HappyLady Posted December 13, 2011 Share Posted December 13, 2011 I want to homeschool primarily because I don't think children as young as 5, 6, 7.... should have a full day in school. I think they need more time at those ages to play and just be kids. Well, I was talking to a woman who was running an informational meeting on homeschooling and I told her that around maybe 8 or 9 I would see where my children and I were with our homeschooling progress and if I thought they'd do better in ps or even if they wanted to go then it would be an option. She just about fell over and told me that I can't do that and it should be "all or nothing." She said if I'm going to make the commitment to homeschool then I have to be prepared to do it their entire lives. Um, really? :confused: She said the schools don't want a homeschooled kid (not that they wouldn't take them, just that they don't want them because they don't know how to sit for that long and are usually academically advanced and bored). So, is my plan crazy or is this woman crazy? :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
