Have you ever just wanted to quit?
My middle one (2nd grade) is pretty smart and pretty much on grade level with everything. She is very much a "middle" child, constantly fighting/picking at her sisters instead of doing her work.
My baby is 5 (K) and is ahead for her age. She reads really great and understands many number concepts, most likely from listening to her sisters for 4 years.
I'm just really tired of feeling like I only yell all day (it's probably a bit of an exaggeration!). I spend more time saying "leave her alone" and "get back to your work" than I actually do teaching. I just wonder if they would behave better having someone else instruct them.
Here's the thing...I am absolutely AGAINST public school. I am a product of it. Being a homeschooler, I am fairly knowledgeable about what is going on in education in this country and I just can't stomach sending my girls there. I would love to send them to private Christian school but since we are a one-income family, and I haven't worked since we brought our baby home, affording to send them out is pretty much not an option either.
Does anybody understand? I need some help!
