As we start preparing my son for homeschool. He keeps asking to go to the school that I drop him off and leave. He went to daycare about a year ago but I don't believe he can remember that. Unfourchanetly he's not old enough for t-ball or anything. What do I do?
Hmmmm, that's a tough one! We live just two blocks from a school and Reilly would ask me, "Why can't I go to school there?" a lot as we would drive by. I'd just tell her, "Well, Mama and Papa think it's better for us to have school at home!" and then switch the conversation around to how much fun we'll have, the things that we'll get to do that school kids don't get to do (go to the zoo whenever we want, school time is actually shorter, etc.) I would just really talk up the fun of homeschooling. It seemed to work after awhile, and now I can't really remember the last time she asked. (I'm sure she has, but it's not as often anymore.)
She's also old enough now that I can bring in the fact that we, as parents, know what is best for her. Your son may be little young to understand that, but it's something to have in your "arsenal" as he gets older!
I don't know if any of that helped! Hope so!
