The reasons for stating "I've decided in putting him in two classes at a magnet school", I can read and find the classes that he would be interested in...They're classes he's very interested in....a dinosaur science class and a self progressive reading class with lots of books (which he loves). I know I couldn't make him take a class he wasn't interested in. With his special needs- majory sensory issues, I still need to addressed and guide him throughout his day which is often drag for him. I guess in that sense, I feel unschooling is contradicting our life style. Things like dressing himself, washing hands, flushing toliet...ect. I try not to force to much on him or overload him but I do want him to try his hardest. So yes, in some sense, I feel with his personality we're part time unschooling. Because some of the things, I almost to a point, force him to try. I can't imagine how hard it will be throughout his day without a distinct schedule with waking and sleeping type of issues. If we fall off a schedule...we could both become very lazy in just everyday life. I'm more worried not having that time when school starts and the bus comes to get us movin in the day. This is another reason for the magnet classes.
I guess all in all, I'm just nervous and looking for some conversation to smooth my fears.
