It takes divine creativity to get cooperation lately. He hemmed and hawed longer than the amount of time it would have taken him to simply read.the.

I don't believe school work and learning should always be fun, but I don't believe it can't be either. No point in arguing and getting upset about a child's reluctance either. I'd rather switch gears, get creative and have productive results.
I am getting skilled at working around his objections. It's a win-win situation.
