*Small update* Having someone else teach your child...
Update: We went over everything with her yesterday and today he stayed there and did his work with her for the first time. Dh took the day off for Vday and we decided to go out of town and let them try it out. She said he did great and finished everything. She didn't have any problems, so that is a relief and makes me feel better about starting work Thursday.
Our son is 13 and in 7th grade. He has been homeschooled since kindergarten. There has always been either me or his dad here during the day teaching him. First it was me, then when I finished college, I went to work and hubby stayed home and also attended college. Then, he went back to work after finishing and I stayed home and got my Masters. Now, I am starting work this Thursday as a social worker and neither of us will be home with him for the first time.
He has the option of attending school, but really doesn't want to. My in laws live next door and my mil recently retired and has volunteered to keep him and do his work with him. She worked in a school as a professional tutor and is definitely smart enough to handle it. And, with our son being 13, he does most of his work on his own now anyway. However, I am still really worried and freaking out about the situation. I have a feeling it is simply because I am a control freak and letting go of control of my son's education after all these years is really tough. I know he will be fine, but, how do I stop worrying?
Would any of you ever consider this option?
