My daughter who is 9 years old is in a private Christian School. We love it, or should I say, I love it! My daughter has always told me that she hates school from 1st grade on. She has always been a A-B Honor R., and now in third grade, which has gotten a little bit harder for her, particularly math, she is now making C's and A-B. She seems frustrated! I have went to the teacher and we have gotten her extra help. I believe that my daughter really does hate school but she loves to be at home. I also believe that she thinks that she will not have to do as much work, WRONG! We do attend church and I have even had her in a Sunday School Class, which she did not want to be there either, so we just attend church services. We do have friends that come to the house to play, so she does do well with others. My church also has a group of homeschool moms who plan field trips together, which seems great. My problem is that I feel that I am not good enough to teach my daughter. I am scared! I have seen so many options to the Christian Homeschool Programs, that it seems overwhelming to choose. I also wanted to add that my daughters school does the Bob Jones Curriculm. Does anyone have an opinion on Bob Jones C.? And could someone help me with choosing a good program and are the DVD's, Live Streaming or CD's better. I am so intemidated on teaching her from a book, that I might not be able to teach her as well as a teacher from a DVD? I am so confused! Could someone please help?
