HappyLady Posted December 8, 2011 Share Posted December 8, 2011 I'd like to start formally teaching my daughter come the fall. She'll be 4 soon and has never been to school, but knows of it through cartoons or when her cousins mention it. She wouldn't be eligible for kindergarten next year so I want to use that year to see how it goes for the both of us. I don't want to wait until she'd actually have to go to school to realize homeschooling just won't work for us. I'm wondering though, how to make her understand that we have to sit down and learn now or else the alternative is her going to PS. It's easy (or at least it seems to be) to teach a child "you're going to school soon," but how do you prepare your child for "Mommy is going to make you sit and do school work for a few hours a day?" Of course I'm going to try and make it as fun as possible so she doesn't hate homeschooling and think PS would be better, but I don't know that she'll be happy doing this 5 days a week. Or am I wrong and do most kids adjust well to this? Should I start talking about it now and explaining it to her? Or how should I go about it? Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
