My kids are 6.5ds, 4.5dd, and 18mth ds. We are a one income family. Things get tight more often than not. But keeping ours kids out of school is something we are committed to. So we make it work. I have over the last year delved into a couple of curriculums for them but I'm moving back down the scale towards unschooling again and though I'm happy with this choice I have discovered a new concern.
What if the worst happens as in, what if something were to happen to me before my kids are able to really hold their own? Not necessairily be adults but old enough to not need round-the-clock supervision. DH would have to keep working so staying home to unschool wouldn't be an option. Chances are he would put them in school feeling he had no other choice.
I haven't found my solution yet as I just thought of this. We have my parents next door but I don't think it wise to assume they'll be around. And maybe school is the back-up........but I'd rather not if it could be helped at all.
So, do you have a plan? What if something major rocks your unschooling boat? What's your back-up?
