MrsBanjoClown Posted August 26, 2012 Share Posted August 26, 2012 Public school starts here Monday. Homeschooling is such a major life change for my family, and I am excited about it, but I know that I am going to feel very odd on Monday knowing that school has started and my kids are not there. For background, I have taught in public schools for the last 10 years and my dh worked for 5 years in the IT department at our school district. We are homeschooling this year for a few reasons, but they all focus on our family and have nothing to do with the schools. We are planning a move for sometime this year and homeschooling prevents us from having to worry about a change in school districts in the middle of the year. There have been some behavioral issues with my kids that I want to address, and I'm hoping being with them all day will make that easier. I also just want to spend more time with my kids while they are young. I live in Texas, and I withdrew my kids from our school district, but I guess I'm feeling like that was too easy and there's something else I need to do or I'm going to "get in trouble". FWIW, everyone at my school district was supportive of homeschooling, and both of our families have been also. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
