elegantlion Posted August 24, 2012 Share Posted August 24, 2012 ...and your high school student wanted to continue homeschooling, how would you go about it? This was a topic of conversation this morning. We've had a few accidents locally that have hit close to home. Ds and I talked about what direction his education would take if something happened to me. Dh could not academically handle taking over. Ds would not be a good fit for the public school, through his own admission. I was a tad surprised ds negated the public school so quickly, but I want to have some contingency plans in place for worst case scenario. My parents would be great support, and help as much as possible, but they couldn't teach upper level work. If he were older 11th or 12th, I would assume he'd have the maturity and drive to finish at home on his own. If it were the next year or two, there would need to be better support. Would you trust your 9th or 10th grader to oversee their own education if they had the emotional support and someone to help with the administrative side? Have you written any of this down for your spouse/SO just in case? Do you have friends/family that could step in for you? I do think public school would be emotionally trying for ds if I were gone. If plans were in place, I think dh would be willing to execute them, but he wouldn't try to make them up if I weren't here. It's simply been one of those life is short and you never know type of weeks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
