my LO is still very young but I am already thinking of what to do when he is ready for school. I have always been fascinated by homeschooling! I have seen great examples of well adjusted home schooled kids through family and friends.
My fiance is on the fence. While I am happy living outside of the box he is not (opposites DO attract lol) . He was not really into school work and chose trade over college.... He is a hands on guy. He really loved his high school experience because of his friends and the things that they did. He is really concerned that if we home school LO that he wont have the social experiences that he had. I am the opposite, I was VERY shy in school and had a hard time making friends. I do not believe that school is the only place to find company. As an adult I am much more social and have great friends that I have made through work, college and other friends.
I know that home schooling will not make my kid socially akward or a shut in. I will happily join one of our many local home school networks and encourage, if not require him, to join some sort of group activity. I need help convincing my fiance that while our LO may have different experiences than he had, he will have many opportunities to make friends and have a wonderfull childhood. Any advice would be great, thank you!
