Why are reading assignments like a horrible punishment for this kid? Is it a 'boy' thing? Is it an 'age' thing? Even when we have a really good book - a story he enjoys - getting him to read it is a struggle. Together he and I finished reading the Percy Jackson series, and now we've started the Eragon books. When there's a night that I can't read to him he barely gets through a page by himself because he acts like such a little stinker when he must read to himself.
And you know what makes him even more mad - Mom taking pictures of him being mad.
