We took the plunge.
It still feels surreal and we are still being hounded by the authorities but our child is safe with us home.
He is learning to unlearn if that makes sense…..you know, you get used to the system and now we are unlearning the system while keeping things afloat for this unexpected change of events.
I am not prepared!
I have only just found what I feel is the perfect fit for our family and am still learning on how best to go about it; let alone having a complete plan. But we are striving and working.
It’s been tough 2 days, yet at the same time oh so much easier!
The anger is still there, but ever so slightly diminished already. For 7 months I have endured the children’s continuous teasing of each other and like a miracle it is practically gone already. It is the first thing I noticed with great relief! But the biggest relief you could see it in my son when on Monday he realised that for real he was staying home. For that whole morning there was not a single fight in the house!
Today it was different, the children are now trying to get their own bearings and G is de-stressing so a lot of pent up feelings are coming out as tears. So tomorrow we are holding a family meeting to help everyone and get some footing on the ground.
And since home education is not really yet on the table, I have to look for alternative schools for next year.
