Considering homeschooling my son, he has ADHD & ODD - possibly bi-polar (explosive temper) and it happens 100% of the time at school. I have never seen an episode - but I have heard it in the background when the schools calls. I'm a single mother, but I think I'm going to discuss with my boss me working from home most of the day and coming in late in the day for a few hours - it would work in my field, just having a home office. My son is 7 years old and has extremely low self esteem due to his behavior in front of his peers that he can't seem to control. He has already spent time in an alternative learning enviornment and it broke my heart to see him crying every day before school - alternative school is like a mini prision in my opinion. Does anyone else have experience with home schooling? He participates in extracurricular activities (karate, all seasonaly sports, Cub Scouts) and we have a close network of friends. I would join a local support group so he could play with their kids also - so I don't feel his socializing would be compromised. Actually, I feel is socializing right now is very negative - kids are mean. They don't forget, they tease and harass him. I'm just tired. So tired.
