    A Good Reason for Home Schooling!

    My partner and I plan home schooling for our little girl!

    Here is another darned good reason this is becoming more and more a wise decision on our part >

    Girl abused by classmates

    Not a nice story and from a parents point of view, very very worrying imho.

    We don't live in Wales and I have no idea where this happened but I will do what I can to ensure my daughter gets educated at home and this story in the link just cements my/our resolve!

    I hope your a person who has a lot of patience. As this is not as simple as alot of people think. Requires you to still do 6+ hours of work with your child and if your in a decent to good school district you have to turn in your reports weekly and all the major tests are held in private at a district school or office.

    If you have the time and knowledge this is a great way to educate your child. Down fall they will lose there ability to interact with people in there own age group and tend to be more able to interact with adults. This can have bad out come also with a child acting to mature around the wrong people.

    I know your urge to protect your daughter however these things happen every place not just school. Its better in my opinion to keep open channels of communications and always make time for your kid when you two can sit down and maybe do homework together and talk about school, kids or other. Don't get made at the small things as this can make the child not want to talk keep an open in these talks no matter what they are about.

    Enough of my ramblings, Be sure to weigh the bad against the good when making a decision like this.

    Sounds like things are geared up differently for you there in the US Sir as we have looked ino things and it is far simpler here.

    We plan the interaction with others of similar age group around activities like martial arts and various socially interactive groups, but also to have Home economics/cookery in conjunction with grandmothers and Piano lessons (& the likes) and advanced Maths with Grandfathers.

    We have already begun on this plan and out three and half year old (near 4 year old) is already more advanced with English. Counting (basic Maths) and many things as compared to all the other children in the neighbourood of a similar age according to everyone who encounters her.

    She already knows the alphabet and many numbers and is grasping addition and subtraction as well as which she can spell many words including my name and her mothers name among other things yet none of the children her age attending school are any where near this as far as we can ascertain.

    She interacts with many children including neighbours and cousins and tbh I think our more personal and one on one interaction is standing her in good stead going by the feedback thus far from everyone who comes into contact.

    This includes her manners and her general behaviour as well as her thirst for knowledge and understanding.

    Every and any question she has gets answered in a simple way as well as comprehensively and elaborated on in order to keep her interested and I do not believe any class of 30+ children could afford her the same nor could it be bettered by a tutor who is not as caring perhaps that should even be as careful in regards to our daughters education.

    As I opened with though it is a lot simpler to persue this course of action here in the UK if you are armed with the correct information as there are relatively few rules as compared to what it sounds like you would be subject to where you are i the US. which I am assuming by the reference I read to the word diaper which is a nappy here and I saw referred to in your Blog entry (I think that was where I saw it).

    Our daughter was born at home via water birth and breast fed and I think other than a few subjects generally we are quite capable of offering her a better education than the UK state system can do.

    I plan childrens books to teach English, spelling, grammar, the meaning of words and the such so my daughter not only knows the difference between their and there, to, too and two she will have one of the firmest groundings in things like grammar, as being a part in the process in producing those books she will gain amazing insight into such things.
