"I realised home schooling has gone totally to pot.. I’ve lost the will! is anyone still doing this? Is it just me who is kidding myself that if I shout at my son enough he will just do it? Is this going to have a detrimental effect on his life?? I spoke to a friend who said her circle of friends have all given up. I’m so tired of all the roles I have to play at the best of times on my own, I didn’t ever choose to add school teacher to them, as I always knew my limitations."
