My husband accepted a job in another city (only two hours away) and we will be moving next week.  My 5 year old is in public K and I am concerned with the transition that there will be too much adjustments to put him in PS for just a few months.  I also thought this would be a good time to try out homeschooling.  My question is this, has anyone had children who are VERY outgoing and is the "class clown" and loves the attention from others so much that one on one he or she is very demanding on the parent?  My 5 year old son already wants to be a comedian and actor and is also a very talented artist.  He enjoys school but he enjoys being around the kids even more.  I have had two thoughts, exploring our new town will be educational and the talents he has we can concentrate on and nurture better from home. Does anyone have any experiences as to how a child like this will respond to home schooling?  Thank you for any thoughts you may have.

Actually two of the families I baby sat had a kid just like that. One of them, Anthony, actually DID act (when he was about 8) in a HBO movie. Both kids were homeschooled and did well.

 

I think the best thing to do is keep him involved in community activities (such as an acting class or something), but these kids actually do really well in homeschool enviroments - they just need to be kept in focus and possibly given small bursts of work, like "work on this for five minutes, then you can have a five minute break."

Thank you for the encouragement.  The five minute thing seems like a good idea with him. thanks

You're welcome! :)


Giving him small achievable goals seems to work really well.
