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?

Its really not as hard as people think it is. There are too many resources and opportunities available to families for it to be difficult. But it does takesacrifice that some people aaren't comfortable with.
It doesn't really make me crazy, but we do take the time to let each kid have their own away time through hobbies or events so we each get a sense of individuality and independence.

I could handle DS(6)pretty easy, but DD(almost 8)? No way! I'm ready for break to end. LOL I love her to pieces, but she is so dang stubborn an opinionated! 

Quoting OneAllergicMama:

LOL  I was always that mom who said they would never homeschool.

Then we hit last year where DS2 was repeating Kindy for the second time which led to him being evaluated for learning issues.  County psychologist starts the meeting with have you ever considered medicating him for ADHD, ummm, no.  I might have considered it had she bothered to spend time with him first.  Turns out after all the testing is said and done, he is profoundly gifted.  But again, the push for medication.  In the meantime, I spoke with our ped who disagreed with her diagnosis and when I informed them that his ped disagreed, they told me I didn't have the right kind of ped o.O

DS1 is my kid who is sick more than he is well.  We gave him the choice over the summer to homeschool or stay with traditional school.  He voted for the latter but within three weeks was on pred for a major asthma flare.  We pulled him out and he hasn't been sick since.  This is the longest time he has been well since he was born.  (And yes, we do things with a homeschool group and alone).  He is putting on weight finally and has outgrown his clothes - he has been FTT since 4mo old, he is now on the BMI chart!!

So yes, in our case it was for our children's health LOL

But I am sending Miss Obstinate 3yo to preschool and Kindy for her health and mine ;)

It would be bad for my children's health for me to homeschool. No way!

I couldn't either with my brain damage. No way could I coherently teach her what she needs to know. I have a hard time focusing while helping with her Kindy homework as it is. We will be getting her a tutor if she needs more help than I can give.

That said, I admire the dedication it takes to homeschool. I might consider it if I was actually healthy enough to do it.

Like prom, homecoming, school activities to name a few.
I'm not saying homeschooling is bad, like I said I said in my post, I commend you ladies.
But there are also things homeschool can't provide

Quoting Anonymous:


Quoting Anonymous: I couldn't/wouldn't do it, either. My daughter would miss out on too many things that only an actual school can provide.

Like what?

Very true.
I just asked Glenn would he want us to homeschool, he said "hell no" lol.
Good thing he said that. It wasn't a real question anyway

Quoting MilkLover0203: It isn't even just about my time. They're experiencing shit at school that I can't give them at home. It's really great.



Quoting couture-mommy: Lmfa like, I love my kid... I really fuckin do.


But I gotta have my own thing lol





Quoting MilkLover0203: Me fucking neither!
