My name is Melissa, I am a 21 year old mother of two, I decided to start home school my son next year for a number of reasons but the most obvious one is because of the large classes in the local school. I went to enroll him into grade Prep (Victoria, Australia) but his preschool teacher wanted to hold him down because they didn't think he was ready. He can count to 20, knows his opposites, colors, shapes etc and she said he would have to stay down. I asked why and she said because he doesn't have good communication skills. Well I always saw school as a place of learning. So I am homeschooling him. I have a 14 month old who I will be putting into child care. Is anyone else thinking of homeschooling? Would love to hear anything people want to share.. I am all very new to this!
