I am currently in need of information reguarding Home Schools in Ohio that I can get my child into quickly. I would love some feedback on some schools that have been successful for other mothers in Ohio. My daughter is 11 yrs. old and started a new school this yr. (Same school district, different building). She cries histerically when she has to go to school and tells me there is nothing wrong. I have recently taken her to the Dr. for them to tell me she is depressed and put her on medicine for this. As a mother, I am EXTREMELY scared for my daughter, this is just not NORMAL behavior AT ALL. She is begging to be HS but I am in such a rush I am afraid I am goin to get in to something that is gonna hurt her more than help. I have also heard that it takes a while to get everything set up through her PS before I can take her out to homeschool her. Is this true? I feel as if I am doing MORE harm to her by having to force her to go to PS because of the limit they have on days the children can miss. I am grasping at every straw I can to help my daughter overcome her fears and tourment. I am also a mother of 5 children, 3 biological and 2 step. This is starting to weigh myself, husband and other children down in a big way. We are SO very worried about her. Maybe I have went into to much detail here and I am VERY sorry if I have, I just am concerned that if I do not get something done quickly, that it will start affecting my other children in a negative way also, as I have already saw signs in my oldest daughter. And if you homeschool one...do you think it is the best to homeschool ALL? Or since I have never homeschooled before, do it for the one who needs it the most and concentrate on the others later? Thank you so much to all of you who are generous enough to respond to I know what sounds like such a crazy situation. I just feel so very helpless.
