I'm not worthy....I'm not worthy!
Picture me scraping and bowing as I say this to all those parents who home school their children. Either your children are tiny angels, wings and all and my child is ....shall we say, sans wings? Because this. did. not. work.
Ashley Rose was DYING to be home schooled. She begged to be home schooled. She promised she'd do her studies, her homework, her life would be amazing if ONLY SHE WERE HOME SCHOOLED!
So we yanked her out of school and plunked her headfirst into......
Wait for it......
A MONTH AND A HALF VACATION!!!
Oh sure, it was called HOME SCHOOL in OUR minds, but in HER mind? No. Not even close.
It was called I-can-sleep-in-until-11-every-day-now! And I-can-stay-up-until-midnight-every-night!. It was also called I-will-watch-every-video-on-youtube-and-every-Hannah-Montana-episode-available-until-my-eyes-bleed.
Oh, in her mind it was called many, many things. The ONE thing it was NOT called was SCHOOL.
So I bow and say I'm not worthy because I do not feel worthy, or at least equal to the challenge of homeschooling a child who does not wish to be a self starter.
All you home schooling parents out there? I applaud you. I bow before you.
And I will humbly drive my daughter back to her elementary school on Wednesday and pass her off to the school district once again.
