I see sooooo many post about other plp's children reading and writing at such a young age..say 4,5. Then I see some who's child is 6,7,8,9 who are not reading and writing. And i'm so confused as to what to do with my 5 year old. He turned 5 in November, so according to the school system he would start kindergarten in the fall. Yet if i decide to keep here at home...which i will probably do....i'm not sure how far to push him. At this moment he is not interested in doing anything with letter or numbers. He does say he wants to learn his letters so he can read game instructions online. So when we do something with letters he right out refuses. I've tried workbooks, glue and noddles, foil, all kind of crafty ways, toys, blocks. Nothing, he refuses. So i'm concerned that a traditional program just wouldnt work for us. So i've thought about unschooling, but i'm not sure he would ever get any where. I've been looking at Sonlight, it sparks my interests as it's more reading, or outl oud reading on my part. Maybe he owuld be more interested in that, as he likes for me to read to him. I'm so confused and looking for advice or direction.
