simka2 Posted March 7, 2012 Share Posted March 7, 2012 (edited) Just noticed my title should have been : Does anyone not regret leaving their kids in for the remainder of the year. Ugh! Obviously, I regret in some regards ever putting the kids back in school. I do see good in that they now WANT to be homeschooled, where as before they were longing for their old PS. I have talked with them at length and they do understand that what they missed, that 1st-3rd grade is pretty much a honeymoon phase of school. My olders are coming to terms with the fact that they prefer homeschooling over school in general. We have already decided they will not be continuing at this school (or any) for the future (might be reconsidered at upper high school, but not sooner). Dh wants them to finish the year, I am not as sure. I am reading over and over about how many regret making them finish out the year. Anyone not regret this? I am the most concerned about my 4th and 5th graders. My 1st grader is still a bit insulated although even he is commenting on the cussing used my his fellow 1st graders. :001_huh: We do have tears. My kids are crying in the evenings and mornings about having to go to school. Some of this is stress over the tests they have had to take this week and the rest is stress over the situation with their peers. Here's the deal. The teachers and administration are being very proactive. The Principal was even on the kids bus yesterday, because there have been problems with a couple 2nd graders. Dd struggles with a specific boy and when I asked her yesterday how he treated her, she said there wasn't any issues, because he spent the day in the Principal's office. What would you do? Why? They are not in a dangerous situation, but they are miserable. Edited March 7, 2012 by simka2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
