I have a teen stepdaughter who wants to homeschool/ online school. I am having major doubts if it is a good idea for her.
Last year she missed several days of school due to laziness, missing the bus, or skipping school without our knowledge. She was put on truency watch, and ultimetly failed a major class due to missed days. I feel that this lack of responsability for her education is a indicator of how she will slack in online schooling as well.
She spends a lot of time on the internet, my space etc against my better judgement and it seems like she may be wanting online schooling just to be able to stay at home all day, online.
Lastly, my husband works a lot and isnt very involved with her day to day schooling or homework. I try to help her as much as possiable when she brings home her work, but it is also challengeing for me becasue of the new teachings. We have two younger children who are in public school and very happy. I am a busy mom and I am not sure if I will be able to monitor online schooling. And more importantly, I dont know how to make my stepdaughter take this seriously.
My husband is all for it, because he is concerned about teen behavour at high school ( skipping, drugs, parties etc)
I need some advise asap!!
