i homeschool my kids! my oldest (now 9yrs old) started out going to public school, but after a while, we seen in his behavior, grades, overall school experience, that he wasn't getting the challenge he needed. and to make matters more complicated, my son has cerebral palsy...SO OF COURSE, that, plus him being a cute/likeable/nice kid, just made it all the more impossible for folks to tell this lil' joker 'no' or 'do it yourself' when needed.
he's been through rigorous testing, and despite the school's accusation that he should be in a learning disabled class, the psychological testing proved that he in fact was NOT 'LD'. now don't get your panties in a bunch ladies, i'm not suggesting that there is anything wrong with a kid or person that is LD, but i think it's unfair to just slap that label on someone who just so happens to have a physical issue.
well, it was during this time that the idea to homeschool came back up...i spoke to his physical therapist, and i went forward with it. we initially were only going to homeschool him for a couple years, get him on track, then send him to a regular chicago public school...BUT then i started to see/hear a decline in the safety of the schools and the poor education...so i just decided not to. instead, we're going to homeschool (at least) up to high school.
but, what is your thoughts on homeschool?
If you are homeschooling your kids and using grammar like "we seen..." and "what is your thoughts," then I'm scared for your kids.

i'm neither for or against either option , i think you need to pick which works best for your child......dd 15 (16 in a month) goes to a public high school (her choice) ....dd 13 goes to a private country school (five miles from town) (her choice) .....ds 9 (aspergers, autism, anxiety disorder, ADHD) goes to a program for special needs kids.....so that a total of 3 kids and 3 schools.....just do whats right for that child...
