We have taken our 6 year old out of school. He was refusing to go...much drama and school was not helpful us.
Major anxiety. So here I am.
I won't go into the upheaval that got us here as I would rather focus on getting school started.
My plan is to reconnect and get us back to a trusting place before I start school (we are doing well in that department).
I am very interested in a waldorfish approach, but I admit I am not 100 up on homeschooling or its variations.
I also have a 3yr and 1yr old.
I try not to be online researching all the time as I have been using it to escape and avoid.
Money is definitely an issue, and I will need to go back to work in the next couple of years. We live in Northern Canada in a semi-isolated area. There are some homeschoolers here, but they do not have an online group so it is difficult to connect.
I am agnostic and not familiar with religious content in the homeschool programs that have been recommended to me so far.
We boarder on forested area and enjoy being outside for the two weeks of the year it is warm enough (exaggerating...but not by much, lol)
So, my point is...
I need some form of structured or logically sequenced curriculum. I am ADD, but I am bf so no meds...I can go off on a tangent like nobodys business, or on the flipside waaaay too much detail.
The structure is to keep me on track, some kind of boundaries that I can be free and creative within- with out being chaotic :)
I can get some funding in September, but I would like to do a K/1 on my own...he was part way through grade 1.
i am just trying to start a routine/rhythm....because I have always been a wing it sort of girl....my kids do not seem to revel in chaos as i have learned to do.
Thanks all <3
