I recieved this from a parent and I wanted to know if anyone has any ideas. I have a very difficult time working with her on her homework whenever she makes a mistake; she becomes embarrassed and clams up. I'm not sure if it is a confidence issue or something else. It becomes quite frustrating at times for the both of us. She will become irritated at her mom and me, she won't be vitriolic, but it does get a tad defensive. Her mom and I usually just calm her down and in the end she does a superb job. I really believe she just gets shy. Any suggestions you may have for Michelle and me would be greatly appreciated.
