Both of my older children are currently in public school (2nd and 1st grades), and I'm considering pulling them out at the end of the year to do homeschooling. I'm concerned about the lack of creativity allowed and the nit picking on small, insignificant issues rather than school being focused on learning. I'm concerned, though, because I'm afraid that I won't have the patience for it, especially with my oldest daughter. She's very extroverted and needs a lot of interaction whereas I, and my son who is in 1st grade, are both very introverted and calm. My husband is on board with whatever I decide, I just don't know what to do. I considered it for my DS last year after an incident with him coloring things the "wrong" color. I get that for the teachers it's about following directions, but I don't want my kids to grow up simply following directions. I want them to learn and to see the world the way they want rather than the way their told, you know?
