I have pressure from my dad ( he homeschooled me, strict book based schooling) to make sure my 1st grader doesn't get behind kids from school in the same grade. This is my first yr homeschooling, I just feel stressed out an worried all the time my son isn't learning enough, I am using time4learning, we read and write an learning some Spanish. In time4learning the math I can't even understand how to explain how they r teaching him the different ways how to subtract, so of course he doesn't understand it and I'm worried he won't be able to learn math like he would in school w a teacher who gets it.
Also I guess I'm too laid back, not organized, and I have a 3 month old, I'm a single mom, but it seems difficult for me to get him started school every morning and do everything and have a full day off school everyday mon-fri, I'm planning on going to school yr round because of this, and he has to go to school 180 days and take one of those end of yr assessment tests for our state.
Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated.
