My dd has a friend Rachel. She's 14 years old and not in school. Her mom told me she's tried high school, K12, a charter school (2 days a week, 2 hrs a day) nothing works. Rachel either doesn't want to do the work, or can't, I'm not entirely sure. Her mom isn't exactly a big help either. She basicly lets her daughter do whatever she wants and has a "Oh well, what can I do?" attitude.
So Rachel hasn't been in school for a month now. Her mom is worried about getting in trouble so she asked me how I homeschool DD. Honestly, I was hesitant to give her the information. I don't think she would do a very good job homeschooling her at all but then I thought, what other option does she have? So I set her up with the online forms and a detailed list of what materials I use and how I cover each subject. Right off the bat, she turns to Rachel and says, so when we get home you can fill this out and submit it right? I'm thinking 'NO! You're the mom.' 'You need to do this!' *Face palm*
Later she tells me that Rachel won't be allowed outside until she shows that she's been doing some work, cause she's not going to be putting up with that. Sigh...she has no intention of actually teaching her daughter. Luckily the work examples I gave her can be self taught, if she's serious about learning. I just hope I didn't set this little girl up to fail.
