See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I am 30 years old and I have 2 beautiful young men in my life. My boys are 7 and 5. One of them has ADHD. I decided to homeschool them because I do not believe the teachers are giving my boys a love for education. My mother who I believed should of been a teacher should get paid all of their salaries. The only thing is she lives on the other side of town and she is going through some financial hardships. Well needless to say I want to put my boys in homeschool. The sad thing is...I do not believe I have the patience to do this. I am also attending online class and I really feel in my heart that this is something I should do. I have been praying about it and sometimes it keeps me up at night thinking about putting them in homeschool. My children are in grades kindergarten and second grade this year. I am going to let them finish the year at their current school but then sign them up with one of these online k-12 homeschools. I did see one Christian Homeschool that I wanted to enroll both of them in. I think this will give us a chance to be closer to eachother. The other thing that I am concerned about is putting them in something to keep their minds focused on learning. Their paternal grandmother who run a daycare is not too far away from me but all the children do there is play. She teaches basic things to the children but other than that the children are watching learning shows and she shows them love and care and they would be with their grandmother. My youngest son T he is a charmer and makes lots of friends. He is very smart and outgoing and can pick up on things really quick. My son X-man he is a sweet and smart little guy but he has a disability. He has ADHD. He goes into trances and the teachers are not doing much to help him. He is in side classes but I don't think it is helping them. I think that it would be best if I teach my own children. I just will need the Lord to help me a lot. I want the Lord to give me patience and allow me to do this for them. I need them to advance in their learning because they are really behind. I really want to do this for my children because I feel in this day and time that you have some teachers that care and some that do not. I have taken a lot of their fun things they use to do away because they have not been doing anything in class. I feel since teachers don't get paid much they are not really doing their jobs as teachers. I am their first teacher since the time they came into my life. I want to continue to be their teacher in life and in learning their ABC, math, science about the Lord whatever it takes. I am new to Cafemoms but I really need some prayer warriors to pray for me. I have a lot on my plate. I will be returning to work and going to school along with raising and schooling them. Does anybody have any feedback? Does anybody homeschool their children and work too and go to school themselves? If so, I would love if you would respond to this post.
Thank you and God bless
