Homeschool or Preschool
I am very interested in having my son home schooled. He is currently attending a private school's pre-primary. They are in a farm setting and their curriculum is based on "learn through play".
Shirley's Answer to Homeschool or Preschool
Based on my experience of homeschooling, having 6 babies and raising a family I would encourage you to bring your son home as soon as
possible in order to avoid having to undo anything that could be set
in motion by him being away from you during this time.
Some children easily become peer-dependent and have to adjust to being
back at home away from a crowd, whereas a child who is at home learns to amuse himself and entertain himself naturally, from a young age.
This is a great lifeskill that many adults today lack.
If you are planning another baby it will also be a wonderful time for
your son to have his last months alone with you, but also a time where
he will be able to share the experience of having a new sibling,
instead of being at school, wondering what he is missing out on.
I have never had an older child being jealous of a new sibling and I
think that it is partly because they are with me and get all the mommy-attention they need. I always make them feel that they are GETTING A NEW SIBLING, something to ADD to their life, not someone who takes me away from them.
You will also be avoiding any potential for peer pressure and negative
socialization that could occur in a class situation.
I recommend that you keep researching homeschooling and the benefits
and as you find answers to your questions and doubts, you will become
more confident about making your decision.
