My son has always struggled in public school. The noise, other kids and chaos have always been a struggle. He has trouble fitting in with his peers and is often the target for bullies. He also has a learning disability called “Disability of Written Expression.” That means, in part, that he struggles with getting his thoughts into words to put on paper.A few months ago, we made the decision to pull him out and provide intensive home instruction in a safe environment. This blog will now become a journal of our year of home schooling. So far, its been exciting, hard, tiring, illuminating and exhilarating all at the same time. I can’t wait to start sharing it with you and hearing from others in the same situation!
