Originally the plan had been to homeschool my youngest Unicorn, the 9 year old.
But here’s the thing, the 11 year old is miserable in traditional school.
And it’s not the school that makes him miserable, it’s the bullying.
Yet they were placed in the same classroom for the upcoming year.
After a lot of thought, and discussion, we’ve agreed that instead he’ll homeschool this year with his sister, and me. There was a brief moment of thought on his part, because I didn’t want to be the mom who forced this on him, but he quickly agreed.
And you know what he’s been doing since we made the decision?
It’s like a big weight has been lifted off his chest (mind?), and all the worry, all the sleepless nights, all the feelings, he’s sleeping off.
