Guest lahmeh Posted June 12, 2009 Share Posted June 12, 2009 (edited) I need some help here please. My husband has just insulted me bigtime! He says I can't possibly teach our children history and science because I didn't graduate high school nor did I have much interest in these subjects (until now). My children are my world and I will do everything in my power to teach them the best that I can. I tried to explain to him that I will be given the tools to teach them and that since they are only in 1st grade right now that I will be learning right along with them! That didn't seem to be worth anything. He claims since these were his strong subjects in school that he will be much better at teaching them and I wouldn't be able to do a thorough job. To be honest, he is NOT the best around children. He's really good at making the money for our family but when it comes to the children they MUCH prefer to be around the more gently, patient and kind one (me). He works A LOT and when he finally comes home it's bedtime for the DC and he's cranky and tired. He can't possibly teach them through the years. Now I'm not the best with words but I am confident that I will do a fine job teaching them (I just don't know how to PUT it into words)! I got A's in school all the way up until I dropped out as a Junior in high school. I just got bored and made bad choices back then. Can anyone throw me a few lines to make him see that it IS possible for a parent with only a junior year of high school education to do a great job homeschooling through the years? Pleeeeease?! Thank you for taking the time to read my post! Edited June 12, 2009 by lahmeh Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
