So we are taking our older two out of public schools next year, and are going to homeschool them. For many reasons. Some because my 8 year old who is very smart is not being aloud to work ahead. So he is getting bored. Than my almost 10 year old who struggles is going to have to not be in resource (special ed) any more, because there is not a medical reason for why he is in their opinion "behind". Than they want to toss him in a school with every other 5th and 6th grader from the entire city. I don't think so.
Any ways, let me get to my real question here. For those of you who already homeschool, do you think it removes a lot of the outside influence? I mean one of my sons older friends (he was like 11 when my son was 8 1/2) had a girlfriend. His mom was totally cool with that. In my opinion that is WAY to young!
There are of course many other things that I want to steer them in a different direction with. However the dating one is the only thing I can think about right now. I would love to hear anyone's opinions and advice on this. Thanks.
