would pay attention and enthusiastically participate - he always did when he was in pre-k and then the k- program. It’s simply an issue of not wanting to do stuff because I want him to. It’s making me crazy.

The ONLY thing he ever wants to do is play pretend. He's a cat, I’m the owner. He’s a cowboy, I’m the horse. Whatever. That's ALL he wants to do and I am NOT good at it.
