My youngest has shown some apprehension about middle school, which is normal, I know. I have apprehension about middle school too; having had three boys already go through it. I did not enjoy the experience. We live in a good school district so it is not the education; it is the social crap. DS is a sweet, sensitive, shy boy. He isn’t the most popular, doesn’t have a lot of friends, is intelligent, has ADHD, is afraid of flying insects, is wise, isn’t team sports inclined and I just love him to pieces. Part of me thinks that life is hard enough, why put him through middle school. Anyway, I have looked at homeschooling before in a general way as I find the whole thing fascinating. This year, however, I am going to investigate it further. I plan to attend our areas Catholic Homeschool Conference in June. In looking at different methods of educating a person I believe that I prefer the unit study method. I plan to start accumulating that type of information in the event we decide to go that route.
There. I made is public.
