My Name is Nancy.
I just want to say to any and every Mother who wants or is thinking about Homeschooling your child. Do not hesitate. It is the most wonderful experience ever.
I was somewhat forced into it. Because my daughter was shy and was put into the corner on the second day of first grade. The Teacher told me she was not going to be able to put up with her crying. I simply told her that would not be a problem. I am taking my daughter home with me this minute. She said What? I said, that is just fine, I will teach my daughter at home with me.
At first I was shocked at my self. But there was no way in this world my child was going to be treated that way. I home schooled her for 3 years. She is now getting her Masters in Teaching Down syndrome Children. It is amazing what these teachers can get away with. I would not have known that had I not been a stay at home mom.
By the way, that is the other thing I want to stress to young Mom's. It is worth to go without and stay home with your children. I loved being a mom and wife more than anything. Mother's would say how can you stand to be with your kids all day. I would think to myself, why in the world do some people have children. It's a real shame.
