Enchantasi's Sanctuary

Of Happiness, Sadness and hereafter.....

 Life has been very different and yet quite a struggle in the past two years.  I am living back with my brother and this time its just me and my daughter.  My family still seems to think they need to control my life so therefore I have to live without my computer and only have internet at the library which is limited.  Tyra is back in CPS.  They have sent her home 5 times saying she has head lice.  They tell me that it is an infestation at home that NO other kid in CPS has or has ever had head lice.  However, when she is at home she doesn't have them.  They insist that she is learning disabled and needs to be either put in kindergarten or ld classes.  However, when we do the work at home, she does not struggle with it at all.  She knows her spelling words, she is reading, she's doing math.  However, they say that she can only follow one direction at a time, yet I have had her doing upto 7 to 8 at a time.  My family tells me I cannot homeschool her its just a lazy cop out that nobody ever truely homeschools their children.  They still don't get the fact or idea that she is MINE and I CAN and WILL do whats in her best interest.  Is she going through struggles as we are? Yes!  She has had just as much of a rough two years as we have.  I have finally gotten her into therapy finally, after the school and dhs and everybody else has always put it off, I finally got it for her.  I myself struggle with severe depression and PTSD and I know how hard it is to battle with feelings and emotions that you can't seem to get resolved on your own or ashamed to talk about it or afraid somebody is going to laugh at you for it.  My family did the same things with a cousin and they still do not see what they have done is completely wrong.  In their mind they are right and no telling them otherwise. 

I have applied for an apartment and I hope that I am on the waiting list for it because it can't come soon enough.

I'm sorry. I hope you can get your own place....it really sounds like it's necessary for you all! I'll be saying a prayer! If "they" send her home again saying she has lice...please take her to the Doc so he can document that she does not! That's just crazy!

Good luck sweetie. Yes, people do home school. It is hard to do, but it is done every single day.

I have homeschooled! It can be good for some not good for others, my daughter has a masters Oh I forgot she was homeschooled! Don't let others tell you what to do, as far as needing help with special services, the way I look at that is thats almost 1 on 1 tutoring, I couldn't afford that kind of tutoring for any of my kids. The bottom line she is your daughter, no one else knows her better than you.

Hope things get better for you soon
