That sounds very much like my seven year old daughter, short attention span, will start teasing her brother while he works, but goes into a crying fit when I send her on a time out threatening to put her back in PS (I've gone as far as to call the call the school). What has worked for me is changing my weekly schedule; where this week we started off with Math, Language Arts, History etc, next week it will be Geography, Social Studies, Reading. With the weather getting nicer, I hold some portions of the classes outside even taking a quick stroll to the park and while swinging working on her plus two factors. I understand your frustration and hope this second year goes better for you both.

A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another.
If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden.
But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
