Definitely a sad story (and I laugh at it too!), but it really has taught me to not do that to my kids. My oldest son is in PS because he loves it and is thriving. He will NOT be there after 6th grade because I will not send him to a public school in middle and high - he will have a choice of private christian school or homeschool. He knows Scotty is homeschooling and he keeps telling me "but mommy, I have to go to regular school so I can win my awards!" OKAY! The story above scares the pants off me when I think of my baby getting all caught up in awards. SOOOOOOO.....I am going to get trophies for my Scotty at the end of the year - hard worker, "best homeschooled boy on earth"...LOL If awards motivate kids, then awards they will get. But I am not going to base it on him Being the best....just so long as he is DOING his best!
Hopefully, Bryce will see these awards and decided...hey...homeschooling is cool too! Oh, a girl can dream, can't she.
Totally off topic, I know.
