I officially had enough of our public school system and "pecking orders" and have withdrawn my difficult child from public education. We made the decision last week and what a relief. I haven't seen him this happy in a very long time! We are using the Village raising the child approach, as my husband and mom in law and I are all working together (since my husband and I work) I think it will take some time, but I am happy and he is happy and life is grand for now. We have also joined a 4-H group!! YIpee!
