I teach my children to be kind, to be loving, to be compassionate all in an attempt to make sure they are worthwhile human beings. When they go to school they know to be nice to others, raise their hand before speaking and to learn- unfortunately not every child is like this. Since my daughter’s started preschool we’ve wrestled with the “mean girls” of Pre K but now I’m seriously debating if I should move her to a private school, along with her younger brother.
A part of me says, “Hell year!” I see everyday the antics in (some) public schools and I definently don’t want my children to ever experience anything like that. However, a part of me says that she has to learn to “take up” for herself and next year send her closer to home at our neighborhood school. Then a small part of me says to home school them so I can protect them from this cold, cold world. My plan has been to be able to work until my oldest son (whose in 7th grade) gets into 9th grade. I need to be home to make sure that we don’t have to worry about carpool or other teenage “influences” in high school. Now as I think about it I could homeschool the two youngest ones. Heck, I’ve taught school for the past 11 years and for subjects like Math, I can go for out side help.
Right now I’m researching and thinking about all of my options.I just know that I want the best for my children and that may mean leaving public and going to private school. What do you guys think?
