Home business, home education and health challenges: what makes us tic?


People often ask me about socialising my kids and whether I think they’re seeing enough of other kids now that they’re home schooled. I must say that now that their “sense of self” is being determined more and more from within themselves than from where they fit in a particular social scenario, they’re actually becoming more and more confident.

But I do still send them to after care. The ladies who run it are lovely, and the girls love to see their friends. They don’t go every day, but probably 2-3 times a week, which is plenty. They also have play dates with friends about once a week or so, which is great. So I think they’re okay, actually.

And DD#1 is starting to relax about school, which is great. It helps, I think, that DH noticed that we had gone too far in the assessment book. The funny thing is that we were doing Grade 5/6 work in Maths and English, and she’s only in Grade 3. No wonder she was battling. I feel like a horrible mother.

I really don’t think we’re going to stick with this curriculum. It’s so simplistic and limiting. I’m not sure which one we will do,  but I think I’ll call a good friend of mine for some advice.
