Loving My Life as Wife, Mother and Grandmother

Wednesday, September 17, 2008


Today I have been pondering what would make a homeschool Mother send her child back to public school? Would it be that she gives up? Or would it be that when he or she reaches a certain age they give them a choice? I cannot fathom sending mine back when public school was one of the main reasons that I came to homeschool. I'm just wondering if there would be anything that would make any of my homeschool friends change there mind and send there children to public school? I know socialization would probably be on the top of the list. I sometimes feel that my youngest child probably doesn't get as much playtime with others his age as some would feel necessary. But, I don't feel he is neglected or unsocialized either. I feel he gains a lot from spending time with other people regardless of their age. Some of my happiest memories are not necessarily from time spent with kids that were my age. I have some wonderful memories from senior citizens that I knew through church as I was growing up. They had the most interesting and beautiful stories and advice to share. Those are the memories that I cling too. I always got along almost better with older people than myself. I don't think I missed out on anything because of it though. I'm not even sure that I want mine spending endless hours with the public school kids..My experiences with his exposures have not been good ones..Any thought on any of this would be so greatly appreciated.......Jerelene
