Home Schooling is Not an Option

OMG one day at home with both the younger children sealed the deal- I am not home schooling.

I just can't do it.

The two of them together is a nightmare- screams, fights, the younger one (the possibly ADHD one) will not leave the older child alone. She would never be able to learn a thing...

And I would probably stroke out or give myself a heart attack just trying to do the homeschooling thing.

My patience is gone, life is a constant Ferris wheel of stress- round and round, up and down here we go on the stress wheel.

So that means I have got to find a way to get her released from her current school district and enrolled in another.

Fun times...

Just a thought...would you be able to maybe put her info under a different address (well once you get a friend or family member to okay it) - the school district doesn't need to know where she really lives but that way maybe you can enroll her in a school in a different area.

I don't know if it'll be effective but I just wanted to throw it out there.

The schools around her have really cracked down on that- I would have to change my driver's license and provide two bills with in my name like heat, electric, rent, mortgage, etc.

So complicated and I am not putting someone else's heat or elctric bill in my name even if I could.

We are currently looking into buying a very cheap house
($12, 000)and using that address but worried the house might end up being a money pit to deal with (taxes and all that)

plus we don't exactly have that much cash laying around and found out no one offers mortgages for less that $45,000 some not under $100,000.

So that's how complex things are for us right now- every time we look in a new direction we get slammed into a wall

I wish I had something to suggest. I'm thinking of you and hoping things fall into place for all of you ASAP.

Thanks J for your well wishes- right now we can use all the good vibes sent this way.

Oh, lady do I ever feel your pain! My 9 year old has learning & ADHD issues and we were (luckily) able to move into a good school district that is helping us to take her in hand. It took nearly a year of me pulling out my hair though to finally get the move to go through. I am sending good thoughts to you and yours... however little comfort it may be. Stay strong!

Thanks Rae, I am working hard to understand my child and hopefully get into a school district that actually cares about its children.

The school district I am currently in is so damn screwed up it is a nightmare.

Westwood Heights sucks big time, they are such an embarrassment- in the news all the time negatively. I've never seen so much drama in a school system. And none of it has to do with the kids it's all the adminstrators acting liek idiots. No one cares about the kids.
