first, there is no way i'm sending my daughter to public school (at this age, based on her begging, etc. its just not right for our family at this time). but every day she begs to go to 'real public school!' she says she wants to go for the WORK.. she WANTS to sit at a desk all day, so she says..
she does her homeschool 'work' - she loves the activities we do, and i've started letting her bring 'work' to do while we're out too cause she wants to do school all.day.long. she is exhausting me - i had planned on 2-3 hours a day MAX split up with an activity here and there.. sure, we just started, but.. she is driving me insane!! now that school 'started' she won't play, she just wants to do school and when she is not doing school she is begging me to send her to 'real school' .. when i have to do some chores, or try to get her to help me with laundry or nurse the baby or whatever she throws a fit and generally makes things difficult for me until i get her doing more school..
will she stop? even out ? will this wear off? will she ever realize that homeschool is 'real' school ? she doesn't ask about seeing other kids or any of that - i was really looking forward to her being able to still play with her siblings and be a kid by being homeschooled but she suddenly wants nothing to do with it, my 3 yr old is really acting out because she won't play with him..
do all 5 year olds just want what they don't have?
