Im facing a dilemma. I have three beautiful daughters ages nine eleven and thirteen. Ive been divorced from their father since my oldest was six. Every year we go through the same struggle. He does not want the children to attend public school. He wants them to be homeschooled. Every year I consider it, then I change my mind. He gets angry threatens to take them from me, doesnt contact them for a couple of months...then it calms down. He doesnt involve himself in their education because he doesnt want them in public school. The children do so well in school. All are honor students, top of their class. It makes me sad when he doesnt get excited over their accomplishments. But if someone were to tell him something negative, he picks up the phone to call me right away.
Im considering homeschooling this year because I cannot take doing this alone anymore.
i need his help and involvement. This past school year I felt so overburdened with trying to be on two PTAs, atttend all of the school functions etc I ,have the option to work from home but even that will be a struggle if I homeschool the children. Im very torn
