Do you know anyone who homeschools so they can monitor and control everything their kids do? This mom obviously cares about education and is a good mom but she can't let go AT ALL. She homeschools so she can manage everything. I find this disturbing.
Ex.My dd goes to a great school and she will say things about each kid having a turn to bring snack for the class, "Someone else is choosing what your child eats?? You poor thing I don't know how you handle that! I would not be ok with that!! do you goin and make sure its a healthy snack or send a back up snack incase it's not healthy??"
I know not everyone who homeschools is this way but do you know anyone who is? What do you think the effects are? I know she has had anxiety issues in the past and I think she is a perfectionist with fear of failure. She is kind, loving, and very organized but I can't help but feel like her kids need more flexibility and a break from her. Anyone experienced anyone else like this?
