My daughter is 3 and my son is 1 but I am trying to research as much as possible now before we start. I have a problem in that their father is will be graduating as a teacher the year my daughter begins school. Our daughter is adopted from Ethiopia and our son is biological.
I originally considered h'schooling because I know that boys benefit more from beginning formal schooling when they are a little older. After some research, I now want to homeschool both to help provide strong moral (Christian) grounding for both children.
My husband's family are very anti-homeschooling giving the reason that although the children might be ahead academically, they miss out socially. What has other people's experiences been.
I was unsure as to whether to post on adoption forum, but hoping to get some advice from parents who have adopted and are homeschooling on this forum.
Is h/schooling the wrong decision because of my husband's career choice?
