Pulling out of school midyear?

I had planned to start homeschooling beginning of this year, but sent my son to ps first grade because I was due in September and afraid I couldn't handle it. Now I'm ready and wondering if I should wait until he finishes out his year? I don't want to cause any stress and he is doing fine at school. Would it be totally disruptive? Thoughts?

I pulled my 1st grade dd out about 7 weeks into school this year. I figure if that's what you want to do there's no time like the present

Re: Pulling out of school midyear?

I have actually been considering this myself. We send our children to private school, but my oldest has been struggling and having health issues. I have been pondering taking him out, but then not sure it would be a good idea to pull out just one child and not sure I could handle all three in the middle of the year. I keep thinking things will get better, but I'm not sure. My son is smart enough to do the work, I just don't think he applying himself totally.

If you feel confident in pulling him out I would probably go ahead and do it. Especially, if you had already planned to homeschool next year.

Re: Pulling out of school midyear?

We are in very much the same position. I had my youngest in September and we figured DS1 was so excited to go to 1st grade that that would be best to keep the continuity with all the other changes and send him. In our case we have decided to finish the year out. He is doing well enough so we thought it would be good to follow through with it and end on a high note. It's a great school with lots of enrichment but it's just not the direction we want to take. I would probably feel differently if he was miserable or was not doing so well in his studies.

I would but that's me. I've never had to but have LOTS of friends who have and what can the school do? I'd say why wait?

I agree nonipie, I think we've decided to wait and let him finish the year. Our situations sound very similar. I also talked with him about it and he doesn't want to leave midyear. I wasn't really concerned at all about the school or what they think, more of it causing stress for my son to be in the middle and start a new curric, miss the friends, etc. I sometimes wonder if the hs is right for him, considering how well this year has been going. But I feel called to do it. So, we will start this fall. Thanks for all the thoughts ladies.
