Hi everyone, I'm Katie. Wife & mother of 3 girls (16, 9, & 3)
SAHM currently/ Avon rep!! (:
Anyway, I have been looking into taking my kids out of public school & homeschooling them.
I have been thinking about it for a while now, & I am wondering how it all works out for you other moms?
My husband works full-time & will not be home to help me.
I'm not too fond of the public school... I know I can't protect my children forever, but I want to protect them from all the "bad" stuff as often as I can while they are under my roof.
At our local high school within the last few years there have been: more than 6 suicides, arson on the school staduim, drugs in school (pot, alcohol, cigarettes, & chew) which have led to k9 drug searches during school hours, & not to mention that provocotive image of other children.
My kids know right from wrong, how they should & shouldn't dress, act, how they should choose their friends, but still!! JUST YUCK!! Not to mention there is NO 1:1 time for students...
My questions are:
Did you set up a special area for your kids? If so, how & where in your house is it?
What did you do for "mommy-time"?
Do you feel like you kids learned more being homeschooled?
How did you meet your children's social needs?
& lastly, was it worth the change?
