Dh mentioned that he would like to homeschool our 6yr old son next school yr. He wil be in 2nd grade next yr and I'm just not sure about things. Dh and I both had bad experiences in school. I was in public school where my class had about 250 kids. Dh went to a private school, where up until high school, you were with the same 30 kids. Our son is extremely smart, and last yr he was excited about homework and being at school. This yr it started out good, but now he complains everytime its time to do homework, and just doesn't want to be at school. He says its boring. Our son is big into sports already, so that is my fear about pulling him out of public school. I know by law they have to allow him to participate in the school sports, but I'm afraid he will be treated bad if we do it that way. When I was in school we had a girl join our cheer squad that came from a private school, and she was hated and tortured for it. My thinking is maybe we could homeschool him for now till 7th grade when they start middle school. Then they start seperating the kids into different academic levels, and that is when school sports start(before then, you play off the local clubs). DH does not like the idea of pulling him out and then sending him back. We did sit ds down and talk to him about it, and he really wants to do homeschool too.
The other thing that is holding me from jumping fully into this is, we have a 20 month old at home right now that is having some delays, so we have therapist coming to the house working with him, and he is being evaluated for Autism. We also have a 5yr old dd who is diagnosed with Autism, that is in school yr round. On top of our 20 month old having alot of therapist coming to the house, I am currently 24wks pregnant with our 4th child.
I just dont know what to do, or where to start. Sorry if I'm rambling:(
