DD turned 3 in March and is at about a 5 or 6 year old level mentally, verbally and emotionally. (Actually, verbally she is more like at a 10 year old level.)
I am getting a lot of flak from family who insist that I should be putting her into special programs. I homeschool DD and refuse to put her in school, let alone an expensive gifted program. To me, the argument seems obvious that she's done this well with just me teaching her, so why ruin a good thing? As they say in Texas where I'm from: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
My family is stressing me out, though, telling me that I am doing her a disservice by holding her back.
Isn't there anything I can show to them or tell them to get them off my back about it? I know DD will do well homeschooling because she loves learning and pursues what she likes. I make sure to keep her entertained and busy enough that she never feels bored or frustrated. Now what can I do to tell them I'm doing a good job and it's none of their business?
