that now have our difficult children attending school from home. I know there are various & sundry reasons. However, I have to ask those of you that are in the same boat as I am what was behind your decision. I have to say kt being home schooled (online by a charter high school) was not my first ... heck it wasn't my last choice. I felt the SD forced me into this situation by not providing a safe & appropriate learning environment for ktbug. Saying that, this time around I didn't have it in me to take on the SD once again (our SD usually shudders when they see me coming). Was it sheer exhaustion or frustration with your SD that led you to this decision? ktbug needs to be out in the community, using her social & independent living skills. She needs contact with the outside world which kt's staff & I are working on. How are you keeping up with social skills with your difficult children? What outside activities, etc are keeping them in the loop? Just curious.
