I started homeschooling my oldest in January because of a very bad situation at school. Homeschooling is not something I had really considered in the past, it just happens to be the path for him. I've been getting the feeling for a bit now that my second son also wants to homeschool. I've been talking to my husband about this for several weeks. This is an idea floating around our house. Last night my son actually told me he wants to homeschool. Now I'm freaking, have full on panic going on, I'm paralyzed. I'm not socially gifted, he loves to be around people. I have no idea where to really start. I've looked into homeschool groups in our area, and the closest one is a group that, while inclusive, believes things I don't, so I've chosen not to be involved with them. Other groups are farther away. We'll do swimming and scouts, but I don't think that's what I'm freaking out about. I think it's the idea that now I'm going to have 3 at home, and my 2nd is only really "trying" it, he says. And if I'm going to freak out every time one of my kids wants to homeschool, should I just pull them all out now? I don't think that's the best situation for everyone, but I don't know. A lot of it boils down to I DON'T KNOW, and I'm a control FREAK. But, on the positive, I'll get to use the fees I was going to pay to his school to buy books and such. I am freaking out!!!!
Thanks for letting me vent.
