E now 10 1/2 has been out of school for 2 1/2 yrs, and I still dread every day we have to homeschool. I am struggling to find a system that fills her needs, my needs and my active 2 yr olds needs. I have tried unschooling, E just got bored and started showing signs of depression ( I don't think linked to the unschooling, just motivational issues), I've tried the formal timetable 9-3 approach and I hate that. I want E to see ALL of life is learning, that you never stop. The other day she was disappointed to realise that it was friday and we had to do some work- this is not what I want for her. Yet she has fell so behind since coming out of school and she feels embarassed when her 8 yr old friends tell her what they've learnt at school, she then thinks she's stupid because she doesn't know this stuff (not that they'll remember much of it once they've left school) How do you find a system for learning that meets all your family's needs??
