Difficulties Prior to Enrollment
Katerina's enrollment in kindergarten is still more than a year and a half away, but it's already becoming clear that the biggest challenge in home schooling is going to be with the responses and reactions of others.
Katerina's grandparents have repeatedly brought up the subject of her starting kindergarten, usually commenting on the parenting challenges involved with public and private schools. My wife and I hinted a few times that home-school was a possible option, and their responses were less-than-favorable.
The few close associates that we've told about our home schooling plans were quite supportive, with most saying that they wished they were in a position to be able to educate their own children at home.
