Hi there, I'm new here at this section.
I'm Michele and my dd wants to homeschool. Her teacher is a really mean woman from Scotland. If she calls on you in class and you don't know the answer, she will say stuff like 'come on, this isn't rocket science!' She's so insensitive.
Anyway my dd has had enough and refuses, flat out, to go. Locks herself in the bathroom.
I'm not the homeschooling type but I guess I have to start to be. I feel absolutely sick about this.
Oh and all her friends now are acting like teenagers and she is NOT. She is also older than them. Also she just got her period a couple months ago before the others who act older than her. They are into boys/ computers/cel phones etc. She just wants to go build a fort and play still. She is 12 and in grade 6 and they are just turning 12.
Any advice would be Greatly appreciated.
extra reading -
another example of mean teacher - a boy was off for a couple days because of sickness AND a death in family. The mom emailed her to explain. Boy shows up at school and she's all 'Finally you came back!' Always with a snarl on her face.
My dd missed a couple days of school at the end of Sept. because she was feeling this way as well.
She goes to a private school and we paid for the year already!! dang.
