Background: DD is 7.5 and is in her 5th year at a waldorf school. She attended starting in parent/toddler, then Morning Garden, K, 1st and now 2nd. Her current teacher was also her 1st grade teacher.
So this year started with anxiety at home before school even started. Now, three weeks later, she is having at least one day, sometimes several days per week when she doesn't want to get up to go school, or once we get to school, doesn't want to stay. She has only had one major meltdown and that was a day we were already there, she was already playing and I was about to leave. I ended up walking with her to her cubby and then leaving her with her teacher.
Describing her actions, it doesn't sound like anything major, even to me, but I just have this gut feeling that something more is going on with her. It might "only" be anxiety, but we have never had these kinds of days, and the struggle that we are having now. Her teacher reports that she is having good days at school, and was fine after I left her the day of the meltdown. We have a meeting scheduled next week to talk more in depth. But I am trying to decide if I should leave her in school, or take her out and homeschool.
Has anyone taken a child out of school to homeschool?
