I have a 12 yr old loving public school and she will stay there. I have a 4 yr old we are thinking we would like to homeschool. She is incredibly bright and focused, but has some health needs that have her feeling lousy a lot, so there are times of the day she needs to just be able to feel bad, and times/days she feels much better and absorbs things like a sponge. We also have a 19 month old who has the same health condition. She is also wonderfully bright but because she was sick much earlier, she struggles with some sensory issues, is in loads of OT and feeding therapy, etc. She requires a level of attention I never thought possible. I literally cannot sit down to do a single focused activity with my 4 year old, ever, without my 1 yr old destroying things or getting frustrated that she can't do it and starts banging her head on the floor. Our hope, of course, is that both of them get to a point the feel better, that our 1 yr old continues improving, etc. We also have our 4th and final due this spring.
I guess I am wondering....if I can't even get through a 15 min painting project or a 10 min round of freaking playdough right now, what on earth makes me think I can homeschool my 4 yr old with my 1 yr old "helping" :)....any wisdom?
