Does anyone have a child in regular school and one homeschooled?
I did homeschool my dd (7) back in K when we were waiting for a spot to open in a private school and it went well.. then my ds was 3 so not an issue.
dd has since been diagnosis with adhd and has since had other troubling problems yet to be given a diagnosis (probably due to age).
She has attempted suicide while in an episode of rage and while undergoing psychological testing yesterday told the doctor she thinks of it often.
So my dh is reluctantly giving in to homeschooling her but our ds in K is loving school. dd has few friends if any in school and no one wants to play with her at recess.
She is an incredibly smart kid and I don't want ther to lose her love for learning - esp math!!
It would mean I couldn't go on field trips and not sure that dd would cope well with her brother still going to school ... on the other hand I am not sure that my ds would cope well with her staying home.
A good friend of mine who works full time told me "so what I never get to go on field trips".....
If you are in this situation how do you do it?
The other q I have is that we are due to go overseas 11/21 for 5 weeks anyway.. would you wait till then to pull her or pull her sooner?
Any advice appreciated!!
