problems

Postby armywife » Mon Feb 06, 2006 6:38 pm

I have had so many problems with people saying becuase i have special needs children that i wont have time for my other children to home school. And maybe they are not getting what they need. I have had social services at my door step becuase of these small minded people. I have complied with all the rules and regulations. I need help and would like peoples opinions.

If you are being harassed just because social services thinks you can't possibly handle homeschooling all your children at once, then you need legal help, the sooner the better. Contact your local and state homeschool groups:

well social services had to close the case due to i was in compliance with all stae rules. home schooling is going good, the kids love it and so do i. but i got to tell you there are alot of small minded people out there that think home schooling is bad. i just filed a complaint against a army capt due to it, he said my children were handicapped and belonged in a school, that i wasnt trained to be a teacher. I disagree I raised these children and know them better then anyone. But god has prevailed....

I'm glad! Just remember to keep your records and keep up with state requirements. Special needs kids are a blessing and caring for them might take more energy, but it's not going to stop you from caring for all your children.
