Homeschooling seems to be a REALLY hot topic right now. In another group one mama said she was sending her child to PS because they would not learn from her, it would be a daily fight, etc. Basically that SHE was not the best possible educator for her kid.
Alright, I get that.. I know Gauge has a lot of days where he is simply anti-Mom, where anything I say or suggest, or want to do receives a response of "No. Cars." and he spends a good portion of his day doing his own thing and keeping to himself. Part of the reason we will be homeschooling is because I don't want anyone else's ideas forced on him. He's not interested in our project for the day, switch it up. Not interested in doing anything? There are 364 more days to try again. Now obviously when he's older, school-age, there will be things that he MUST accomplish. By that time I hope to have a better handle on what his learning style is and how to best keep him interested This is where my question/discussion comes in.
What would be YOUR approach if your relationship with your child was not one where you could sit down work affectively with them, but you knew that a public school education was not the best that they could get? What if private school were not an option for your family?
