Ben took a bit of convincing to take out of school.
I use to ask him every couple of weeks how he felt about homeschooling and whether he preferred it over going to school. For the first six months (de-schooling) he use to shrug his shoulders and say ‘I don’t know’.
It was a turning point for all of us after the 6 month mark when he said he preferred homeschooling.
And today he said to me (as we were passing a bunch of school kids), “I don’t understand why kids go to school.”
He’s one happy boy at the moment and clearly appreciates homeschooling, not just from the comment above, but his general behaviour/attitude is pretty awesome.
Not all times are good/easy. It’s worth writing down about the good and the bad!
