I am back with another question. Recently, I shared that my DH and DD pulled the plug on HS. I am happy to report that I revisited the issue with my DH and he agreed to try HS. There is a HS "tutor" in our neighborhood that HS middle school students in her home. She began her "school/tutor service" after homeschooling her three children through middle school. Prior to homeschooling, she worked as a teacher in the ps system. She has years of teaching experience and her school has been running successfully for years now. My mother and DH expressed that we should consider sending my DD to the "school" instead of me HS myself. I think they are concerned that I don't have the ability to teach my DD everything she needs to learn and they are concerned about her socialization. (p.s., I am fully educated, a sahm, and I am the one that helps with all homework EVERYDAY). Anyway, the lady charges $500 a month. Our finances are already tight. However, my husband said that we would find a way to make it work. I am afraid that if I don't agree to my DD going to the "school," she will have to go to ps.
BTW, I do believe my DH and mom want me to be free to return to having a "career"since my youngest will begin kindergarten in the ps this year. I openly asked my DH if that's what this is really about and he denied that being the case. According to him, he supports anything that I want to do...smh
Would you pay someone to home-school your child?
