I am going back and forth in my mind about homeschooling for a long time. I feel that I want to homeschool but I have so many doubts. I had planned on homeschooling but i chickened out and put my daughter in public school. She seems to like it, we've had a couple problems but nothing major. Her school is closing down after this school year tho, so we are left with very few good options.
My problems are these.. I can't really afford to put her in a bunch of activities so she can meet other kids, I have yet to find any type of homeschooling group that is free. There really arent many kids on our street. I dont have any friends who have kids my dd's age. She's very social. I'm not sure how this part will work out.
I'm in college. When I'm done with my degree I plan on working. I don't know how homeschooling is going to work out once that happens. (about 4-6 years from now)
My husband isn't against it, but he doesn't really seem to be FOR it either. He is their stepdad, he basically said it's up to me what I choose to do. I wish he was more supportive and involved in the decision, I feel like I'm completely on my own with this.
Honestly, my dd drives me NUTS sometimes lol She is super hyper, talks more than the average 5 yr old (seriously no joke!) Which is good, but sometimes I am thankful from the break I get when she is in school. If I homeschool, I won't have a break.
I will admit I am a bit of a procrastinator. I am not a morning person. I can see myself skipping a day here and there cuz I'm busy with the house or my own schooling.
I consider my children's education a top priority. I am worried I will fail them. I want them to do their best, be their best, etc and I am worried I won't be able to live up to that. But I don't feel public school will accomplish that either.
I have three children. dd is 5, ds is 4 and ds2 is 18 months. the dr suspects something is going on with my 4yr and is going to be screened for autism and other disorders. how in the world will I handle that? On the other hand, I have NO faith in public school when it comes to doing their best for him.
I'm just so confused. Deep down I know I want to homeschool but when it comes down to it I have so much fear and anxiety about it.
