    Default homeschool apprehension

    I have three kids ages 15, 13 and 10. I work 50 hours a week on average and my husband works 45 hrs a week on average. Our oldest is a huge procrastinator. I think she needs something more than what her high school is offering. She doesn't care about much pertaining to school, including her grades. However, she is a voracious reader and has always been above the level of other kids her age in most school subjects, especially math. My husband is not convinced homeschooling is a good option, and I have to admit I am apprehensive myself. I do not want to do more harm than good.

    I don't know that I have the time to properly school her, and keep her moving forward. Does anyone has advice?

    Default Re: homeschool apprehension

    Welcome to the forum. I do not live in Michigan. I have homeschooled my six kids from the beginning, and four have graduated from our homeschool and gone on to college.

    Remember that homeschooling won't be right for every child. Theremight not be a reason to homeschool all of them if you only have issues with one child's public school education.

    If you homeschool, you are taking on one more thing to enforce. At least you will know immediately if your child isn't doing their work, instead of not having that information until "report card time" at public school.

    Hopefully some Michigan residents will come along with their advice.
