I hate public school.. hate it, hate it, hate it. I’ve been saying for about 3 years now that I want to homeschool Sebastian, now 8. So, what’s the problem? I work from home and have an almost 2 year old sitting in my lap 99.9% of the time. My job requires that I answer a lot emails every day, take phone calls, research and test products for review, write proposals, prepare marketing campaigns, etc.. Oh, and my other job (you know.. the mommy job) requires that I cook, clean, and bathe the kids. UGH!
How does a mom get it all done? I can say all day that I will come up with a routine for Sebastian, Madelyn, and I that will make working, keeping house, and homeschooling happen but I have no idea what that routine would possibly be. Am I being un-realistic in thinking that it could be done? I have to work, I have to pay attention to Madelyn, and I would have to help Sebastian with his lessons and take him places so he will have some social interaction with other children.
I can’t really explain why I don’t like public school. Maybe it’s the lack of individual attention or the lack of communication between the school and parents. I don’t know if I just want to shelter Sebastian from bully’s even though he doesn’t seem to have a problem with bullying, or if I feel like he is not getting a great education in public school. Could I do a better job than his teachers? I don’t know.
If you homeschool or have homeschooled PLEASE let me know how exactly you managed. Email me at alicia @ themommyinsider.com or leave your thoughts via a comment below.
If Sebastian’s teacher is reading, sorry.. it’s not you!
