My family is ALL against me homeschooling they think that since I am slightly learning "differently abled" (I have NF1) That me homeschooling will set my son way back. I explained that I am  teaching the same things as school just he is not in a traditional school.

 

They cant get it that I am using a programe that I am with a teacher that I am accountable to monthly and weekly. Or that he will go to the homeschool "school" with all the other kids at least once a month. They are "so concered" that my son (going into grade 3) will fail and be behind.

I am so hurt that my own family doesnt have faith in me. Any one else experiance this?

My family was mega against HS the first year. But the results quickly changed thier minds. I was very offended that they didn't think I could HS the kids without screwing it up. They kept citing how awful my math grades were in school. (Yea due to complications with the teachers i was just passed each year and never really learned any but the most basic math until after meeting DH.) However, it never occured to them that DH and i would both be full into this, DH teaches math and some science and I teach the rest.

As far as dealing with them that year I made it clear that if they couldn't support me then to keep thier opinions to themselves and to withhold judgement until the trial year was up. 

Now except for DH's bio dad's side everyone thinks that HS is the best thing to ever happen to our family.

 It depends on your state! In my state (Texas) you don't need any degree not even a high school diploma to homeschool your children. There are other states that say yes you do need one!

Yes. My family and my husband's and my husband himself were all against homeschooling. I did what I thought was best for our kids. I'm glad I did. My husband is glad too.

If you feel that this is best then that is what you need to do.  I occasionally encounter people who don't really understand what we do.  I have people who think that my children are missing out on things....they aren't by the way.  They are exposed to children that have the same interests as them.  We enjoy doing this and my kids are flourishing.
