Random Thoughts and Musings #Homeschool
So lately I've been mulling over whether or not to homeschool. I figured I'm not working might as well continue for a worthy cause. I'm only considering doing it until about 3rd grade. I'm kind of nervous though, not sure if I have what it takes to be a great teacher and give them all they need. That would be the main point of homeschooling, right?
Lately, I've been feeling a bit guilty about not wanting to run back to work. I think I would feel like I'm being stretched too thin, but all in due time. I digress. I know it would be benefit my children to have someone solely dedicated to their education and catering to their needs when it comes to learning. Some would argue that I am hindering them socially. And perhaps once they entered a larger educational institution with more children they wouldn't do as great...which then means I would be doing my children a disservice. Something to further ponder.
But let's face it. Education in this country isn't great. Teachers are overworked and underpaid. They struggle to get and give enough. If I have the chance and/or opportunity to give my children a head start why wouldn't I? Seems unfair to put such a burden on them.
My husband usually has a lengthy opinion on everything, but when it comes to things like this he's not as opinionated. I think he's giving me a chance to make my own decision and not push me one way or another. Which I totally appreciate, but also scares me.I just want to know I'm making the right decision either way. But I guess I'll never really know.
