You know her & your situation, trust yourself to make a choice on it & then go with it."I've been homeschooling her since she was born, and I know it's paid off so far. When she was tested at the school, they were shocked by how much she knew- She knows far more than most of the kids her age, and she's closer to the level of a 5 year old already, so I know it's helping her. (She might have a learning disability though, at least they think she might). But anyways, I would LOVE to homeschool her forever, but I got divorced almost a year ago, and honestly, I can't afford to do it on my own...I need to start college once she's in kindergarten because I need to build a life for us....so I HAVE to send her to school eventually...my dilemma is that I feel bad sending her to school every day when she could be home with me for the rest of the year....She will be in pre-K in 2014 anyways, so really, she doesn't NEED pre-k right now...

Quoting ♫ boobook ♫:" She will only be this little once in her whole life. You are teaching her things. She is learning and ... [snip!] ... do it twice? IMO if you want to, which it sounds like you do... Pull her out and spend the year with her, before school starts."

It's just so damn difficult..."I am not sure if you thought I was suggesting you should homeschool. I was saying trust your judgement, like I trust mine. I was quite literal when I said my 2nd may go right into school, he seems to love it.....and I may still HS my first. I do what I can do & what works best for everyone. If you think it is good, send her, if you think it is not, then don't. That is all I was trying to say. Trust yourself to know the right thing to do & do it. Don't worry over whatever may or may not happen. If you don't need her to go right now & it doesn't seem to be working out well, then don't. You said yourself, she knows what she needs to know already anyway.
