My son does homeschooling but he is behind on his work due to billing issues. (My husband has been laid off so money became really tight) I will be able to pay the bill tomorrow if they are open. They have not been open for the last few days. What is the best and fastest way to get him caught up on all his work? I am scared to death that he will not finish on time. I want him to get done at the same time school gets out. I really need some advice here.
I am a crunchy stay at home mom to a , , and a my husband is in our eyes.
I'd recommend doing more work. Either, having him attend "school" 1-2 hours longer a day until he's caught up, or keeping the hours the same, but doing school on the weekends until he's caught up, and/or skipping any holidays or breaks that are typical (President's Day, Spring Break, etc).
I'm not sure how far behind he is, but if it's only a week or two, I don't see the harm in that week or two coming out of summer break either. However, if it's months then that could be an issue.
If affording homeschooling is going to continue to be a problem though, I would recommend finding a no charge homeschooling program, or enrolling him in a local public school.
I would draw out a schedule with a tight routine in place so that you can get everything done. Let him know there won't be a lot of down time until you get caught up. I agree with these ladies though. Good luck! I hope you get everything done soon.
