We are unschooling. So, it's not like I can burn out on that. It's just being w/my 8 yo all day, almost every day. He is very intense, beyond the "highly spirited" child. I have no $ to put him in any sports programs or anything like that. He is not motivated to really do anything like that anyway. He usually plays with friends in the neighborhood everyday but even that break from him isn't enough. Also, the fighting he does w/5 yo dd is so frustrating. I also have a soon to be 3 yo. I'm not sure what to do. Sometimes I am just so tempted to have a free place to put him all day, almost everyday.
