This. Although, if you are feeling overwhelmed with kindergarten then the problem probably isn't schoolwork at all. Taking care of any number of small children while dealing with depression is difficult so I would find a way to fix that first. I am not opposed to medication for PPD or even generalized depression, if your life and the life of your children is being affected by it then get help. And if you really want to keep them home then do, don't listen to negative family.
