Why do I always feel guilty?
Today, I was running through what I need for my 8th grader. Lessons plans for all subjects are ready and waiting. Except for Science. She's ahead and did 8th grade work last year, so she's not doing "official" science this year. She can't really go a day without science, (because she loves it and studies it on her own) but she does so much on her own, I don't have to "make" her do "official" science this year.
But I feel guilty. No lesson plans for science. I think: Am I an adequate mother? Should I make her to 9th grade science this year? What will I write down that we did for science? Oh the angst of being a homeschooling mother, all the responsibility goes right back to---well, ME!
Sometimes I wonder if parents who send their kids to school feel this way?
