    Posted: 17/Feb/2006 at 3:01pm

As of late, my fourth grader has been mixing with the "wrong crowd" at school.  I feel a bit helpless when it comes to issues at school because I am not there to guide him in his decisions.

He attends a really great school, but I am starting to think that isn't enough.

My husband and I were discussing the situation today and he brought up homeschooling.  We had thought about it before, but never went forward with it.

My son is very talented and accelerated within his class.  I'd hate to do him a disservice and make the wrong decision.

I also wonder if I am disciplined enough to make it happen.

Any advice from those that have BTDT?

Thanks.

What do you mean by the wrong crowd?

And if you think that he should be homeschooled, then do what you feel is best. Give it some thought, and ask him what he thinks. Would he like homeschool? Does he have a bad attitude to due to public school? Some schools are claimed to be 'great,' but in 6th grade, I went to a "prestigious" school, but as it turned out, the school was horrible.

PM me for more advice if you want it.
