Hi, I have been hs for about 2 1/2 years. I am now starting my middle child in preK and she loves it but my problem is that my 3rd grader now wants to do the preK stuff and "acts" like she does not know her 3rd grade lessons, when I know better. She is a very bright child and has always been pretty ahead for her age so here lately I have been letting her off a little easy when it comes time for the new stuff. I have her to read aloud alot and join in with us to do the crafts, which I do include in her lessons too, but she want to do the prek ones. But, now we are well into our 4th week of our "school year" and I feel she needs to step up and start doing her correct 3rd grade work. This is discouraging me to the point of wanting to give up. What is it going to be like when I have a 4th grader, a kindergardner and a pre-k next term. I just need some advise and support from a few of you out there that are hsing more than one child....and I know there are plenty out there who manage....please help.
