There are so many good things about homeschooling (or in our case online school). Yes it is a lot of work but when I think of all the work I used to do when he was in school… I think I may have less to do now.
Also it is less stressful in so many ways. I don’t have to worry about getting “the call”. For us “the call” was a wide variety of things- he was crying, he hit someone, he flipped a desk over, he was threatening himself or someone else. It always made my heart stop.
Today somebody sent me this link:
Chardon High School article.
I about threw up. I watched the live feed today at work during lunch. This is such a horrible tragedy. This is very close to where I live. I have been to this town many times, it is a nice town. I even have family that lives there. I am not aware of any family members that were affected but that doesn’t matter. It felt too close for comfort.
I am praying for the victims. I am also praying for the child that felt this was the only way to handle it. This news article references that the suspect had been bullied. Such a horrible tragedy all around. I can’t imagine getting this call. Either as a victim or as the mom of the suspect that had finally snapped.
I am going to go hug my child and be thankful that I can school him at home.
