LisaKinVA Posted June 15, 2009 Share Posted June 15, 2009 I lump my K and 1st grader together for history, Bible, Science and Art. I do this for my sanity. But, I am struggling with a bit of guild for essentially "holding my daughter back" when she could be doing work that's "up a level" from where she is (especially in science). It's silly, but I still feel like I'm somehow shortchanging my daughter, while accommodating my younger son (and me). Those of you who have BTDT... please reassure me that when my daughter is older she won't "hate me" or that she'll accelerate herself if that is what she wants. I don't have them grouped together in math or LA... on those, they are each on their own individual levels. But, I'm only one person, and there is only so much "individualizing" I can do. I guess I'm feeling this more keenly, because she is my girl, and I didn't like being "held back" when I was in school. I don't want to short-change her. I know, I'm borrowing trouble, when there is none at the moment. <sigh> Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
