Hmm, I think all HS kids 'say' they want to go to PS - I think my youngest had a skewed view of what that meant, he thought it was riding the bus (fun) to a building where he would take all his friends on the playground all day....
bottom line for me? I don't let my kids make life altering decisions. They have no way of understanding the consequences or repercussions. So once I said, nope we homeschool, they shrugged and said, "ok" then we rode the city bus so they would have the bus experience..lol.
hi mamabear, ive had a few social kids that ive homeschooled since under school age, and they've never wanted to go to public school, so maybe that wont happen! even if she does, gotta be honest with her let her know thats not what your all are doing, letting her know shes got it better off than they do! imagine going to school for 8 hours(i dont know how long they school) some place else! and at home it only takes 2-3 hours!
Since she's only 2, you have plenty of time and lot's of ways to socialize her! lol...my DD is almost 3 and a half and she loves to play with other kids when we do extra activities. I'll be enrolling her in dance class this fall for something fun to do and she is always playing with friends...I wouldn't worry about it! Good Luck!
Since she is only 2, she will follow your lead more than anyone else's. Play with her and show her how much fun learning can be when at home and out and about. As long as you do not make pb that much of a big deal, it's likely she won't either.
My 7yr old goes through the "I want to go to ps" phase every now and then. Usaully after being around his ps cousins. Apparently, he told his uncle that he wanted to go to regular school. He told my son he would talk to us. He talked to dh today about it. My husband told him, that we are set on homeschooling. Bil told dh how he didn't learn anything when their mom hs'd him, etc...
We talked with our son, explained our reasons to homeschool him and told him all the great things we get to do while everyone else is in school. He quickly said he wants to stay home.
