Our oldest is 29 and we took her out of public school in the middle of her 5th grade year. My husband was not for it at first- saying, “Diane, it may be a valid way to school, but not you with our daughter. You two clash now, it will never work”.
The last day before “Winter Break” (not allowed to be called Christmas), I drove my daughter to the bus stop since it was pouring rain, took a deep breath and with trepidation blurted out, knowing how volatile this girl could be, “You know your dad and I have been discussing homeschooling you, we have decided, and today when you come home you will not be going back – this will be your last day.”
