See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Well, we went on a family retreat/camp this weekend. All if not the majority of the people there homeschool their children. Well on our way home DH started talking to me about homeschooling. He doesn't want me to homeschool. We had an intense several months last year discussing what will happen this year as my oldest son will be turning 6 in October. Well finally he said "I want them in school" and I said "I'm not comfortable with our school district, so we looked for several options. One was a charter school and Ididn't want to do that either (full day, long drive etc). I visited the school in our district as well. His parents live in a fairly good district and offer us to use their address. I said "no, that would be dishonest". Anyways, He wanted me to reconsider my school district options because we can't afford to move, and he wants my oldest in school this year. He thinks thats a good compromise....sending him to school now because he has been home for almost 6 years (I'm sorry, not sending a newborn to school....so I dont' count that!). I said a fair compromise would be half and half, and he doesn't want to budge. I even said sending them to a school district that I picked still wound't be a compromise, because I dont' beleive in the public school system AT ALL! He wants our kids to go and become "normal: and "socialized". I have talked to him about socialization, and he still disagrees with me. We came home very frustrated. I don't know where to go from here. The school year has already started, and I don't want him going to the school in our district at all! :/ Any suggestions?
