So AD has been back at school for a full week now. His homework diary is huge. As he goes to a catholic school it also includes a nice section of short prayers. I am happy with this as we are a Christian family. 
His homework has been to practice writing his name and writing numbers 1-10. When he was working with Ms Z this would have been easy no argument. With me he seems to want to be in control and not take direction. Thankfully his Dad backs me up and we manage to get him to concentrate.
I need to find a way to get him to write better and still improve his reading.
