Yes, I am indeed!
I love schooling my children, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy, and well… have more of a purpose when I think of the ‘not-so-good’ days (you know what I mean?).
But, Junayd is going to turn 5 in November inshaa`Allaah, and we are fast approaching the end of the school year. Although he could remain part-time at his montessori nursery while being homeschooled part-time until October, I’m being told that I should find him a school now!
Who said I wanted to send him to school full-time? I’m having a harder time because… well, hubby and I do not see eye-to-eye on the homeschooling thing. Let’s just say that it is not only just us mothers who get stick for not sending our children to school, fathers feel the pressure too; but we have to learn to resist pressure, don’t we?
I am more than willing to step down from some of the many projects I am involved in just to school my children, but I’ve just got this major setback that won’t let me move forward.
It’s not that my hubby doesn’t see the benefit from homeschooling, although he hasn’t said so in many words, I do believe that he is impressed by just how much Junayd has learnt, and how much his little sister is now learning. But maybe it’s fear of not conforming… you know, having to answer the dreaded question: ‘Which school does he go to?’.
