Quoting couture-mommy: I also said I'd never be a SAHM but yet, here we are. Lol.
But nope, I'd never homeschool. And I actually mean that.
But I give props to you ladies who do it.
You guys are wonderful (if you're doing it correctly)
Does it drive you crazy?
I said that with my oldest 3 children-but when my youngest son was having a lot of problems in school (not behavioral but academically) I took him out in the 7th grade and home schooled him til he graduated. He did great-and I loved it. He was able to do most on the computer with a program and it just was the best thing for my son. I never regretted it-and would do it again!
Quoting Jessy613: I couldn't either.
I couldn't either.
I never wanted to be a sahm, but circumstances made me one. And after my kids started school I realize I have little patience for homework, let alone home school them. So nope never will I home school and if circumstance make it where one or all needed to be, I hire a private teacher/tutor first.
Never say never. I said I never would, now I've been at it for 12 yrs. Have a good friend who said she'd slap me and another friend if we ever suggested that she homeschool. She's on her 4th or 5th year.
No it doesn't drive me crazy. What drove me crazy was watching my son come home from public school angry and depressed. What drove me crazy was the school blaming us for DS's falling test scores. What drove me crazy was the school denying that they were sending the majority of their students to middle school needing remedial help.
I've been home-schooling my youngest daughter for about 6 1/2 years now, with 5 1/2 of those years having her enrolled in a "school at home" program.
She is now in 10th grade, has a 3.72 GPA so far this semester (she does her semester final exams next week for Honors Biology, Honors English, and Geometry), and is college-bound. She's had college on the brain since about 7th grade, though still deciding between a couple of different career fields.
Does it drive me crazy? HER crazy? I would be lying if I said it didn't but more times than not, we're both very pleased with the program she's in, how well she's doing, and having her learn at home altogether.
