3browneyedboys4me Posted February 19, 2012 Share Posted February 19, 2012 (edited) My son has continued to ask for PS. We are entering our third year of his asking...it just doesn't seem to go away. He really wants to go. I never thought this would be a problem. I never expected it- silly me! However, he does and now, I am wondering if I should just let him experience it. Have any of you dealt with this before with your own kids? I have so many mixed emotions about it. I know that homeschooling is the right choice for many, many different reasons. But, does right make it the BEST choice for HIM.? He is extremely social, competitive, and I think he wants to be 'seen' with his own peer group. He just likes to be involved in so much. I do feel like he could be more stimulated, but I just can't provide that at home...and, I have too many children to run around and try to keep him active. Well, I guess that doesn't sound quite right, but I do have four children and the youngest is two and I'm not willing to run around all evening to keep him busy. So, what to do...what to do? We happen to live less than two miles from a very good elementary school and brand new 'good' middle school. *sigh* The elementary school ranks high in our district. I'm not sure about the middle school. I guess i should add that he is in third grade this year. :) This has been going on since 1st grade. There has never been any doubt or change in his mind about it. He just simply wants to go and try it. So, what would you do? I just need some guidance, or perspective? I'm feeling like this desire is just not ever going to go away for him. Advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!! So, I'm just being completely curious here...would you allow your child to experience PS?
