My son is 7 and in 1st grade he went to public school in kindergarten and this is our first year homeschooling. I was home schooled a few years elementary middle and high school so I was comfortable with homeschooling. We also were going to be moving to another state an I didn't want to have to take him out of public school and him have to start a new school, so anyways. This year it was kinda crazy being the first year homeschooling and me trying to figure out what I was doing, moving, ect. Now we are trying to decide whether to let him go to public school or home school again. I don't have a car so it's been kinda hard not being able to go places in the daytime an take him to be involved with other kids like sports ect. When my boyfriend comes home after work sometimes we go to the park an on the weekends we go to the lybrary. I also don't have the Internet yet long story Internet company is taking forever to wire our house, so I order schoolbooks from a home school store where I live. I want to homeschool him again and feel like i learned alot from mistakes this year, but i feel sometimes like im not doing enough or teaching him everything he needs to know for his age. Then other times i feel like hes smart and knows enough. I enjoy having him home and worry if he goes to public school about bullying and what he will learn. He got beat up in kindergarden by a 1st grader on the playground. Then other times I feel like I could use a break because I also have a 9 month old and sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with both kids 24/7. Anyways What are your thoughts or suggestions on how to make a decision?
