Ten years ago I began a new journey. It was a decision my husband and I made after we saw how much our child, who has Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, was struggling in school.
He had started kindergarten at our neighborhood school. Every day he had “bad behavior “and I was receiving calls from the school. He could not sit still, stop talking, or focus in the classroom. They were punishing him by taking away his recess. It was a vicious cycle.
The only thing my son was learning was to hate school.
I was already a stay-at-home mom with two younger kids, so we decided to put all of our energy into homeschooling him. Ten years later, I am a homeschooling mom to 3 children, all with disabilities. Here is how our family has approached homeschooling:
