So I have been very excited about homeschooling. I've homeschooled my son half of last yr and now all of his 12 grade yr. Some of my frustrations are: He wants to go to a private art school, well they won't accept him because he's homeschooled. I even have his curriculum through an accredited private homeschool ( they do all the record keeping and as long as he is doing 3 subjects with their curriculum then he would be able to have an accredited diploma). So this means he will have to go to a Jr college first and then try to re- apply. I found out that the state colleges can not discriminate but the private ones can.
Then my daughter who is being homeschooled for 4th grade, said she wanted to go back to public school. I feel like a failure! She says she misses her friends. I want to get her involved in an extra curricular activity to get her around more kids her age, but everything I suggest she shoots down.. like dance, or any type of sports. So I almost went to her old PS and enrolled her again :/ But thankfully I waited and she changed her mind. She said she likes homeschooling but does miss her friends. I let her have many playdates with her best friends, but she still misses seeing them on a daily basis.
Both kids are on target as far as their school work is concerned. I'm so glad I didn't give up. I hate the PS in my area. So was wondering if there are any suggestions for an extra curricular activity for her that is not dance or sports? One of my friends suggested 4H.... any thoughts? Has anyone done 4H before?
Thanks for any suggestions.
