"Hi everyone!! Having a little struggle here and need to read your thoughts or advice about it.
My girl (13yo) hates math! I've tried almost everything. She doesn't
like the online class, she prefers books. I give her 30 min to complete
the task, and it takes her an hour or more sometimes. Frustration is
about to get me."
