He's never been to daycare, preschool, or any classes where his little sis and I couldn't stay. Neither has his little sis.
He is 5, by the way. DD is 2. Since DS has exhibited an ability to read, write and do math well above grade level, it seems forcing him into kindergarten would be quite a disservice.
It took awhile to get DH on board with homeschooling, but he's now fully supportive, even of unschooling.
There have been several threads very recently on this same line. I guess everyone's thing about it!
Posted in this August thread. I'll quote it in a sec. My editor isn't liking my clever shortcuts today.
Freedom-- freedom from some things, freedom to do others, freedom of time, all kinds of freedom.
I had all other kinds of reasons to want to start, but what makes me happy and keeps us going is just this.
Give me a few minutes while I caffeinate.
My reasons have changed over the years but essentially my square peg wont fit into a round hole. ;)

My DS (who isn ow 5) was having too many issues at daycare. They had us so stressed out with having a very active little one that they almost convinced us something was wrong with him. After telling them to go 'screw themselves' (sorry!) Hubby and I enrolled him in a home schooling Christian based program that my aunt suggested. It was absolutely the best decision we ever made. He is THRIVING and I wouldn't have it any other way.
there are about 7 kids in the program and the teacher was a math major plus she also tutors all the way to college. My kid is so far ahead of where the kindergarteners are in public school and I couldn't be prouder. We are seriously considering leaving him in her program for 1st grade as well.
