This is a real life “WWYD” moment but without John Quinones.
I have very outgoing, people loving children. And that is an understatement. Have you met them yet? If you’re not sure then you haven’t because they would tell you who they are and ask you to play with them in 2.5 seconds.
So, anyway…. We are planning on homeschooling for a myriad of reasons (and to all my teacher friends it has nothing to do with teachers or the school systems in Cedar Rapids) for the first part of their schooling lives. But here is the question, what would you do if your daughter talks about going to school all. the. time. Not just here and there and pretends to play school but actually talks about going to school non-stop. She gets “school” time at home right now and loves it but she actually wants to go and have a teacher and wear a backpack and be around her “friends” (yep, she already wants school friends and she just turned four).
I am signing her up for dance this year and am hoping that that maybe calms her down on the school front. We also play with other children as much as possible. So she is getting plenty of interaction with children besides her siblings. I just don’t know what to do. We talk about how she is going to stay home and go to school but she is continually asking to actually go to school.
So here is where we are at:
A) Homeschool her like planned but maybe send her to school a couple days a week for “specials” during the day.
B) Homeschool her like planned (the coop I am thinking we will join offers one day a week at a school through them).
C) Send her to school.
Has anyone else been in the predicament? Or have you been the homeschooled child who would have rather be in actual school? I know I have time before any decisions need to be made but I am just starting to question what to do.
