Just want to give you all an update! I talked to dp again and really tried to find my voice. I quoted Alfie Kohn (Thank you NHmomOF2!) and he now agrees w/ me!! So this is ds's last week of school! We still have the meeting with the teacher this week but I'm decided and it feel so good. So thank you all soo much for helping me with this!!!

yay! Glad you came to a decison and are feeling better about it! I think the meeting is still important just so those issues can be addressed with the teacher.

Sarita-
Yay, a happy ending... Glad I (and Alfie) could help! Now that you've made the decision and still feel good about it you know it was the right thing for your family.

I'm somewhat undecided about this. I am on the wait list for a 'family home day care' that incorporates different aspects of many schooling styles. I absolutely loved it when I visited and it's not a requirement to go 5 days a week (when I first put my ds in school I really thought the 5 day theory was a good idea and maybe it is for some kids, just not mine) It's also a 2 block walk away from my house! But it may be awhile before he gets in so in the mean time I think I am going to do some sort of homeschooling or at least have a little more stucture to our day. The spanish teacher at his school is part of a playgroup I belong to and teaches once a week to them as well so I'm glad he will still get that because he's picking it up so quickly and I think he really enjoys it. Ultimately, I don't know if I'll homeschool. Mostly because I'm a slacker and don't know that I would do him that good by doing it. But who knows, seems like my ideas about things are ever evolving.
